Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring gatefold brochures, part of Designing a Brochure (2009).
Now, of course, the trifold brochure is by no means the only game in town.…There are many, many alternatives to that and the gatefold brochure is one of them. …In the case of the gatefold brochure that I have designed, I made a legal…size document. Folded 3 times to create 4 panels, 8 panels in total and…the outside panels are folded into the center and then it's folded from the center again, …so that when the brochure is in its folded state, we see this as the first panel. …Then turning it over, we have panels 2 and 3, which fold into themselves, …and when you open those up, you reveal panels 4, 5, 6, and 7 of…the spread on Page 2.…
Let's take a look at the InDesign document and I think that will be a lot clearer.…Here we have Page 1. Here is my panel 1. On my panel 2 and 3, …I have got the sunflower image split across those panels so that when they are folded…into the middle the image becomes a whole.…I am using the 4th panel here, the 8th panel in total, as a mailing panel,…this brochure being a self-mailer. It's always a good idea to check with the post office…
