Middle

For the word 'Jane' I used text size 22 and the font Bradley Hand, as I did on the business cards. It was placed in a black box in the top left hand corner. The text was white to make it stand out. The address was placed next to the black box at the top in a line font size 8. I put them there as it needs to be noticed easily so the reader can see where it's from and also so they can return a letter to that address. The phone and fax numbers are in a line in the centre at the bottom of the page. This is because they are the last things you need to know in case you need to ring concerning the letter. Overall I am unpleased with this letterhead because it looks tacky and unprofessional. It doesn't give the right image for a hairdresser, as it isn't smooth enough. The address looks a bit lost at the top and would look better in some sort of box. I am going to completely redo the layout for the next letterhead. LETTERHEAD 2 I have completely reworked the layout for this letterhead as I thought the last one did not give the right effect. I decided to add some colour to this letterhead, as the last one was black and white, and looked very boring. I added a yellow margin on the left hand side of the letterhead as I thought it would give a more professional look. This idea worked very well although I'm not sure about the colour. The yellow border contrasted with an orange strip, which ran along the top of the letterhead. This idea was also very successful although the colour needs rethinking. The word 'Jane' remained in the top left hand corner, in the same size and font, as this needs to be noticed easily. ...read more.

Conclusion

ANALYSIS OF THE APPLICATION FORM To do this task I have redesigned the current application form, as it is not very good. It looks very old and messy. I am going to give it a more modern look and make it more interesting. The original application form got strait to the point and didn't have an introduction. I decided to do the same, as I didn't think it would be relevant. I have put the information into different sections so it is structured well. All the information is in a table as I thought this would be the best format because it looks neat. I printed off the application form and analysed it. I then changed what needed changing and printed off my final copy. These can be seen on the next page. ANALYSING THE COMPANY BOOKLET As Jane is a hairdresser I decided to do a booklet on one her main hair styling suppliers 'Sebastian Collection'. I thought this could give people who use her salon an idea of what styles they could have and would encourage people to buy. I used various websites to find pictures of the different gels and styles. I also got some useful information about them and about the company. I decided to use A4 as this seemed to be the most practical paper size. I wanted to keep the design simple like the other documents I have done. I haven't put in any pointless detail as it gives a fresh approach to the people reading the booklet. I wanted it to be similar to the other documents so I used the same font, 'Bradley Hand ICT'. This gave a professional image as it has uniformity. I included a contents page to add good navigation to the booklet. This could take away a lot of stress, as it is easy to find everything. I printed off the company booklet and analysed it. I then changed what needed changing and printed off my final copy. These can be seen on the next page. ...read more.
