This is my first post on Typophile, so i’m not sure whether this is best placed as a Forum Topic or Blog for help, but here goes: I have been asked to create a folded leaflet for NHS Employability. It will be a 6 page DL (flat size A4 - folded twice to DL).
I have created 3 colums with 4mm gutters. Type will be Frutiger - 14pt for headings and 11pt for body copy - there is a 2pt leading for the body copy and all text is aligned to the baseline grid.
I was wondering if these measurements would be suitable for a leaflet like this - as it is the first time I have used InDesign and the first time I have created something for print. If anyone could offer any advice with the measurements or suggest alternative fonts to have the best impact in this medium, I would be extremely grateful.
