We recently produced a high-end corporate brochure for Universe Holdings, a renowned real estate investment company based in Century City. They found Clear Print while looking online for commercial printers in the Los Angeles area. Here are the striking before and after results of our Photoshop enhancements.

Our client hired their own designer (Elizabeth Kempf of Gush Bottega) who did an excellent job on the creative design. They also hired their own photographer.

It’s an album style brochure, measuring 9 x 12 with a glued pocket on the inside back cover. The graphic design features metallic silver foil on the outside front and back cover which is made of dark blue linen cover stock. Inside there’s a vellum fly sheet, plus several pages featuring glossy photos of their properties.

Once we made the high-resolution color proofs it became apparent many of the photos could use some improvement. Our expert Photoshop artist worked miracles and the end result was a brochure of which the client, designer and all of us are very proud! Please take a look at some of the before and after photos:
