I design layouts for print and online publications - including magazines, books, brochures and catalogues, newsletters, adverts and so on.
Working closely with you for your project I can assist with the initial concept right through to delivering the final document to your chosen printer. If you already have templates that you want me to use I can go from there, otherwise we can work on putting together original designs for your project.
Usually the client provides a flat plan for their project although I can advise with this if needed. Working from this I will compose each page using the latest version of Adobe InDesign CC for Windows. Copy is usually delivered to me as Word documents along with any imagery. For additional costs I can also help source stock images if necessary. I also use Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC as needed. I will communicate with you regularly through the project and provide frequent proofs for your approval. This will also give you the opportunity to submit any amendments whether for grammar or design.
The completed project is saved as a high-resolution PDF intended for print and ready to be submitted to your chosen printers. I've also worked on digital projects that are saved for digital distribution rather than print.
If you are only needing a template to work with I can provide you with a bespoke layout template suitable for your project. Templates will be made using InDesign CC however I can make sure they are backwards compatible with whichever version of InDesign you are using. InDesign templates can be used in Windows or Mac.
Following your design brief I will put together master and sample pages for each section of the publication. I can provide royalty-free fonts to use or premium fonts at an extra charge. Everything you need to get started will be packaged together. Following payment the template is yours to use as many times as you like.
