We are launching a new magazine publication entitled "eC@SH Magazine" targetted at the online income generation market. This magazine will be published electronically however it will still follow the normal print magazine design standards.
The publication will be from 40 to 60 pages to start with about 40% on average being content and 60% being ad space. Ad space will be sold to advertisers which will need to supply the ad or pay us extra for ad creation. Content will need design work done around it to make it blend with the magazine as well as pictures or illustrations placed in to compliment the article.
We already have had someone design the front cover, table of contents and letter from the editor templates however they are no longer able to work on the project and that is why we are searching for someone new. The new designers can either use the existing templates or if you feel a new style will fit better we might be willing to let you start from scratch.
For pricing we would like to see bids of fixed cost per page so we can know fixed costs for our project as well as better compare designers. Keep in mind when placing your per page bid that about 60 to 65% of the magazine will be ads and will require only inserting ads into pages. The rest will be mostly articles of which the text will need to laid out on the page and design work done around it for appeal and pictures or illustrations to compliment the articles.
We would love to work with a company that has multiple staff members that can ensure they will be able to handle our project not just at present but for months and years to come. We have had many bad experiences working with individuals who later became busy and pushed us off.
