Fold of the Week: Small Budget, Big Idea
Here’s what’s great about this week’s lesson:
- We’re looking at a Gate fold, a Tri-Fold and an Accordion, and we’ll see just how different but equally engaging these image techniques can be.
- This is a low-budget idea that can really enhance a concept, and it’s a great strategy to keep in mind as you develop or revisit marketing campaigns.
I could go on and on with this one 🙂 I hope you like the episode. Have a great week!
