Right now I’m doing an art direction project for a magazine. When I finish generating some ideas,sketches and visual designs, I like to start mockup all my magazine design. It can be smaller than the original just to see a real touch and feeling when you flipping from page to page. So, If you’re designing about publishing media whether it’s a poster, leaflet or magazine, you should mockup first to see the font size, color or layout before you start printing in real size. It’ll help you reduce the cost if you want to fix or adjust some of your design first.
