What are the essential elements
of a magazine cover?

One of the most profitable and attractive cover designs of all times, the magazine cover design takes a lot of effort to maximize engagement. They need to catch the eyes within a few microseconds and end up in the hands of the potential buyer. From highlighting the headlines to featuring the cover image, it takes both time and patience to design an exclusive magazine cover. It should also include the title, tagline, logo, publisher details, and the price to help the buyers reach a decision faster. It should also have the UPS code published on the cover to improve authenticity.

“Working with DesignBro was a great experience from start to finish.”

“Setting the project up was simple with clear steps and the results were amazing. We could not be happier with our new logo and will be proudly using it on our website and full product range.

Why do I need an iconic magazine cover design?

The cover is all the magazine has to attract buyers. Then contents of the magazine may provide information to the buyers, but it is the cover that makes them their own. If you are attracted to a magazine cover, you may be enticed by a lot of factors, like color, graphics, images, etc. But what catches your eyes the most is the careful amalgamation of colors and graphics that helps strike a chord with your cognizance. Get in touch with professional magazine cover designers to come up with a design through careful utilization of all the elements.

Question? Check our FAQ

A design contest is a contest between designers to create the winning design for your creative brief. After you’ll write a creative brief (which we will help you with), you’ll pay, start your contest and designers will decide to participate and submit their design(s). Designers can’t see each others’ submissions.
You’ll give feedback to submitted designs and select up to 3 finalists. The finalists then update their designs and compete to win. You’ll pick a winner and receive the design files as well as full copyright to the winning design.
With most magazin cover design projects, we see that the client starts to receive the first designs within 24 hours.
The duration of the project depends a little on how quickly you decide which designs you select.The maximum duration of a project for each stage is: Selecting 3 Finalist designs – max 10 days; Selecting the Winning Design – max 5 days; Receiving final design files – max 3 days. On average, however, we notice that most projects are completely finalized within 12 days. Check our tips & tricks page to find out more about the full timing & process.
Yes! We believe we can serve both clients and designers best when we only work with top quality designers. We vet designer work before we allow a designer to join a contest. Designers have to show their previous work, and our vetting committee, comprising of industry experts, reviews each of these portfolios. On average, just 5% of applicants make the cut.
Yes! Actually, you are encouraged to do so. You will have a direct chat with all logo designers working on your project. You will be able to ask them to make changes & ask questions in general. Not sure how to give great feedback? Read our article here.
There is no set limit to the amount of feedback or the number of changes you can ask for, as long as there is enough time on your project. You can communicate directly with the different designers & tweak your magazine cover to the point you are loving it.
We are a global platform & only allow the best 5% of all designer applicants to join DesignBro. Currently we see most clusters of our designers in Europe and The Americas. All designers speak a professional, if not native, level of English- but most importantly they are experts in design.
You will own 100% of the winning design. All copyrights are yours. Over any stock imagery, icons or fonts or other (free or paid) materials that have been used copyright cannot be transferred.
You will be delivered all the agency standards for you will get the ‘open’, ‘editable’ .ai or .eps files, as well as jpg and png for direct use. If you need anything specific, don’t hesitate to ask your designer.
Yes! for just $35 you can get a ‘standard NDA’ (non disclosure agreement) on your logo project. You can select this while you start the project, just before you pay. This means the designers will have to agree to the terms before they are able to see your project.
