You want these brochures to be authentic, practical, usable in the future,
and part of your portfolio. So aim for "professional quality."

much information. You don't want to overpower the reader. But you want enough
information to demonstrate that you have a good understanding of the topic and
your target audience.

MS-Publisher, etc. If you use a word processor your paper size would be

landscape (not portrait). Set up three columns to align with your folds.
