Good brochure design is whatever you want it to be. Whether you want your company brochure to give the impression of your business being fresh and original, classic and firmly established, or friendly and informal, a good brochure and graphic design agency will understand your needs. The corporate brochure is often one of the most important pieces of company literature you will require as they are a direct communication between your company and your target customers, and the design and content can give a strong and effective impression of your business if made creatively and with your business in mind. The following are some areas you may want to consider when commissioning a brochure design agency to create your marketing literature.

You clearly will have intentions of hiring the most effective graphic design agency available to you, but what is often overlooked is the fact that your brief is what can make or break a brochure design. Put thought into how you want your business to be conveyed through the literature, and explain your values and objectives to your designer. A brochure design agency is unable to market your business effectively without an understanding of your intention. Once they understand this, the graphic designers will be able to begin suggesting design aspects which will project your business effectively.

You may also want to consider some choices in your design for yourself and suggest these to your brochure design agency too. Think about the material which the brochure will be printed on. Obviously these depend on the size of the brochure and your budget; but bear in mind that the quality and weighting of the paper and cardboard will give a huge impression of your company. A gloss finished cover will add a classic quality, whereas a high quality matt finish will look more contemporary. If you are hoping to convey an image of luxury and class, never settle for thin, glossy, low quality pages inside the brochure, and opt for less pages of a higher quality if your budget is stretched.

Colours are also key in brochure design. A colour scheme says a great deal about your company, and it is likely you have already considered these when creating other marketing literature and a logo. Ensure that your brochure is an extension of your existing brand, matching the colour and design style of existing materials. Give you brochure graphic design company a copy of your existing materials if you want to continue their existing themes. If you are looking for a complete rebrand however, consider an agency which works in a combination of branding and logo and brochure design.
