To design a simple brochure for your company, you don't need to use expensive layout software. Office for Mac includes Microsoft Word software, which provides rich support for developing content. The templates in Word provide simple designs with maximum printing compatibility. Creating your brochure in Microsoft Word for Mac also makes many different templates available for your use, ensuring a look for your brochure that best captures what you need to convey.
Open Microsoft Word.
From the Standard toolbar, click the "New from template" button.
Under Templates, select either "All" or "My Templates." Highlight the template to use, and then click "Choose." If you are online, click the "Online templates" option and select from the list of displayed options.
Type in the information for your brochure, such as basic product information, graphics and business contact information. The template guides you through the correct placement of these elements.
Delete any design elements from the template that you don't want on your finished brochure.
Select "Views," and then "Publishing Layout" to manage the brochure layout and design. In this view, use the toolbar to reorganize your brochure, change overlapping of graphics and text, for example, and use a larger font library to differentiate your text.
Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Spelling and Grammar..." to check for obvious spelling and grammar mistakes. Go to the "File" menu and select "Save" to save your brochure.
Print your brochure to copy it, or download it to a professional printing vendor.
