Magazine editorial design
The design and feel of your magazine is as important as your content. Raspberry Jam Creative has the experience and flair to create stunning layouts and page designs that make your magazine stand out from the rest.
An individual look, whether it be for a low-key B2B title or a stunning photography publication, we can design it to suit your audience, your pocket, or your client’s specification.
Raspberry Jam Creative’s team will design a bespoke template from scratch for your new publication, including fonts, styles and image use, revamp your old template or build up ideas from your favourite publications.
We can manage the full magazine production process for you, from the design of the template to layout and print each month – or as frequently as you want to publish your magazine!
Raspberry Jam Creative can help with the planning of each issue, using a digital flat planning tool – MagManager – to keep track of pages, as well as designing advertising (display and classified formats) and chasing advertising copy as required.
Adverts are the bread and butter of publishing and eye-catching advertising design is essential to give good return on investment to those who support your publication by paying to advertise.
Raspberry Jam Creative’s flat-rate page design fee includes a free advert design and copy chasing service so if a client hasn’t got advertising copy ready or doesn’t have access to a graphic design studio, we’ll do it for you. All included in the quoted price.
Putting together the classified and recruitment sections for some magazines can be a painstaking and arduous job; we’ll take it out of your hands and design and layout these sections as well as your editorial pages.
Advertising copy chasing
Many print magazines will focus on commissioning and writing great editorial copy and images, but to support the cost of publishing advertising is also essential. Your adverts will be cleverly woven between your editorial pages and potentially as a separate classified or recruitment section at the back of the publication.
Here at Raspberry Jam Creative we spend as much care and attention on designing and laying out your advertising copy as we do on the rest of the publication. Advertisers want a good return on their investment and readers want to see relevant products for sale so spending time getting the right combination is key.
Our team can chase advertisers for you to get the copy, all to a pre-planned schedule, which will leave you to concentrate on the tricky bit of selling your valuable advertising space. We will liaise with you before each print issue, establish which companies need to be chased and whether any advertising design services are required by your clients.
