Introduction to Magazine Design

September 18 @ 10:00 AM October 29 @ 11:59 PM America/New York

Discover principles and tips to design an engaging publication that entices readers and communicates the magazine’s mission. During this six-week course, Lea Greene, publication content manager and designer for SACONNECTS, and James Njoroge, art director of Timazi, will discuss how to design a magazine that draws your readers’ attention and makes a visual impact.

You’ll learn how the principles of legibility, hierarchy, contrast, consistency, and appropriateness influence the design of your publication. You’ll learn how a strategic plan to combine words and images will create a sense of purpose in each spread and how to evaluate your designs to see if a redesign is needed.

This course is the third and final in an online series in which you will gain an overview of magazine publishing, including a basic understanding of the elements of magazine business, editing, and design. The series will include an online course in each of these three main areas. You may choose to take one, two, or all three of the segments.

Those who complete each course will receive a certificate of completion for that course, but those who complete all three will receive a certificate of completion for the entire series.

Course topics include:

  • Typography
  • Words and images
  • Designing the spread
  • Designing the magazine cover
  • Photography for publication
  • Magazine redesign
