LA Print Preparation

  • Design a simple dummy for at least 10- at most 20-page magazine style brochure combining dynamic typography and photography. You can use placeholder text for body copy. For your magazine, use a spot varnish for the cover and design it using two spot colours.
  • Make use of your checklist that you designed and prepare the file for print.
  • Decide what paper weight and type you will use. 
  • Decide what type of binding you will use, for example, saddle stich, perfect bind, etc. (See the printing terms link.)
  • Submit the print-ready file packaged from InDesign as well as a print-ready PDF.

This exercise was really fun, but I’m a little unsure if I made everything right consider print preparation. I decided to make an added booklet to a fake magazine called Fitspiration. The thought was that when you bought the magazine you got this with you as an extra, and it’s a booklet on how to get ready for the marathon. For the placeholder body copy text I used texts from this article and the credit goes to the author and website. screenshot_114screenshot_115screenshot_116screenshot_117screenshot_118screenshot_119screenshot_120screenshot_121

I did make a zip of the packaged InDesign files but I couldn’t upload the zip to WordPress.
