Magazine Cover Design

How have magazine covers changed with the passing of time ?

early magazines 1900
Early magazines - 1900

Are these covers colourful ?

No – Colour printing as we now know it wasn’t available until the 1950s

Are these covers intersting ?

No – The people that bought them were wealthy and wanted the new magazines that became available. Only since the 1960s have magazines really fought to get their market

The 1920s and 1930s Magazines become stylish.There is nothing to say what is inside the magazine. The covers were ‘posters’ for the magazine itself
mixing lettering and images
Mixing Lettering and Images
  • Some magazines did mix images and lettering – even in the 1920s and 1930s. This is the style we see most of all today
recent magazines now need to tell everyone what is inside

Masthead The name of the magazine displayed in the typeface in which it is designed. This is the visual branding of the title and is usually done in a unique typeface to be very recognisable
  • Dateline Month and year of publication, often with the price. Note that a monthly magazine usually hits the news-stands the month before the cover date
  • Main image In the case of this cover there is a single image of the model Shania.

It is used in a classic way, the face is big enough to make an impact on the news-stand, with the model making full eye-contact

  • Coverlines This magazine uses a lot of cover lines, which are distributed around the main image without detracting from it too much
  • Main cover line This is very large - taking up about a quarter of the cover area - and comes in three layers, each with a different colour.
  • The title must be easily recognisable in a display of dozens of competitors.

The start of the masthead is important here

  • Bar code Standard barcode used by retailers
  • Selling line Short, sharp description of the title's main marketing point
