Key to this process is having a clear knowledge of what your publication will be and who you're targeting it at.

This tutorial provides a basic insight into the process of developing a publication, highlighting key points during the design process that'll help you to develop a newspaper or magazine from the initial concept through to the finished product. I'll cover the thought process, workflow and some important aspects to consider when designing for print. We'll be using InDesign, with a minor step into Photoshop to prepare the images for print.
