Whether you have a large or small readership, applying creative and stylish designs to your magazine layouts help captivate the audience, keeps things interesting and engage your readers.
Toast’s designers have worked on all types of magazines, helping to increase readership and advertising revenue. We work with small and large organisations, helping to modernise and inject some style back into publications.
Planning and putting together a magazine is a huge task, so the last thing you need is to be let down on the magazine design.
Our experience in designing magazines helps the editors and editorial teams we work with ensure the design stage of the project goes smoothly.
We’ll work with you across every stage of the project – from initial flat plans to collating copy and images – our design team has the experience you need to create awesome creative and fully understand the magazine design process.
There are two main ways that magazine projects generally progress. The first is where our clients collate everything for the publication first and then supply it all in one go. The second is where content comes over as-and-when it’s ready.
We’re happy to work either way on magazine design projects, but we always insist on Basecamp for managing all the project files and communication.
As the print deadline approaches there are always a few articles to chase and advert artwork that’s overdue – making use of Basecamps messages and most importantly the to-do items means that everyone involved in the project knows exactly where everything is.
Having a trusted process is one thing, but if your magazine lacks a professional design it won’t be in print for long.
Our designers can work on a per-spread basis, designing each article as the content comes over, or we can help you to plan the look and feel of your magazine design before the first issue.
Creating a style guide specifically for your publication means whatever magazine designers you use, they have a clear guide to the layout – from grids to colours and fonts.
