Letterhead design

Creating functional and beautiful letterheads requires a sympathetic balance of elements and a solid knowledge of the structure of grid systems. They can have a simple, restrained beauty that any design afficionado will enjoy, and exercise a designer's core skills in typography, layout and colour.

Additionally, if you're designing for a large company, you need to ensure that your letterhead is adaptable for use by office staff and output from a laser printer.

In this tutorial I show you how to lay out an A4 letterhead, choose type sympathetic to a company's logo, and select paper stocks and print techniques. I will also demonstrate how easy it is to convert your design into a Word document for internal office use.
