Photography and Adobe Photoshop support for magazine design
We can arrange photo shoots, stock photography or work with your supplied photographs. We can use Adobe Photoshop to correct and retouch images on your request. We carefully adjust the photographs, modifying them using layers to adjust brightness/contrast, colour balance and more. We can deep etch, air brush and montage to get the perfect finished design ready for print. It is extremely important to have high quality images for use in any magazine design as without them the finesse we like to achieve is just not possible. We do however always work with you suggesting alternatives to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for your finished magazine design.
We can do as much of the content creation as you would like us to. Our editorial team can suggest and produce content from scratch, work with your outline or draft and polish to perfection, or we can take your copy as supplied ready for insertion into our magazine design.

Always judge a book - or magazine - by it’s cover
The magazine format itself if a romantic and traditional medium, and we design each magazine with the intent of it being something quite special that can be kept as a keepsake, or souvenir, or to be showcased on a coffee table. The cover design is quite possibly the one most important element of the magazine. It is vitally essential to consider the environment in which the magazine will be used or first seen to achieve a successful magazine cover design. For example, on the newsstand an engaging image and cover line combo might convince someone to purchase the magazine however for a magazine delivered in the letterbox, something that achieves that high quality look will be the defining factor that might save it from a swift transition to the recycling bin. Either way the cover must also be representative of what is on the inside.
