  • Effective Magazine Design Books

    OK So I'm in the process of creating a magazine and I really want a design book specifically focused on how to effectively create a solid magazine design. I've found a few I hope some of you can comment on and maybe add a couple you find useful to learn the basics from.

    Chris -

    I moved away from publication designing quite about 20 years ago - so, I'm not that familiar with books on the topic. The "design that works" series from Rockport is usually pretty good and provides a good overview. I know that Graphis has published a magazine design annual in the past. There are some decent books out there on "page design" and "page layout." Maybe an Amazon or Google search will help you there. You might check out the resources of the Society of Publication Designers. I know they print an annual. Their site may suggest some other sources of information.

      Thanks for the feedback! I'll play with ways to differentiate DC from hue (hyphenation, perhaps?).

      I am about to graduate college in December and I won't be able to use a lot of the resources that my school has, such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

      Yeah you're right. Think it might have to do with me being lazy and bad at logo design. Just wanted to do something easy, simple and that looks good.

      Funny how you mention you didn't want it to read D-Chew cuz that is exactly what I got from it. More so with the first than the second.

      I sort of rather favor the second one anyway. It has...
