1. Class Introduction: So here in this in design tutorial, I'm gonna share some tips on how to set up a trifled flyer. So we're gonna be looking at how we set up the alignment, how he set up some guides and then also how we worked with columns on images to create the design that you can see up on screen here. The studio is going to include a lot of really cool tips for working with in design. We're going to cover how to create paragraph styles. We're gonna cover how to create custom image boxes using the selection tool in the direct selection tool. We're gonna talk about how to create custom backgrounds for our trifled flyers. And a lot of these techniques will transfer to other projects that you might be doing in adobe in design. So we're going to jump straight in here, and we're now gonna go ahead and have a look how we set up our project in at IBM Design 2. Setup an InDesign Project: So the first thing we're gonna do here is we're gonna go to the file menu and new, and we're gonna create brand new document. Now, the trifle fly that we're gonna set up is going to be a letter size. So we're going to jump to letter. So 8.5 by 11 we're going to set up his ah landscape project, and we're gonna change a couple of seconds here. So that's easy to work with our design. So if we turn off facing pages here, we don't need the Monfort for this particular project on Then change the number of pages from 1 to 2. So this is just a two sided print out on a letter, she of paper that would then be folded into your trifled flyer. We're going to set up margins, and we're gonna cut these a little closer to the edge than no 20.5 inches. So we're gonna make it a point to five inches, okay. And I'll just lock these values together. So we get the same margin around the whole edge of our project on, we're going to set up a bleed of 0.1 to 5 inches Now, if you're working in centimeters, you might want to type in a three millimeter bleed. And if you're used to typing in centimeters, But you see inches here that actually you can type in a value of millimeters, Andi in design will do the math for you, so you don't need to think about what the bleed needs to be. But I'm gonna stick with 0.1 to 5 inches, and that's gonna be the document that we're gonna be working with so many print document. The number of page is gonna be to 8.5 by 11 on the landscape project. We're not going to set up any columns here. We're gonna have margins of 110.25 inches and then we're gonna go ahead and have a bleed of 0.1 to 5 inches. So once you've got that will set up, think like, OK, so first things first. Here, we're going to save our projects. I'm just gonna go to file save as and I'm gonna save these to the desktop for the moment. And as I'm saving my projects, I'm gonna version them so often when I'm saving projects. I wanna say versions as I'm making big changes to those documents. So I'm gonna call this trifled class on. I'm gonna type V 01 So normally, what I'll do is are safe Project version one version, too. And I might go through 345 versions a day on. The reason for that is just in case you have a problem. When you're saving one, those versions, like your network drive, goes down or you have a computer crusher of power failure. Exactly. At the moment you're saving, then you can at least jump back to the previous version. So you're trying to avoid any work catastrophes basically, and it's good practice in in design and other programs. Tutor to kind of version off your work. So I'm not going to go ahead on and saver now that saved. We're gonna go ahead to the next step and have a look at setting up our layers 3. Setup Project Layers & Sections: So when I'm working on a project like this, I like to keep things separated as layers. So essentially, what I'll do in my layers panel is I'm gonna have a layer for my background images. Okay, so I'm gonna set this first layer up as my background images, and then the next layer I'm gonna have just double click here is gonna be my text content. Another layer will be my image content. Okay. And then the next layer up, I'm gonna have as my guides. So this is the first layer we're gonna work on. We're gonna set up guides for our project here. And when I'm working on different layers, what I like to do is lock off the layers as I'm working, just so that I know which layer I'm working exactly. It stops any problems happening, and it's kind of good practice toe to keep the layers that you're not working on locked off . So I'm gonna place on three guides on my project here to mark out where the folds will be on this project. So I'm gonna grab my rectangle tool and just draw a rectangle with a fill, but no stroke. So no stroke gonna fill and then I'm gonna drag it from corner to corner. And once I've drawn that, I just want to make sure that the size that is 8.5 by 11 it should snap from corner to corner When you draw that now, in orderto make this the width of this exactly 1/3 off the fly allow. I'm going to divide the 11 that I have here by three. But before I do that, I'm just gonna set the reference point to the center so that when I divide that by three, So I'm just typing in slash three. After the 11 inches, it's gonna snap to the middle. Now, actually, I wanna place this shape on my master patient guides appear on every single page that I have, So I'm gonna go to edit, cut or command and excel control the next on the PC, and then I'm gonna go to my pages, jumped my master page and then go to edit on paste in place. That's gonna pace that shape right in the middle. Once that's in place, I can drag a guide to the left here and then a guide to the right. Okay, so if I move this black shape now, you can see I've got two guys. They're perfectly positioned. Once I've done that, I can delete that shape. So we've got our guides out here. We're going to go ahead now and add our background images. 