Today we are talking about Inspiring Editorial Designs from all over the world and about the importance of delivering information with style. But before we move to that part, let’s answer a few essential questions:
Do people still buy magazines these days? If they do, why and what type of magazines do they read?
The difference between reading news on the internet and from an actual magazine is major. Firstly, the internet provides you with plenty of articles and news. It would take way too long to sieve the information that is not faithful to the reality from that that speaks the truth. There are plenty of articles that not always provide you intentionally or unintentionally with the most accurate information. Of course, if you have already subscribed to blogs you know for sure they deliver real news and information, that should not change.
We live in an era where information is THE keyword. We are surrounded by information at every step. But how do you choose our source of information? What are the criteria?
When it comes to magazines, find out which are the ones with authority on the subject you are interested in. Find out what magazines the greatest designers read and give them a try. I’m sure you’ll find a ton of great information.
Another reason people choose magazines over virtual articles is due to the experience they deliver. Some people simply prefer flipping through the pages rather than clicking or scrolling down on a device. When it comes to choosing between a magazine over a book when taking a public transit, some people prefer magazines. They find it easier to focus on a short article until they finish it rather than a whole chapter.
Taking these arguments into consideration, I personally believe that magazines’ life is not over yet. Hence people seek for the best quality-price ratio, why not try to satisfy them? Whether you are a graphic designer, a photographer or simply in search for inspiration, you have come to the right place! We discussed the importance of real and reliable articles, but that’s not enough in order for a person to choose a magazine. Each article has to feature relevant, eye-catching images. You can either screw up an entire article with your images and text combination or make it a best-seller.
