Resizing a layout from an A4 folder into A5 leaflet
Propeller’s Senior Designer had created the basic template in A4. The artwork was to be resized to A5, obviously the font would be too small with a reduced print so a new layout using the existing components had to be created. Once this template was approved, all the other 12 golf course leaflets had to be created, changing the elements for each individual features. This also lead to creating handbooks, flyers, business cards and brochures in-house.
