While designing any project can be time consuming and difficult, magazine printing projects are probably some of the most difficult to design due to the complexity of the task. Covers, tables of content, articles, graphics, and advertisements all have to be layed out and designed in a visually appealing way. Today’s readers are very sophisticated and demand visually appealing reading material. It is no longer good enough to simply have great content. That content needs to be arranged in a way that attracts your readers’ attention and makes them want to read your great content (and come back for more in the future).
However, many of our clients find themselves designing their magazines on a shoe string budget and simply don’t have the funds to hire a professional to design their magazine printing project. If you find yourself in that situation, don’t despair.
