Designing The Cover Page For Magazines

Mar 9, 2008
Magazines are often read by people both for information and pleasure. However, its content is very important, but equal emphasis should be paid to the designing of the front cover of the magazine. Though most of us are aware of the fact that a magazine or a book should not be judged by its cover only, but the irony is that we often end up doing the same thing. None of us really care to go through the content of the book first and then decide if it is good or bad.

Not only a magazine cover design should be attractive and reflect what lies inside it, a magazine cover should also be designed in a way so as to prompt the curiosity of the reader to look for the detail of topics that have been mentioned at the cover page. There are various key ingredients that a magazine cover should definitely include, such as masthead, dateline, main image, cover lines, bar code selling line, and many others.

All these things summarize the detail of the magazine that can be read within a few minutes and gives the reader an idea about the topics that are being dealt with in the magazine.

The likes and dislikes, range and age of the target audiences along with their preferences is an essential aspect that should be considered while designing a website, only then it will appeal to them and draw its attention. The content and the tone of the magazine should be reflected from the cover page. Adapting the way the content has been presented and your customers in consideration is the path that should be followed to design a magazine cover.

Most magazine covers that are printed features the face of celebrities who are associated with what that magazine illustrates, it may be music, fashion, fitness and health, women or any band.

A superior quality decorative style of the magazine cover along with bright colors, design and a perfect font along with an impressive graphic artwork is all that is required for a nice magazine cover design. At times, being featured on the cover page of a good magazine also serves to provide a platform to celebrities to reach pinnacle of success in their careers. A good cover design of a magazine is the one in which general ideas are conveyed effectively to readers both by the cover celebrity and the person who designs the cover of the magazine. Also, your magazine cover should reflect the aspects that make it different and stand above other magazines in competition.

There are various companies that make available the service of designing a magazine cover, but the freelancers are no less to flaunt their talent and creativity in the same field. No matter which of the two you may choose, but to have a professional to design the cover page of your magazine is a necessity. Apart from the books, Internet is a good place to find the latest magazine cover designs that you feel are right for your magazine.
