How to make a magazine cover

  1. Choose a size

    Start by selecting a size and layout for your mood board. Adobe Spark Post gives you many standard size selections to choose from. A portrait-oriented rectangular template works well for magazine covers. You can also get creative and customize the size to fit your needs.

  2. Choose a theme that aligns with your content

    Themes are a great way to start the design process. Adobe Spark has numerous themed design templates to choose from. You can find the theme that’s perfect for your magazine cover or design one from scratch. Themes help set the tone for your magazine.

  3. Drop in a compelling image

    Photos and graphics are great ways to add personality to a cover. Add photos and other images to personalize your magazine cover and make it stand out. You can upload your own images or choose from Adobe Spark’s library of free stock photos.

  4. Your magazine cover needs text

    Make your magazine cover stand out with text. The text on your magazine cover is the hook that draws in the reader. With Adobe Spark, you can add or edit text and make changes to spacing, opacity, font, color, and orientation.

  5. Download for printing and sharing

    Once you’re finished with your magazine cover, you can download it to your device, print it out, or share it online. Adobe Spark makes it easy to download in a format that works for you.

Create a cover that increases your readership

A magazine cover must be bold and visually appealing. It must attract the reader on first impression. Adobe Spark provides you with a range of customization options to ensure that you can create something that truly reflects your magazine’s vision and concept. Adobe Spark puts the power of creation in your hands. You can resize your text, move it around the page, add special effects filters, make elements transparent, and change border configuration. The magic layout function moves your text as you experiment with different layouts so you always see what your design will look like. Adobe Spark makes it easy to design and create a magazine cover exactly the way you want it to look. Spark’s intuitive, easy to use functions mean you spend less time trying to figure out how to use the program and more time creating the perfect magazine cover. Best of all, Adobe Spark is completely free to use.
