In order to survive in a fiercely competitive environment, news and magazine businesses need to differentiate their services from those of their competitors while operating under strict budgets. One way to utilize your resources effectively is to concentrate on the core and heart of your magazine's details, and outsourcing some of the less critical tasks to reliable and affordable partners.
One function that can be easily outsourced is magazine layout editing, which we provide here at Flatworld Solutions.

Magazine Layout Services - Key Elements
Flatworld believes in combining design and technical quality. We know that the keys to an effective magazine layout involves a combination of:
Layout designers have to have an artistic knowledge in addition to a technical knowledge, to be able to visualize the entire project at both a micro and macro level. That is why we blend all of the most important elements of magazine layout, including:
Illustration - We look at colors, photos, image editing and more that add to the design and provide an illustration that best suits the content of the page
Photography - We can both provide photography and utilize pre-existing photos to add character and visual appearance to the articles
Typography - We can create custom fonts, or make sure that we're using a font, size, and style that captures attention without distracting from the rest of the layout
Content / Text - We can provide our own content as needed, with trained writers and editors that understand what text needs to be on the page to get noticed
Grid Work - We can set up each page so that it captures attention, with both symmetrical and asymmetrical grids that complement the magazine's personality
White Space - We'll make sure to examine the total amount of white space, fill what we need to, and create white space effectively to draw attention where applicable
Our designers use all of the latest technologies to edit layout and images, including Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite, Adobe Photoshop CC, CorelDRAW, and QuarkXPress, and we make sure that each and every designer is trained with the newest updates to ensure they are able to complete your layout editing project effectively.
