Logo. It is very important and mandatory attribute for every company and especially for a magazine. Our designers will create the unique and rememberable logo for you, so your magazine will obtain inimitable style. If you already have a logo, we can improve it.

Magazine format. So far, there are a lot of formats which are different in height and width. Obviously, it is possible to place more information on a magazine page using bigger format. However, it is essential to choose magazine format taking into account not only your desires, but also printing office resources, and most importantly, your periodical’s subject. Nowadays, the most popular formats are A4 (210х297 mm) and А5 (148х210 mm).

Printed page format. It determines the margins from page border. You have to pay close attention to space elements, the so-called “blank spots”, in order to make the information in your magazine easily perceived.

Font design. The information in a magazine is being transferred visually using illustrations and printed text. The font influences on the comfort of text information perception very much. That’s why you should take the correct choice and fonts usage seriously, so your message can reach your reader.
The system of service margins, running titles and structuring elements is used to help your reader to find necessary information and bearings in your magazine.

Modular grid creation. The blocks and cross lines system is used for set-up and alignment of the elements on the printed page.

Styles creation. Our designers and DTP specialists use the most up-to- date software for magazines layout that allows developing graphic and text objects style. This provides an opportunity to create a consistent graphic style template for the whole magazine.
