Smaller cover designs

Smaller covers are created for various brochures and information pieces.

All college-wide cover designs should be image dominant. The primary wordmark and tagline should be large and in most cases near the top of the piece.

The disc should be positioned at the left side of the piece, in the center vertically, and fill approximately 1/5 the height of the entire piece.

The example here is a smaller piece, measuring 4 1/2" x 7" and the disc is 1" high.
