Magazine UX for Publisher Websites

Today there are many approaches and project execution methods to design or re-design a publisher magazine website. Existing magazine periodical publishers often have branded elements of the site that are popular and contain content expectations for ongoing repeat visitor destinations on the magazine website. For many magazine publisher web publishing operations there are also internal content workflows and publishing team responsibilities to be considered in the design upgrade. Our publication website work is now limited to publishers who are utilizing VERTIQUL for the digital magazine edition.

Design Project Elements

In addition to the proper design process, the CMS foundation must be evaluated along with other systems and services for producing advertising and other revenue producing elements of the website. The approach for the project depends on the internal staff involved. We are happy to propose a design collaboration mix based on the budget, project timeframe, and theming considerations with the existing CMS platform. Our team can guide the design process and provide the new publication web designs PSD files to the publisher for implementation.  Or let our team design and theme for an existing CMS.  Options are provided for new magazine web CMS software and migration when combined with a digital publication by VERTIQUL.
