What Our Customers Say

Customer experience is our number one priority. Here's what some of our clients have to say about us

What is the brochure design service?

What is the brochure design service?

An effective brochure can be a key marketing tool. Whether it forms part of your digital marketing with an online, downloadable brochure for users or you choose to print off brochures for your readers to have to hand, they are a great way to promote your business, products or services to a target audience. 

Sometimes those online brochure makers and generic brochure templates just don’t cut it. They can be especially hard to use and time-consuming if you don’t have a background in design. For effective, well-crafted marketing material, you need an experienced designer to take care of the design elements of your brochure. From online brochures to traditional paper brochures, your assigned Design Cloud designer can create visuals that you and your readers are going to love.

For each client, we select the brochure type that best suits your brand and the purpose of your content. When you submit a request for us to work on your brochure project, you need to have an existing idea of how you want your brand to look visually. With this information, our expert brochure designers can then carefully use the design elements – such as colours, fonts and the layout – that keep your brand’s visual identity consistent. Please remember though that we do not offer copywriting services, so our designers will only focus on the appearance of your brochure. If you’d like to gather some inspiration, take a look at our portfolio full of previous design projects we have worked on for a range of clients, from marketing agencies to small businesses and sales teams.

How do I design a brochure with Design Cloud?

How do I design a brochure with Design Cloud?

Whenever you’d like to submit a request, either for one of our professional brochures or for any other type of graphics as a part of your package, all you need to do is log in to the online portal or contact us by email if you’d prefer. We’ll then review your request and ask any necessary questions to make sure we have all of the information needed. When that’s sorted, we’ll get started on your brochure. After we’ve completed the work, we’ll send it back to you and you can request any amendments if needed, simply by submitting another request through the portal.

At Design Cloud, we offer a simple but scalable solution to businesses that need graphic design. Our approach makes us the ideal service for different businesses, marketing agencies and a range of other teams. We don’t operate as a traditional design agency or a marketplace, but what we do offer is all the advantages of hiring an in-house team, without the cost of doing so. We are a much cheaper solution – our packages, starting from £549 a month, give you access to unlimited graphics, whenever you need them, at a fixed, flat fee. Whilst we might be considerably cheaper than an in-house team, we still produce exceptional brochure designs and share the same passion for your projects.

Here at Design Cloud, our designers carefully consider format, colour, design, and graphics to create a professional brochure design. A brochure should highlight your business’s function and structure, convincing readers that you are the best company for the job.

Besides the visual, brochures typically include things such as products and services, location, resources, capabilities, successes, performance, and skills, evidencing that your company is able to provide a stable, reliable, and professional service for even the most complex of projects.

In this sense, a corporate brochure design serves as reassurance to customers and prospects, evoking confidence in your brand. As a graphic design agency, our designers will come up with a professional and creative design that will generate a strong impression of your business, and the quality of its products and services.

If you’re interested in improving your banner design, why not check out our range of unlimited graphic design subscription plans? You’ll get unlimited graphic designs for a monthly fee, starting from just £549 per month. With every plan, you can benefit from the ability to request unlimited graphic design work and unlimited revisions.

FAQs about our brochure design service

DesignCloud

Can I have as many pages in my brochure as I like?

Yes, you can have as many pages as you like. However, please keep in mind that requests for big brochures may take us a little longer to complete, so allow plenty of time for your designer to receive your brief, complete the work and then send it back to you.

DesignCloud

Will you provide images for my brochure?

We have several licenses that give us access to high-quality stock imagery that can be used in all our projects, including our brochures. If you have any photos that are specific to your business and need including, these can be sent to your designer to be included. We can provide graphics and stock images but please note that we do not create illustrations as a part of our services.

DesignCloud

When will my brochure be sent to me?

Our turnaround time is usually 24 hours after receiving your request, but please allow extra time for larger brochures or more complex design requests. If we anticipate your design taking longer than 24 hours, we will always let you know at the earliest opportunity when you will receive your finished brochure. You can also check in on your designer to see how much progress they have made, by simply logging into your portal to chat with them.

DesignCloud

Will you print the brochures for me?

