Your teacher may have given you more specific instructions. Normally, brochures are brief but informative, with many pictures illustrating the positive benefits of a good or service. Try to pick something with which you are familiar. Many brochures also have catchy slogans that appear on both the first and last pages of the pamphlet. In the middle of the brochure, there is typically information that helps to convince the reader about the benefits of the product or point of view being expressed.

You could do a brochure about your school. Make a list of things you like about your school. You could look at extracurricular activities, the friendliness of the students, or the great faculty. Next, write more on these reasons. Include testimonials from other people associated with your school that describe it as a great place to be. You may even use statistics, such as the winning record of a certain school team. Finally, create a catchy slogan or quip that will make people open your brochure and read more about your school. As always, make sure your topic is acceptable to your teacher.

In general, a brochure advertises a specific type of product or service. The more familiar you are with the product or service, the easier it will be for you to create a brochure that communicates well with potential customers.

One subject to choose might be a service that you or one of your siblings might actually offer such as babysitting or lawn mowing. Because this is something you do yourself, you can speak from knowledge and have easy access to the following standard elements in brochure design:

  • What services you provide
  • Prices
  • Testimonials from clients
  • Why you are the best choice
  • Photos (perhaps before and after lawns)
  • Details about the task

Another easy type of brochure would be one for a restaurant or pizza place, which might include testimonials, address, contact information, hours, a map of delivery areas, and a menu. In general, small local retail outlets make good subjects as it is fairly obvious what information customers would want to know.
