more on brochures
Just like any kind of brochure for a business, an artists brochure must include the same type of information. You want a little bit about anything important, but not too much. Make them want to see more. The main idea is to write something about yourself or your inspiration – perhaps your artists statement, some photos of your work, a small black and white head shot of yourself (a professional one is good unless you know someone who can do a professional job – my daughter took mine and I’m very happy with it), a website address, and of course your contact information. If you can design this yourself you might want to ‘google’ brochures or tri-fold brochures and find some samples done in Word that you can use as a template. If you can’t do this yourself, get some recommendations from a college or from other artists and see if you can find someone who is good and can do it for a price you can afford. In office supply stores you can find special paper now made for tri-fold brochures.
