This diploma thesis describes the preparation of a product catalogue. The preparation of a catalogue demands not only the layout of the text and photo on the pages but also work with appropriate software tools, knowledge of colour theories and print. Final version of the product catalogue will be printed and thus has to be prepared properly. The life cycle of such project covers several stages, from planning to final product. All stages are presented from a theoretical and practical standpoint.
I made a product catalogue for a company that manufactures lighting systems. I work for the company as an external associate in the field of graphic design. In this particular case the company needed product catalogues to be designed for print and web use.
The diploma thesis presents the life cycle of a catalogue and also the use of Adobe InDesign software for the purpose of creating the final product. During the process, we create many prototypes which undergo various improvements.
