Alphaport Brochure

Alphaport is an expanding knowledge management and engineering service company based in Cleveland, Ohio. I was connected with them through my internship at NASA and hired to work on the design of a new marketing brochure. It turned out to be one of the most in-depth print projects I’ve done to date and an extremely rewarding and beneficial learning experience.

This brochure was a art school teacher’s dream as it contained many terms taught in a graphic design course– score and fold, die cut, Pantone, spot colors, and so on.

front of brochure

This is the front of the brochure. To the right is a close-up of the cut-out on the front. We designed the cut-out to secure the outer flap of the brochure and keep the brochure closed.

This is the inside of the brochure.

This is the inside of the brochure. To the left you have the left hand inner side. As you can see, I had to design around the cut-out from the front. That was challenge! To the right, is a close-up of the flap, which was designed to reflect the same curved shape as the Alphaport logo.

This is a close-up of the pocket folder.

This is a close-up of the folder pocket on the inside of the brochure. It is meant hold  informational handouts for clients. It was a great learning experience to design a pocket! Also, pictured is an original graphic developed to explain the process of knowledge transfer.

This is the back.

Last but not least, the back of the brochure. The two people pictured are Tony and Miranda, the husband-wife owners of Alphaport and an absolute delight to work with! To the right is a close up shot of the business card holder on the back.

In addition to everything listed above, another really cool thing about this project was that I got to work directly with the  printer for the production of the brochure. A big shout out goes to Genie Repros in Cleveland for helping me get this brochure produced just as I pictured it. Nothing was too over the top for them and the customer service was fantastic! An additional cool factor was that it contains metallic ink. All the blue color you see is actually a metallic Pantone Spot color.

All in all, this brochure was so much fun to design and produce. I am extremely grateful this this experience. Thanks for reading!
