What Program should I use? • Microsoft Word • Microsoft Publisher • Both of these programs have templates. Use them! The template will at least give you an idea of the set up and designs available. • Any other program that gets the job done!
First Panel • Display name of the product, company, or service • Provide a graphic to attract the reader’s attention and pictorially represents the topic • Provide contact information
Body Panels • Present Headings similarly, maintaining parallelism • Use Graphics effectively for interest and to clarify ideas • Use bullets and numbers to itemize ideas • Use appropriate font size to emphasize key points • Have ample white space
Content • Define unfamiliar terms if necessary • Check your grammar! • Answers reporter’s questions (who, what, where, when, how, why) • Use concise text (short words, sentences, paragraphs) • Use appropriate tone
FAQs Can I make stuff up? What do I have to turn in? • Be creative, but try to be a realistic as possible. Use the “real” address and names, if possible. Otherwise, yes, make up what you need to. • Turn in brochure electronically. Also, you need to turn in a COLOR copy of your brochure. Make sure it’s error free!
