Journal design services

We offer an excellent journal design service using our expert design, layout and typographic skills and can design academic, medical and scientific journals. We can design a completely new system or redesign your existing journal improving the overall journal branding, colour system and layout. A good grid is essential, along with a highly legible and rigorous typographic system with clearly setup stylesheets. We can ensure typefaces are used that can handle all the characters your most complex content requires, from math to Greek. We can also setup a house style for figures (graphs, diagrams, charts) and redraw where necessary, and typeset the journal on a regular basis. We can also help with transferring your journal to print, PDF, or webpage format.