4. Add Background Images: So I'm gonna jump to page one first for my project, and I'm going to set up three columns of, ah, background image first for this, the outside of the flyer. So if we look at the page numbers here, this is gonna be my first page, the opening page of my trifle flyer. So as this folds in, this will be inside. This will be on the back and this will be on the front And then the reverse side for Paige to this will be the spread that we see when we unfold the fly on page two. So here I'm gonna go ahead and place an image that I'm going to use in my background is gonna jump to my layers unlocked my background images I like that layer and then lock my guides layup And then I'm gonna go to the Frenzel said that to the rectangle friends and then just drag out a frame across that in design document. So working on the background image here now, I'm gonna go to file and place on a jump toe some images that I've got it set up here. I'm gonna jump in tow. This folder got some images that were just preview here, Andi, on a pick and image, that's gonna kind of work. And we're gonna be able to push back in the background of this image. And we're gonna have a look at a couple of techniques for that as well. So I only go ahead and grab this image off Whitby Abbey. Click open. That's gonna place it in there. And then I'm gonna go ahead and use the fill frame proportionally option toe. Fill that flyer up. 5. Add a Color Tint and Fade to Background Images: So obviously, if we start to place text and images over the top of this, we're going to run into trouble with the high contrast of this image that we're gonna run through a couple different techniques toe to deal with it. So first of all, I'm gonna grab my selection tool, so moving away from the rectangle frame tool and then I'm going to come to window on Defects and Dr my effects panel across on the right hand side. Now, if you don't see all the different panels that I have set up here, then you'll find those in the window menu so you can go to those and we're gonna go ahead here, and I'm just gonna drop the opacity of this layer down to around 35%. And once that's done, what I want to do is distinguish between the different columns that I have here for this particular flyer. So I'm gonna grab my rectangle tool, and I'm gonna drag a rectangle across on the left hand side here, and I'm just going to get it to snap to my guides. Okay, so once I got that set up, I'm gonna change the color here. And I'm going to use my color options in here to create any Swatch going to go to see him like a drop the black right down. And I'm gonna mix together some magenta andi yellow to make a nice orange here at a bit more yellow here. And once that's added, I'm gonna go ahead to my effects again and change this color mode to color. So it's gonna add a nice color sheen over here, which is gonna enable us toe place in Texas over the top of this and still keep the visibility of the layer in the background. Actually, is looking a little bit too high. Contrast stills and he's gonna grab that background layer on. Drop this down to 25% just toe remove that contrast from the the image as it lays over and then gonna grab this orange layer and then just duplicate that across to the right hand side. So this is the front of my fly, remember? And then I'm gonna do the same to the middle on Set this up here so it once that's in the middle, I'm going to just adjust the width of it. A little bit. So snaps to those guys and then I'm gonna change the color here. So here I have my orange. Okay. And I'm just gonna save that CME my case watch so that I have it for later. So it's now in my swatches panel at the bottom here and for this new color, I'm gonna go to my color menu, go to see him like a and I'm gonna drop down the magenta on the yellow and just pull in some blue there so we get a nice color that's distinct from the other parts of the design. So what we're looking at doing here really is dropping back that image in the backgrounds that we can place text over the top of it as well as other images. Now, what I want to do in the next section is have a look, a different technique for doing this so that we can break the page apart 6. Vector Background: So we're gonna come down toe page two now, and I'm gonna grab my rectangle tool and drag this across my design here, and I'm going to go to my swatches on Just use the same orange watch that I create before, So I'm going to create a line that kind of run Stanley across the middle of this, so jumped the toolbar and grab your direct selection tool, which is the white marital. And then I'm gonna pull this up here on this side down. And now I'm gonna have ah, look at using the Pathfinder to split this