We are a design service and therefore do not offer brochure printing services. However, we can send your brochure over in any size or format you’d like, so then you’ve got a brochure ready to print straight away.

DesignCloud

How do I talk to my designer about how I want my brochure to look?

We know that communication is an integral part of the design process – it’s important that you tell us what your ideas are, so then we can help bring them to life in a design you’re going to love. To help you communicate with your designer at any time, we have an easy-to-use online portal that allows you to chat to them about the look you want.

DesignCloud

Where is my designer based?

Unlike some graphics services, we never outsource our work. That means all of our team are based in the UK and our HQ is based in Manchester. Timezones and language barriers are never an issue when you’re working with our team, meaning that communication is always simple and straightforward. We hire all of our designers directly, ensuring they have commercial experience and a background in design.

Know your objective

Know your objective

Before putting pen to paper and submitting a request for Design Cloud to create a stunning, custom brochure, it’s important to take some time and consider your objectives. As well as highlighting your business’ function, brand feel and professional services, a brochure is an informative design at its core – using a wide variety of graphics and creative copy to bring everything to life.  Discerning the Who, What, Where, When, and Why within your brochure will help make a clear and compelling piece of marketing material, drawing the right people to the right messaging. Understanding who your audience will be, what kind of brochure would suit your business, where it will be seen, and why your service offering is being highlighted are all good places to start.

It might also help to consider what makes your business unique. What values drive your company? Who is your target audience? Which specific services or products are you looking to highlight? Great examples of brochures will answer these questions, spotlight the feel of your brand and get those all-important conversations started.

Knowing your customers

Knowing your customers

As a communicative bit of design, an eye-catching and professional brochure will speak directly to the consumer, so it helps to understand your customers and target market. Whatever your business background, getting insight as to what interests and draws your audience should boost your copy and inform our team on the design concepts that will really fly. 

Customer feedback is a great way to identify what consumers want or would love to see from your business. There are a number of ways to collect this information – from quick email surveys, web forms, personalised responses, and direct interviews, you’ll know which method will work best for your clients and yield the most information. Understanding the needs of your target audience opens up more opportunities for dynamic copy throughout the brochure’s entire design, with their responses making a helpful guideline.

What’s your call to action?

What’s your call to action?

In marketing, a call to action (or CTA) is an instruction or invitation that encourages the audience to take a desired action or response. This is the real purpose of your brochure, so take some time to consider what exactly you want to shout about and how best to motivate your target market. Brief, persuasive calls-to-action that use strong verbs have the most success, but getting creative also stands out from the crowd and ensures that your brochure has a voice of its own. Deciding what the driving force behind your brochure will be early on will give your copy a point and, most importantly, a purpose that will keep your reader hooked till the very last line.

How to craft a design brief

How to craft a design brief

Once you’ve got a good collection of ideas, it’s time to put our unlimited graphic design subscription plan to use and pen a design brief. This brief will be key to helping our creative team conceptualise and create the look of your brochure. 

Being clear and concise is the best way to get your business needs across while avoiding redos and miscommunication between you and your graphic designer. Take some time to consider your brand assets and guidelines to ensure your new brochure will fit seamlessly into any marketing materials you may already have. Another important detail includes any formatting requirements, such as the dimensions and intention, alongside the vision you have for the design itself. If you have any preference for fonts, colours, or specific imagery – such as team photos or logos – make sure these are included within the brief. Using the objectives you considered earlier, it might be useful to write down all those aspects and think about the words and any imagery that will help your customers get a feel for your brand and services, which can be referred to during the design process.

Finally, it’s important to give the design team a realistic deadline for any work to be completed. Depending on how complex your type of brochure is, a dedicated expert graphic designer will get in touch to discuss the process and final date – then the exciting part begins!

What do you write in a brochure?

What do you write in a brochure?

At Design Cloud, we take your content and create brochures that capture the look, style, and feel of your brand voice. Crafting a strong visual identity using a suite of design tools and creative skills is very much in our wheelhouse, but as we do not provide copywriting services, here are some tips and tricks that can help you write engaging content for brochures. As for background colours, striking design, formatting options and graphics, we’ve got that covered.

