Where are the best places to work in publication design?

I would love to work for a fashion magazine, but I know that is a very competitive market. What are other types of places I could do this sort of work for? #career #career-counseling #fashion #design #magazines #graphic #publication-design #print-design

Hi Maggi. I'm afraid I can't give advice specifically about the fashion industry, but I have worked as a publications designer for a number of years. Everyone keeps saying print is dying, but I think there are still some areas left to find work as a magazine print designer. And I read somewhere there is a currently a mini resurgence in highly crafted indie magazines. Personally, I have worked for non-profits and not for profits laying out their member magazines, and in higher education doing Alumni magazines. As recently as 4 yeas ago, focus groups reported that alumni prefer a printed magazine. There are also quite a few industry and professional associations that produce printed publications for their members. Then there are a number of free local publications - in my area at least - for parents, cultural events, food, etc. I picked up a few printed publications at a major hospital in Boston recently. Sometimes these are in-house jobs done as an employee or sometimes they are done by design or PR firms. These are just a few examples that I can think of. I hope this has been helpful. Even if it is very competitive, if your interest truly lies in fashion magazines, you may want to consider starting out as a production designer or other capacity and working your way up. Good luck.
