For Designers

Magazine Front Cover

Your artwork will be expected to interact with our logo, with part of the design covering the logo. For this we require from you 2 separate layers. A background and your foreground elements on two separate transparent PNG files, or a layered PSD.

You will need to deliver your file at exactly 2597 px by 3744 px, which at 300DPI is 21,99 x 31,7 cm). The top, right and bottom 118 px (1cm) will be cut off.

You are allowed to sign your artwork, keep it small and subtle, and preferably in the lower left of the artwork. Be mindful of the margins, since they will be cut off!

Please do not add crop marks or any other marks to your artwork.

Template

This template is made for positioning your artwork only. Please deliver the file without any of the template graphics in place, or on a hidden layer in a PSD.

Header

The logo of TeeKay-421 magazine is our key logo. We encourage interaction with it, so your key figures can stand in front of it, or the saber can pierce it, or whatever creative idea you come up with.

The color of the magazine logo will be matched to fit your artwork. This colour is 72% transparant. You can always suggest colours. Be Bold! If the top area of your art is bright, we will add a gradient below the logo to make it more legible.

Legal Print & information

This colofon has information that will always will be in front of your artwork. It has a drop shadow, so no worries about bright spots.This is an area that will always be on the top layer. The information in it is semi-transparant.


Magazine Back Cover

The back cover is a lot simpler.
