As magazine designers, our prime role is to understand your brand: who you are, what you do, and who you do it for. Our magazine design service helps you find your audience, engage with them, and turn casual consumers into dedicated brand evangelists. Whatever you sell and whoever you deal it to, your journey to the heart of your audience begins here.
In the world of graphic design, magazines are numbered among the most time-sensitive projects. Artwork and content have led in times that require compelling future issues to be locked down months before production. And that’s not the only way in which time affects your finished product. In a world full of images, you’ve got less than 10 seconds to make an impact – with a magazine cover, with the layout of an article, with the contents page. Our magazine designs place images and text in groups (called “blocks” in the industry), so when your reader’s eye scans the layout, he or she gets the context, the theme and the hook straight away. From sector to subject to subject, we ensure your content is saying everything loud and clear.
Every industry has a different language. That’s true for visual representation and the words you use. Our magazine designs use the visual cues most appropriate to your market – brilliant bullet points and fact lists for educational supplements, extensive colour spreads for fashion magazines, and clean, clear layouts for graphic design magazines. The structure of every page is vital. Features and key pieces are given the design cues they need to stand out: big double-page spreads, arresting photos and colourful inserts. Professional details, industry journals and reviews are kept plain and simple. By talking to your audience in layout as well as words, our magazine designs reinforce your professionalism, your relevance and your authority.
Great magazine designs start with a cover that grabs your audience’s attention. From killer mastheads to arresting images, everything your target reader sees should make him or her want to know more. Our magazine designs start with an in-depth understanding of your product, your purpose, your industry and your readership. The images, the layout and the font are designed to appeal to the people who want what you sell or are interested in reading what you have to say. You’ll get multiple cover options to choose from, too, so you can split test for the best effect or choose the layout that most accurately reflects the design you see in your head.
The proper layout gives your stories room to breathe. When we graphic design magazines, we develop a series of layout template options for client brands based on the audience that’s going to be reading the content and the brands themselves. Our designs are created to appeal to a readership that increasingly gets its content on a screen and a page – clean, simple and elegant, with images that can be resized or cropped for reading on a mobile phone or tablet. We can also advise on the content itself: if you need help tweaking your headline for the perfect turn of phrase or outlining the thrust of your article or advertisement in a few well-chosen words, our content writers will do it all for you.
10 Key Elements of a Magazine Layout Design
Graphic design magazines are created using several essential skills – layout, imaging and, of course, typography. For both the cover and internal content of your magazines, typography is probably the most necessary and skilled element. It all starts with font selection. As magazine designers, we must choose the font that works for your layout, your cover, and your article – a font that outlines the personality of your brand, adheres to the design brief for the magazine as a whole and is readable. We work with a vast library of fonts, which we have collected and collated over the years – and like any perfectionist, we spend hours agonising over which typeface precisely represents the character and content of your design!
As magazine designers, we are often asked to work with existing design teams, content creators and editors. We can fit with your budget, hierarchy and lead in times – look at the endorsements we have received from editors and publishers on the magazines we work with already. We can work for you remotely or, if you prefer, come into your offices and work directly alongside the other designers and contributors for your publication.
Once you have signed off on your magazine design and paid the invoice balance, all copyright for images, layout designs, and the content will be passed to you; we supply a detailed set of design guidelines with every masthead and layout design so you can use them for future issues without diluting the effect of the design or the personality of your brand. All images and drawings are delivered to you as a package folder so you can reproduce them in any place and to any size. By following the design guidelines we have supplied, you’ll be sure that your magazine’s impact remains strong in all of your print collateral, online content and advertising too.
There are three types of magazines: Consumer Magazines, Trade Magazines, and Organization Magazines. Each magazine type has various popular subsections and genres. All magazine designs have their own language – bold images, severe layouts and challenging fonts. Magazine designs are created in close consultation with you, the client. We start with a detailed brief and a meeting to define the statement you want to make. Then we supply a selection of cover designs and layouts for you to choose from. Once you’re happy we’ve arrived at a look and feel that gets the attention of our target audience, we start work on the finished design. Proofs are submitted for your approval, and any changes you would like us to make are done at this stage. The finished design and layout are then signed over to you, along with all files and documents created during the project. We can work with existing corporate logos and fonts to create a masthead and overall look that works with your current branding – or develop a brand for you alongside the magazine.
Consumer magazines include both general and speciality magazines containing news, business, fashion, celebrity life and entertainment information. Types of consumer magazines: News and general interest Magazines, Cooking & Health Magazines, Fashion & Cultural Magazines, Technology Magazines, Children’s Magazines, Business Magazines, Travel Magazines, Automotive Magazines, Pet Magazines, and Sports & Entertainment.
Trade magazines are articles published within a particular industry. The purpose of these articles is to provide industry members with the latest practices, methods, techniques and other relevant information. Their goals are similar to those of scientific and academic journals. Trade publications typically contain industry-related advertisements. They have sometimes been labelled as trade journals or trade newspapers.
The organization magazines have three categories: Society, advertising/promotional, and custom/product. Society Magazines are designed as a communication vehicle to keep readers informed about important policies and changes and to bring people together. Advertising magazines are PR tools for certain organizations. These magazines are usually free and designed with a specific goal or agenda in mind. Product magazines are typically delivered after purchase or to promote a particular product. An example of this is a home product magazine with branded content.