DesignCloud

Headlines and tone

A compelling headline can work wonders for consumer-facing copy, and it will often make the difference between your brochure getting the attention it deserves or – and we hate to say it! it being put in the bin. Keep your headline concise but interesting with the help of ‘power’ words, which aim to spark a reaction from the reader. Confident terms such as ‘more’ and ‘number one’ are also proven methods, as are words that appeal to people’s ego: ‘discover’, ‘new’, and writing that speaks directly to your audience keeps people hooked. 

To keep hold of your reader’s interest, whether they study or skim, it’s usually best to use a straightforward writing style. A clear but conversational voice gives brochures the best of both worlds: a professional style that still holds the attention of your audience without being too boring! The goal is to communicate your points to a wide audience, and a conversational tone does just that. 

It’s also important to remember how your copy will look once it’s been handed over and incorporated into the overall graphic design. Try to avoid too many words by keeping the body of text trimmed and concise, as smaller paragraphs work best when coupled with engaging graphics and imagery. This will help customers retain information and actually digest the messaging your brochure is trying to get across.

DesignCloud

Subheadings

Brochures are typically skim-read by people, so make sure yours is easy to navigate with simple, concise headings and subheadings. Teamed up with a solid font alongside engaging visuals, these will serve as the GPS of your marketing materials, so it’s important to make them as accurate as possible. Avoiding industry jargon and acronyms is a good idea, so you don’t run the risk of alienating potential customers and switching them off entirely.

A simple table of contents at the beginning of your brochure will also solve this problem, helping guide readers to the information they want to consume. It also shows your content off in a very short space, giving customers a feel for the services and products available with little effort.

DesignCloud

Invite action

Once you’ve decided what your audience should do once they have read your brochure, it’s time to put it into words – persuasively. After hooking the reader with all that information, your brochure should end with a call to action that invites the consumer to perform a desirable action that may convert to more business, such as call, visit your website or fill out a form – the list goes on. Whether you want to entice the reader with exclusives, such as a discount, or appeal to their emotions by promising fewer headaches, the CTA is the final flourish of an impressive brochure. 

Writing copy for brochures needs to go further than just presenting information about yourself or your company. When combined with cohesive, strong branding and graphic design, it needs to persuade and keep your target audience engaged. Doing your research and finding out what motivates your desired customer base to think about buying into your product or service will give an extra edge to your copywriting and tap into consumer focus, making readers more willing to get in touch.

How long does it take to get set up?

Once you’ve completed sign-up, you’ll receive your account log-in details and you’ll be able to start submitting design requests instantly through the app or via email. It typically it takes around 24hrs for us to get you set up with your designer and to get them working on your requests.

What does unlimited graphic design actually mean?

As a Design Cloud subscriber, there is no limitation to the number of design requests you can submit and there is no limitation on the number of revisions you can ask for either. You will not be charged a penny extra for submitting a large number of requests or making a large number of revisions.

One thing to keep in mind – Each round of revisions is treated as a new design request and this can affect the turnaround time of other design requests you have in your queue.

We’re Only Human….

Design Cloud designers are real humans. Your designer will work through the design requests in your queue, one task at a time. Once the request at the top of your queue is complete, they will move onto the next one.

Need more design work faster?

No problem at all. It’s easy to scale your output by adding another designer to your team which will allow you to double your daily graphic design output. This can be easily done from your account dashboard or by contacting our sales team.

I have more than one business, can I use one account?

Yes you can. All of our subscription plans come with unlimited brands. This means that you can use one subscription to submit design work for multiple businesses that you may own.

Just keep in mind that your designer will only work on one active request at a time from your queue.

Do you offer a trial?

Yes we do. We offer a 14 day risk-free trial on all of our services. If you don’t like the design work we create for you in the first 14 days, we’ll keep it and you can get a full refund, no questions asked. You can read more about how the trial works on our pricing page.

What are the turnaround times?

As a rough average, Design Cloud standard users will get most design requests delivered back to them the following business day.

Turnaround times on design requests will vary and generally depend on three factors:

1. How long you and your designer have been working together.

If you’ve been working with your designer for some time, you’ll have a great workflow in place, your designer will fully understand your brand, visual identity and your preferred style. This will speed up turnaround time significantly.

