Magazine Mockup – Personal Project

The creation of a magazine mockup to practice my magazine design skills.


I chose to design a basic A4 magazine to include certain articles I had recently read online that I found interesting.

What I Did

The design of the magazine itself I deemed as simple yet effective. The idea was to mock something up quickly against a deadline. The entire 16-page magazine took 9 hours to produce from start to finish, including the layout and design of all of the ads. Given, almost all of the copy and images were sourced remotely.

I used InDesign to design the magazine due to its high level page layout and formatting options.

I did not set out any specific branding guidelines to work from. For the front cover, I took heavy inspiration from TIME magazine, based on the nature of the content I would be including in the magazine.
