Professional flyer in grayscale for a graduate leadership conference.

After sketching a dozen layouts, I got the opinion of a lab aid, a friend, and my roommate to decide which one I wanted to develop. When they all had one in common that they liked, I made the layout with Adobe Indesign. The corner elements pull the reader onto the page when set against a white wall, and the focus continues in a rough Z pattern following the tabs that are rounded to follow the corner elements. Graduate was left smaller than Leadership Conference because I wanted to emphasize what it was, rather than who it was for. The bulk of the body copy was put first, as it was assumed that a readers eyes would quickly scan to the end of the page, where they would find the pertinent details.

First and foremost, I am trying to show basic information to attract graduates, letting them see if it fits their schedule, then presenting them with the benefits.

Recent college graduates.

Best Takeaway:
Simplicity is key, and a picture of younger people does wonders to target them.

  1. I like how you put shapes at opposite corners; that helped catch my eye. I think you’re picture is a little overwhelming, but I like the placement of it. I also think that some of the extra information should have just stayed with the body copy, rather than taking up some of your white space. Your alignment looks good, but I think the “Graduate” looks a little off. Awesome design!
