Editorial designers guide the creation of successful periodicals, including newspapers, magazines, and websites, working according to a clear editorial plan. As a (graphic) designer with an interest in editorial work, your expertise is the creation of publications with complex information structures and short production cycles. This includes all aspects of a work, from writing and editing of texts to lay-out, visual design and production.
The editorial designer judges how texts and images will be interpreted in various contexts, and visualizes content-related choices in cooperation with text editors, authors, and publishers while anticipating cooperation with graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, information architects, screen designers, database constructors, and other professionals.
The editorial designer:
• designs processes that turn raw information into meaningful publications
• matches media and content to themes and contexts
• makes new connections between existing sources of information
• develops the identity of periodicals while ensuring continuity
If you are a resident of one of 61 selected countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe, you might be eligible for a NFP Fellowship.