up a little bit. So the first thing we're gonna do is just copy this, go to edit copy and then edit paste in place. I've got a copy of that layer on top and I'm gonna move with the direct selection tour, which is why he's before this point, down to the bottom, left on this point down to the bottom, right. And I just change the color of this for the moment to yellow just so we can see what's happening here. Now what I want to do is I want toe reverse this. So I'm gonna have orange in the top, left corner, orange in the top, right, and then orange in the bottom. So I'm gonna grab my rectangle tool and draw a rectangle across the middle of this design. Track that to the right, Drag that to the left until it snaps. Andi, I'm just gonna make a copy. That's going to need it later. So I'm gonna go to edit copy, and then for the top most layer. I'm gonna select both of these objects on go to window object and layout and Pathfinder. And I'm going to use this second option in the Pathfinder to remove the rectangle from the front so you can see it's going to slice a whole in that shape. And I'm going to go to edit Paste in place to pace that rectangle back in. And now I'm gonna grab the yellow Square and the black rectangle and used the third options of the Intersect, which is going to give me this bottom layer. Okay, so we've got it black there for the moment on, then I'm just gonna change this to the orange. We get this nice layout where we can play some text on the top here and also manage and adjust these different layers. Now, with a direct selection tool, we can still go in and start toe play around with the alignment off these by moving these points together. But we'll keep it as this kind of nice diagonal line running across our designer. So now let's move on and have a look at how we can ASM begin to add some text into our design here. 7. Adding Body Type: So in the first part, this class we set up two sides to our trifled fly, one with images in the background, and we sat players to manage that. So all of our images Aaron, this background image layer. So now we're gonna go ahead and look at adding our text content over the top over in a short background layer. So let's look the background images layer on, open up the text content layer on what we're really gonna be looking at here is setting up a three column layout on then styles for headings and paragraphs within our flyer. So we're gonna have ah two column layout on the first page that we have here and then a three column layout on the second page. And the reason for that is that this first page is actually going to be just two pages of typed with the front cover being across here on the right. So the way the trifle flyer folds means that this will be our for uncover. So we're gonna go ahead and grab our title, make sure we've got the type player, the text content layer selected, and then I'm gonna drag out a type player here. So now I want to do is go straight away to my object text from options and I'm going to create a two column text box. Now, Once have done this, I need to adjust the gutter. So this text box lines up with the middle here, so I'm gonna increase the gutter 2.5 inches and then I'm going to go ahead Onda just the right inset so that its 0.25 inches So it matches there in setting the other spots as well . So we'll see. We just need to unlock the insect spacing here first of all, and then push this up 2.25 inches and you can see once it's there, click OK on. Our insect is making our columns that line up nicely throughout the text box. So if I go to type filled with placeholder text, you can see we've got type that is perfectly spaced from the edge of the page here across the fold here and then on the right hand side here so quickly justify that. You can see we're getting this nice text low, this nice kind of block of type and that's what we're gonna begin to work with here. So we'll go ahead and now set up a three column layout on the next page, and I'm gonna grab the type tool again, draw a new text box. And in this case, because we've got three columns straight off the bat when we go to object text frame options, we don't need to adjust the insect spacing. We're just increasing the number of columns to three and then changing the gutter 2.5 so that it lines up perfectly there. So now that we've got our columns set up, then we'll just add some type in here. We'll go ahead and look at how we start to modify types Epsom paragraph styles in the next section two. This lesson. 