Services

Not only am I a magazine designer, but I also design brochures, catalogues and books. The processes for all these types of publications is fairly similar. To help you I provide two main types of service – a full art production service for those who need the magazine designed from start to finish, and a template design service for those who would rather set the magazine themselves but prefer to leave the template design to someone like myself.

Magazine Design Pages and Cover

FULL ART PRODUCTION

The all-in-one solution when you need a magazine designer to complete the publication for you from initial template design right through to print-ready PDF.

Working closely with you for your project I can assist with the initial concept right through to delivering the final document to your chosen printer. If you already have templates that you want me to use I can go from there, otherwise we can work on putting together original designs for your project.

Usually the client provides a flat plan for their project although I can advise with this if needed. Working from this I will compose each page using the latest version of Adobe InDesign CC for Windows. Copy is usually delivered to me as Word documents along with any imagery. For additional costs I can also help source stock images if necessary. I also use Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC as needed. I will communicate with you regularly through the project and provide frequent proofs for your approval. This will also give you the opportunity to submit any amendments whether for grammar or design.

The completed project is saved as a high-resolution PDF intended for print and ready to be submitted to your chosen printers.

BESPOKE TEMPLATE DESIGN

For when you don’t need the full service of a magazine designer but would still like a fresh magazine template to get you started.

Following our consultation I am able to provide you with a bespoke magazine template for your project. This will give you the foundations to get you started with your publication in the form of an InDesign template. From there the placement of the magazine content is in your hands.

Templates are created using InDesign CC – however I can make sure they are backwards compatible with older versions of InDesign if needed. InDesign templates can be used for both Windows and Mac simultaneously.

The template will consist of master and sample pages for each section of the publication. This will give you an idea of placement and so on. If needed I can also provide royalty-free fonts to use or premium fonts at an extra charge. Everything you need to get started will be packaged together. Following payment the template is yours to keep and use as many times as you like.
