Hi! I'm Nigel French and this is Designing a Magazine Layout. As a graphic designer as well as an Adobe Certified Trainer and Instructor, I'm looking forward to showing you to how to use design and production techniques in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Bridge CS4 to create successful magazine layouts. We'll start by identifying the common parts of a magazine feature article. From there we'll establish efficient workflow practices using paragraph, character and object styles.
We'll look at the aesthetics of choosing and combining typefaces and the integration of text with images. When we are happy with our layout, we'll preflight our document and create a print-ready PDF. The techniques I'll be demonstrating will save you a lot of time, give you greater flexibility and make your designs more stylish. Let's take the first step toward that with Designing Magazine Layout.