8. Create Paragraph Styles: Okay, so I'm gonna jump up to my selection tool on just move up to the first page here. So I'm gonna set up two styles here, one for the body type and one for the titles. So that's just double click into our first paragraph here, and we'll go ahead and set up the body type paragraphs. Well, first of all, so I'm gonna come to paragraph, start across here on the right. If you don't see the paragraph styles, go to the type menu on part way down there, you'll see the paragraph styles panel. Just click on that and it will bring it up on. I'm gonna create a brand new paragraph style. We'll call this main buddy in the basic character formats we're going to use myriad pro. I'm gonna leave us at regular when I change this down to 11 points or so a little just so they could get a little bit more content into this flyer. But then I'm gonna increase the leading to 14 point, so we get some nice space between those lines. So 11 point type 14 point leading on. I'm also gonna go to my indents of spacing and just increase the space after the paragraph so that we've got some nice space between paragraphs. So let's click OK to that on. Gonna jump in here and do this electoral and format my type as the main body type. And then we'll come down to our next text box and select all on do the same. So we've got a little funny thing going on here. We've got text flying over this design that we set up, but we're gonna fix that with an image a little bit. So let's go ahead and set up some heading styles. So, you know, type in a break here and type in the title. I want to get that title selected. Can actually go ahead and make a new paragraph style. I will call this main title. Okay. Most of name that will jump into our basic character formats. We're gonna make this 14 point. I'm going to make the font size style semi bold and because we over the top of the color here, we can actually do a reverse here so we could make this white if we want it wanted to. So one option here is to make the color of this paper, which is going to look quite nice. So we'll use that as one title option. Okay, Actually gonna have a couple of title options that I'll show you. So this will be our 1st 1 Andi, I'm just gonna drop in a couple more here, okay? And you can see it's working quite nicely in different areas. And this contrast between the white here on this background, will it. Pretty good once is printed out, so we get a nice contrast between those. So let's set up one Mawr Styler title, and I'm just gonna delete this paragraph style one that we seem to have hanging here. We don't need it going to delete it. And I'm gonna replace everything that start with that paragraph as the main body style. So let's go ahead now and add in a second style. Okay, So in that the areas of white text here that we have obviously we can't have white type for our title. So we're create second title style. I'm gonna format. This is the title, so it grabs the same size and everything, and then I'm gonna create a new style and we'll call this main title two and you can see it's based on my entitle one. So if we do any changes in main title one size, the front, that kind of thing, that we're not going to change here specifically and those changes will flow through, two are connected style. So in here, I'm gonna change my character color to this orange that we're using. So that's gonna work quite nicely with the orange and click. OK, so now we've got a couple styles working for us within our flyer. Andi, we're ready to go ahead on Dad's emerges. 9. Adding Image Content: So we've come back to the first page here, and this is where we're gonna add in some images, First of all, for our flyer. So I'm gonna go to file and place, and we've got a few different images here that we can pop in here. So I'm gonna use a couple of these ones have got nice image of the surfboard. We've got the same image of Whitby Abbey, which will pop in there as well on. Then we've got this nice image of these guys heading on the beach on a pony in traps will grab those three images. And when we place more than one image like this, we basically can drag them out one at a time throughout our design. And you can see that my smart guy toe getting things to snap nicely to the edges of the type There. Okay, 10. Create Text Wraps for Images: So let's go ahead here now, and we're gonna work on these images a little bit. So first thing we need to do is out of text wraps. So I'm gonna highlight my image on go to window on text Trump and I like to bring this up straightaway because not all the options that you need for text trap are in these options up in the options tour by here. So I'm gonna turn on textract. I'm just gonna increase the space a little bit, and then you can see as I move my image. Now the text will jump around a little bit. Just reduce this wrapping a little bit so that we get a slightly tighter wrap around there , okay? And I'll do the same for this guy case. We're going for point, not 65 for the rap, and I'm gonna crop this image a little bit. So we just kind of keep the surfboard on its own like so. And then we'll jump down to this abbey image now for the abbey image. I'm going to get it to flow across a slightly larger area. So I'm just gonna expand out the box. Andi then Once I got that box expanded, I'm going to use the fill frame proportionally option to fill that frame up. 11. Custom Image Frame Shapes: and what I'm gonna do here is actually grabbed the direct selection tool and just tweet the flow of this image. Okay, we're gonna increase the size of this again in a second so that it matches some of the lines that we've set up here. So just gonna push this like, so we'll get it to flow right to the edge on. And once that's ready, I'm gonna go to fill for, unfortunately again. And actually, we just need toe drop that down a little bit, okay? But you can see we get it's nice kind of juxtaposition of the lines flowing in here nicely by working with the direct selection tool on with any images that you're using or just have toe see how things flow so that you get