Illustrata Brochure

The design of a 4pp brochure was the second part of the Illustrata project for ProQuest.

This brochure went into detail on the product and how it can help researchers looking for scholarly content.

We worked up a number of initial concepts for the cover (see a selection of concepts in the gallery below) before settling on a ‘code wheel’ idea that expands nicely on the concept we came up with for the logo. 

The code wheel is made up of a selection of key phrases relating to Illustrata.

The phrases have 3 levels of ‘weighting’ to show relevance which is also an aspect of how the system deals with actual search queries.

We designed the initial brochure as a portrait A4 but there was also a requirement to redesign it for screen format (as it would be widely shared over email), personally I really like the screen format one so that’s the version you will find below.

If you have any design projects you would like to talk about just let us know.
