Designing a magazine is no simple task. In this free course, you’ll discover ten fantastic magazine design tips to breathe life into your next print design:

1. Don’t be shy with your cover designs—get inspired by magazine cover ideas that use bold, punchy typography and photos to grab attention and sell the magazine to a casual browser.
2. Use a single pop of color—this is a stylish, subtle way of drawing attention and looks great for sports and tech magazines.
3. Spend time perfecting your contents page—as the gateway to the rest of your magazine, make sure to give the contents your full attention.
4. Make your title unique with custom illustrations—whether vector or hand-drawn, illustrated graphics can stand out in a sea of photographic magazines.
5. Bring digital style to print with infographics—a simple, effective way aesthetically pleasing magazines handle breaking up text-heavy articles.
6. Choose minimal layout styles for fashion and lifestyle titles—simple styles help trendy subject matter shine through great magazine spread design.
7. Choose typography appropriately—the right typeface can give particular personality to your magazine.
8. Make photos the main focus—beautiful photography should take up at least two-thirds of your magazine; be sure to print it on gloss-coated paper to make the most of stunning pictures.
9. Create a style theme and stick to it—apply consistent elements, such as color, shape and typography, throughout your whole magazine, to make it look super-professional.
10. Think in spreads, not pages—design your magazine in two-page doses and allow content to spread across the spine, to create an immersive design.