that image working just perfectly. So once you've got that in, they're just gonna hit this again and make sure it's align nicely on weaken. Hit the circle in the middle, and then just use the cursor keys to nudge this into position that we're happy with. And now we can wrap around this image. I'm gonna highlight my image. Go to this rat option. The wraparound object shape. Okay, Just increase the padding a little bit and you can see now we get this nice wrap where the type as we moved image is flowing around that image. I need to play with us as well. You may need toe push and pull the image a little, Just a kind of get it to work nicely. But you can get some some nice effects in your design by using that technique. So let's had one more image in here. I'm gonna grab this image of the channel Marca and we'll just drag this out and again, we're gonna play with this one a little bit too. Just toe, get a bit of variety happening within our layouts are just gonna open this up, fill that proportionally on, and we'll tell the text wrapping as well Wraparound object shape. And then I'm just gonna click on my circle in the middle here just to nudge this down and you can see we're getting a nice flow between those two images on. We could work on this and more to get it toe work just perfectly. Okay if we click away from everything and hold down shift on tap W we'll get a little preview of the layout that we set up on Dhere what we're interested in, and I just spotted that I need toe add a little bit of having around here is the technical aspects of what we're doing. So this, working with the images on getting them to flow differently around the page is beginning to work quite nicely there. 12. Create a Reverse Type Style: So let's just add in one more paragraph style here. So I'm gonna go to my paragraph Styles are gonna make a new body style, and I'm gonna make this new body style So main body whites and we're just gonna make a text for this particular style White so that we have a different style that we can flow over the top off these paragraphs. And we'll need toe modify our text out of working on this so that we get the text in these kind of areas toe flow as we want to. And we're just pushing and pulling things around as we get this working just perfectly. We always got some more work to do with this particular design, but we're gonna move on to the next stage. Obviously you can play around with your own design a little bit more on. We're gonna look how we can begin to lay out the front cover for our flyer 13. Design Your Cover: Okay, so we're gonna switch back to our front cover here and have a look at creating the front of our flyer. So I'm gonna go ahead and grab the title. And if we look at our layers here, we're still working on the text content part of our project. So I'm gonna pull out text box across this column on go to my object sex free options on set up my insect spacing. So I only really need to start the insects basing from the left hand side here. Two points, 25 set matches the other side of this. So let's type in the title for this particular flyer. 14. Custom Front Cover Paragraph Style: And so for this particular title, I'm gonna show you how to do something a little bit different with it. So we're gonna go ahead and jump into our paragraph styles. We're going to create our front cover style. We're going to use some of the same for my thing that we have in the other. So myriad pro. We're gonna make this bold, and we're also going to set this to all caps and then we're just gonna push the font size up so that we get this flowing nicely across the health flyer. So when you're designing these fliers, they normally sit within a box or container. So you want to get some of the main text content on the top here. So your main title for the Flyer, your event, your venue all up at the top there. So I'm gonna go ahead now and set the color for this type. So we're going to set the color as this blue, and then we're gonna go ahead and use the paragraph rules to drop a background behind this type. So we're going to use the rule above, turn it on on. Then I'm gonna increase this. I'm holding down shift so that I'm making it a very large size. And as we go, we're gonna set the background toe the paper color. Okay, so two white in this case on, then I'm gonna offset this down. So a negative number and eventually you'll see that that's box is gonna drop nicely behind our type. This is a nice trick for creating a box behind a title you can use in a number of different scenarios. And then we can also change the left in Dent. So it's negative. So it pops out to the left and the right in dent to a negative as well. So it pops out to the rights. We get this nice outline toe highlight that particular types that will increase in the contrast. So it's gonna pop out and stand out a bit more, and they're gonna go in and increase some of these lines of type manually will have to go back in and adjust that backdrop in a sec. But I'm not too worried about that. So will now jump in here, go to the paragraph rules and just tweak this a little bit on also gonna come in here on a just some of the colors here. So I'm gonna change this type color to orange, A bit of difference there. And I'm gonna change the leading so that it pulls a bit closer