Storyboard Text

  • The first stage in creating a magazine is thinking of the concept, this is where an initial idea is produced for the magazine, or if a specific theme for this issue of the magazine will be decided.
  • Evaluation Question 3 What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
  • The second stage in creating a magazine is content development, this includes both editorial and graphic development e.g. photographs, stories and illustrations. People are assigned certain stories to find out about, these are then given to editors and adjusted. Certain photographs and illustrations are selected to go with each story and a cover story/ main feature could also be selected at this time.
  • The next step in the process is design and layout, this is the job of graphic designers. Design and layout includes all editorial and graphic contents, also any advertisements that will be included in the magazine. There may be ideas developing about order of pages at this stage but it's likely no final decisions will be made until each individual page has been designed. Ads are often placed first in the magazine because companies and businesses pay for this on specific pages; editorial and graphic content are often placed after this.
  • The fourth stage in magazine production is proof production. This is when the file containing the magazine is sent to print. Once a first draft is printed, a copy of the magazine is delivered back to the editors
  • The next step is the final proof, this is when the magazine staff carefully look at each page in detail looking for errors and mistakes such as colours that don't look right or print that is difficult to read. Once the magazine has been edited and complete with the necessary changes made, the final version can be printed off.
  • The final stage in magazine production is printing and distribution, this is when the printer produces the very final version. The magazines are printed, bound and sent to various distributors such as newsstands, shops and subscribers.
