Magazine design plays a key role in creating the publication. If you are thinking of producing a magazine, you are entering a bustling market. The value of the printing industry throughout India was estimated at more than 296 billion Indians in 2019. This was expected to increase by more than 370 million rupees by 2022, which represents an annual growth rate of about one percent. You will need to keep your magazine design up to date if you want your publication to stand out.
I’m glad there are a lot of tricks you can use to give your magazine an edge and make it look really amazing. And if your design is good, it will help them stand out from the crowd.

1. Cover Design
Do not judge a book by its cover, they say. But when it comes to magazines, that's exactly what people will do.
The key to standing out from the crowd is finding a cover that draws attention to yourself. But catching attention doesn’t mean it has to be full of content colors or brash colors. A low but stylish cover can have that effect.
Most effective covers follow the same format. One main theme, one key theme usually focuses on a particular subject, and then a few subheadings. This gives an overview of important issues as well as a detailed look at what else is in this magazine.
2. Contents Page
Perhaps the most important page behind the cover is the content page. It is usually the first page that readers will turn to inside the magazine.
If you have a lot of content in your magazine, putting it all in one page will make it harder to read. There is nothing wrong with streaming your content page to two or more pages.
Most content pages usually follow the grid format but you can get a little artistic about this to make it look great. Emphasizing your solid content is a great way to give a taste of your content at a glance.
3. Be Clever with Color
Color is a surefire way to enhance your magazine stand. But you need to use it wisely.
The combination of bright, well-matched colors can make the lip lip. But with the same sign, a little use of perhaps one color can make a page look more attractive.
What you don’t want to do is just use color pollution for your own sake. Take your time choosing your palette and use color to enhance the content, rather than cutting it out.
4. Include infographics
Pictures and text are the building blocks of any magazine. But integrating them into infographics can actually give you your content.
Many pages in your magazine include pictures, text blocks, or both. A page or duplicate page that spreads this pattern through infographic will improve the reader's eye and therefore their attention.
Infographics is a great way to convey complex details of what can be a very strong text. They make ideas easy to capture and there is a whole range of styles you can use.
5. Focus on fonts
Beautiful colors and smart infographics are important, but at the end of the day, most of your magazine content will become text.
Choosing the right fonts can make a big difference in the quality of your magazine design. The important thing to remember is that your titles and body text should not be in the same font. Combining the font style of your headers, with the modern sans-serif of body text can have a very powerful effect.
The most important thing to remember is that your body text font needs to be easily readable.
6. Take Their Attention Toward Measurements
Like your cover gives an idea of what is in this magazine, pull-out quotes can be used to give a taste of what is coming in the news.
The quotation rate is taken directly from an article presented in a font much larger than body text. It may also be provided with its own page if the effect of such a statement is appropriate to the content. By selecting pull quotes that will capture the interest of the reader you can draw them on stories they have not read otherwise.
The design of your pull quotes can have a strong impact, so it’s worth putting some effort into this.
7. Always be consistent
Once you’ve found a workable style, stick to it.
There are several more than mish-mash styles within the same magazine. This means that everything from counting style to typing and background colors should follow the same style. This gives your magazine ownership and makes it easier to read.
8. Make Your Style Look Good
Choosing large fonts is important, but so make sure your text is well written.
Harmonizing your entire text with your articles is essential to giving your magazine a professional feel. If the text in one column is outside the next line, students will find it, yes humbly. It makes your magazine look unsuccessful, and it is very easy to fix.
Skipping a lot of text in a small space is a surefire way to kill students. Remember that reading is the key.
9. Use White Site
While content is obviously the most important thing on the page, it needs space to breathe.
Try not to be distracted by the desire to fill all the pages from top to bottom. Leaving a white space not only makes your design look stylish but also helps to attract attention to the content you want your readers to focus on. Too much going on would be an exit.