to the type about so really just pushing and pulling things around until we're happy with a look of feel the flow of what we have here. So I jump back into the front cover style, come back to my paragraph rules and just drop this down in size a little bit and adjust the offset. And then I'm gonna go ahead and turn on the rule below. And now with this, I'm gonna do the same for the left and right intent in debt. So they line up with my other indents, and then I'm just gonna increase the height of that and offset it. So now we get this line below also up within our paragraph style, with a little bit of manual manipulation within the type itself. So we have this nice front cover for our project, and one thing I think we'll do here now is jump in and go to file place. How we gonna grab another image for this one off this Surf mobile, which is the perfect vehicle, obviously, for exploring England's coastline. It's going creates the height of that, get it to fill. It looks pretty perfect. So we got some room for some or content down here as well. Perhaps, and more images about England's coastline so we can go in place in some more images and so on and so forth, and then we can have a footer here as well. So if I highlight these two images, turn on my text rap, then I couldn't throwing a line break on. I'm typing down here. I'll change that to my main body text as white. We're just throwing an extra line, break their on and then we'll just fill the rest of this within placeholder text. 15. Finishing Up Your Design: and now we'll leave this design here. We've covered quite a few nice tips for creating flyers for creating the trifled set up on , then also for doing some interesting things with your paragraph styles to set up different types of type players. There's lots more we can do here on. One thing to explore is creating lists. Another thing is, if we draw, grab our images here, I'm gonna go to edit on copy and edit paste in place and then for the copy, these images that you can see above here just gonna double clicking their delete the images on Highlight those two what on our text frames change the object options so that they're now the content is unassigned. And I'm gonna then fill these with the blue that we're using. Nudge this down. So just grab those on, nudge them down, and then if we go to object, arrange and some backwards a couple times, then we'll have a nice line that matches the flow that image underneath. We could use the blue in some spots on the orange in other spots to get a little bit of a dynamic feel to it, and we could do the same for some of these areas of Texas. Well, honestly, as we keep pushing and pulling things around, we're gonna have to manipulate how text another tip for dropping a shape below an image. Now, in setting these layers up, I put my images onto my text content later, actually. Want to move them out of that layer? So I'm gonna highlight these images, go to my layers and with them highlighted, I can come across this red spot here on drag them up to the images land. Now, you could see my images are on my images layer rather than on my text layer. And I'll do the same for the first page as well. I can click on all these images on, then pull them up onto the green layer. Now you can see I can turn on off all the images on the image layer in one go and I'll lock these down and we're ready to go ahead now and export a version of this flyer for print 16. Exporting for print: Okay, so let's go ahead and export a print. Ready Pdf, off this project. So we're gonna go to file Adobe PDF presets on high quality print. Now, the main thing that we need to do here, if we're sending to a printer, is make sure that when we get into the PDF dialog box that will just press save now there with Soviet to the desktop when we get in here and we check the marks and bleeds. So I want my crop marks on my bleep marks turned on Andi, assuming you've got your image adjustment just perfect, and then that should be the main thing that you need to change here. We can get into compressing images down, but the default for adobe in design is pretty good. If you wanna get into more advanced image manipulation, then you might want to look at manipulating your images and converting them to see him like a image. But it's not always necessary. And then under the other options here, use no color conversion on The rest of these options are really to do with locking down the file. So the main thing to change here is their marks and bleeds so that you have the crop marks . Sorry, that bleed marks as well. And then also, you're using the bleed settings. So let's press export here. We've got to ever set text. I'm not gonna worry about that because we're just using this Latin placeholder text of the moment, so we'll click. OK, and ah, pdf is exporting. We can jump to the desktop, and now you can see we've got the pdf ready. Ready? With our crop marks on and with everything that we need to print this file out. Okay. Thanks for watching. I hope you've enjoyed that. Has a few tips here for setting up a tri fold fly. I'm forgetting things. Align perfectly, Andi. Obviously, there's a lot more design work that you can push into your own designs for creating these types of projects, but I hope this has been a useful starting point for you.