If you are new to Design Cloud and you’re submitting your first task with your new designer, you’ll more than likely receive your first design back in around 1-2 business days.

2. How complex the design request is.

For example, a simple social media graphic with simple text overlayed can be very quick to turnaround, whereas something like a multi-page powerpoint presentation or detailed corporate brochure will have a lot of layers that make up the design and will take significantly longer to produce.

Our customer experience team review all requests the moment they come through to assess complexity. If there’s a complex request we think will take longer than one business day to get back to you, we’ll reach out and let you know.

3. How many requests you have in your design queue.

Your designer will work on one request at a time. If you approve the request at the top of your queue when your designer sends it back to you, we’ll jump straight onto the next one. If you delay getting back to us about revisions and sign off, this will delay the rest of your design requests being worked on.

DesignCloud PRO

One of the perks of being a Design Cloud PRO user is that you’ll get real-time communication with your designer via Slack and faster turnaround times, including same-day design delivery.

Even though the PRO plan turnaround time is quicker (especially for revisions), the number of design requests you’ll get delivered each day will still differ depending on the complexity of each request sent, how long you’ve been working with your designer and what else you have at the top of your design queue.

Are you outsourcing work to freelance sites or overseas?

Absolutely not. We don’t outsource work overseas and we don’t use freelance sites or market places. All of our designers are in-house at our office in central Manchester. The digital capital of the north.

Who owns the creative work?

You own all of the design work that we create for you. Everything we do is made specifically for you and your brand. The moment we deliver the final design files to you, you have 100% ownership. We also provide you with the Adobe layered files we used to create your work in too ie: Photoshop PSD, Illustrator AI, InDesign INDD as well as in .jpg, .pdf, or .png.

Important information around stock images.

If we need to use stock images in your work, there are some important ownership/license restrictions that you need to be aware of. You can read about these here in our terms of service.

What can you design for me?

We can design almost anything for you so long as you can explain or show us what it is you want to create. Our design scope is broad, but firmly set in graphic design (at the moment)  if you’re looking for animated 3D video, CAD design, SEO, copywriting or a sandwich. We’re not going to be able to help you…

However, we work with multiple award-winning agencies across all areas of digital and we would be to introduce you.

We can also recommend some amazing sandwich shops in Manchester too. (We love sandwiches)

Here’s our official design scope. If there’s something we’ve not mentioned on the list, get in touch and we’ll let you know if it can be done.

Can you design my logo?

If you have a clear brief or idea for your logo design including specific fonts, colours or look, sure – We can bring your idea to life and design your logo as you described it.

We are not a branding agency.

If you don’t know what you want your logo to look like and you need help to develop a brand/logo/name from scratch, then we will happily put you in touch with one of award-winning branding agency partners.

Can you design my website?

Yes we can! You’ll need to be subscribed to a Design Cloud PRO or Enterprise plan to work on web design. We’ll need your website copy already written and ready to go and you’ll need to provide us with a clear page by page brief and send us any licensed photos you want to use too.

Each website page will be designed in three standard screen sizes. Desktop, Mobile, Tablet. Each page you want us to design for your site will need to be submitted as a new request.

Web Development

Web development is not included in any of our subscription plans. We can provide you with a separate price for the development, refer you to one of our web development agency partners or you can use the designs we produce for you and work with your existing developer to build it.

We're an Agency, can we use Design Cloud?

Absolutely. We love working with agencies and would love to talk to you about how we can help you.

We work particularly well with marketing agencies who are currently outsourcing their design work to freelancers, branding agencies who want to free up their lead designers from small design tasks that create a bottleneck and any agency using non-designers to create their graphics for their own social media channels. (There’s a lot of them about)

We’re not here to replace your existing designers, we’re here to offer an affordable, low risk solution to help you design at scale.

I'm a freelancer, can I use Design Cloud?

Yes! We love helping freelancers scale up their design output.

If you have a large project that requires a heavy amount of small graphic design tasks, you can focus on the larger areas of the project and we can help you work through the small stuff and reduce the time you spend designing until the twilight hours trying to meet deadlines.
