3 Shaped Roll Fold Brochure Ideas: Fold of the Week
So, I thought it would be fun to share three of my favorite shaped Roll folds with you this week.
What’s super-cool about these formats:
- All three feature rolling panels, finishing to entirely different shapes. Although they have a common thread (rolling panels), each shape provides a very different opening experience.
- There is also tremendous variation in the concept and the purpose of each brochure. One is a self-promotional piece, one is an event invitation, and one is a corporate capabilities brochure.
- Skilled production details are evident in all three — shaped Roll Folds are very tricky to set up, and it takes expertise to set up the production dieline correctly. All of these are very well planned and executed.
This is a fun one. I hope you find these designs as inspiring as I do.
