It is the biggest and most important question that often pop up in the minds of the designer that what are the most important things that they need to know before designing a print. There are certain common questions which arises in their mind while making a print design. Some of these questions are as follows :-
What aspects of printing process the designer want to consider?
Which information a client or an art director want to convey through their design? Which are the right information required in the print design to make it appealing in the eyes of your viewers?
These are the few common factors or question which often arises in the minds of the print designers. So to know the answer of these questions, let's explore to know more.
Firstly the designers need to know that the content of the design is being created by them to a given layout or they have to make a layout of their own. Which product is innovative and ahead of time is important for the print designer to know. For designing a magazine it is very important to know what should be the margins or orientation they have to maintaain in their design.
Secondly, a designer needs to know a bit about the final printing process. If the documents are in RGB but the requirement was to design it in CMYK then the colors may be off and the design may fade away. Additionally, if it is never changed then the outlook may be very much bizarre and these might hurt the looks of the design.
Thirdly the most important thing is the right information about the product or services. Otherwise, it can create a huge problem later on as frequent changes in design can kill the beauty of the print design on the articles on which the printing is to be done. It can ultimately lead to waste of time, energy, and money. So to avoid this scenario you need to to have the right set of information before starting the project.
Lastly, the most vital part of a print design is the selection of colors. As colors are the main thing which a designer use to make his print look attractive and catchy so no compromise should be done here. As per the requirement of the brand, it should be given.
