Magazine layout 101

I've worked in most areas of graphic design at some point: small agencies with big clients; big agencies with boring clients; print-based; web-based. I freelanced for a few years in search of somewhere to settle down. I've always loved magazines and, despite a lot of designers berating the lack of creativity involved in making a magazine, I've found it one of the most consistently entertaining areas of design to work in.

Working with a close team who find new, exciting stories to cover, and laying out interesting content to show your readers, is exciting. The monthly build-up to press day and the satisfaction of seeing the end result on the shelf are the reasons I settled in this field of design. The biggest thrill is knowing that people choose to buy the product you're making.
