One of my weekly responsibilities at Houston’s First Baptist Church is the design of their Weekly Guide, which every member of the congregation receives as they walk in to the Sunday morning service. There are two form-factors for this particular document, the standard size is an 11″ x 8.5″ with a single-fold, and special issues are setup as a 25.5″ x 11″ tri-fold.
Issues created at the standard size are generally generic, and don’t include much variation in their scope or setup. The special issues, on the other hand, of which I’ve done 28 in the past 2 years, are all totally unique (excluding branding standards), and built to bring light to different locations around the globe in which HFBC is involved in missions.
Below are outstanding examples of each setup type.
