Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye and next steps, part of Designing a Magazine Cover.
And so the title on Designing a Magazine Cover comes to a close.…I hope it's given you some food for thought when designing your own magazine cover.…And I'd like to leave you with some resources.…In the lynda.com online training library, there are essential training titles for InDesign,…Photoshop, and Illustrator.…So if you're not comfortable with the basics of these programs, these titles are a great place to start.…Once you have mastered the basics, you might want to drill down to more specialist titles…like InDesign Secrets, InDesign FX, and my own title InDesign Typography.…
I also have a title called Designing a Magazine Layouts which complements this course.…And lastly, a couple of book recommendations, Magazine Covers by David Crowley, and 100…Years of Magazine Covers by Steve Taylor. So goodbye for now and thanks for watching.……
