Magazine design is a complicated process. A culmination of reporting, writing, photography and design goes into designing one spread. Once the spread is designed, it still has to be assembled into the rest of the magazine, printed and distributed.

This website will teach you about the design portion. Once the reporting and photography is done, the designer manipulates the content and creates something visually appealing.

Designers do this using a combination of InDesign and Photoshop. This website will provide you with tutorials to both, along with a walkthrough of creating a layout and some key concepts about good design.
