After your text is reviewed, the editor will turn it over to the designer assigned to your project. The design of your publication is perhaps the most important part of the process, as it can affect whether the material reaches and is read by your target audience. The designer will work with the text and graphics to create a design concept. He or she will choose photographs to be used in the publication, subject to your approval, and will place all of these components into a comprehensive layout. The designer will then prepare a mockup for your review.
Some file photographs are available. But if photos of specific people or scenes need to be taken for your publication, a list of subjects should be submitted to our office following the preliminary meeting. Your help may be needed in obtaining models or props for use in the photos or in setting up the shots. Please note that scheduling photo shoots will add time to the production schedule.
