20 Magazine Layout Designs for Inspiration

We usually judge a magazine by its cover. However, the key to getting the attention of the readers and make them read the magazine from cover to cover does not depend on the magazine cover design alone but on having an enticing, easy to read layout and design for the inside pages. So how do you achieve creative, consistent and visually appealing content for your magazine? Here, we decided to pool together in this post a showcase of 20 creative and beautifully designed inside pages of magazines. In viewing these examples, be aware and critical about the main elements or factor that we give importance to when designing the inside pages of a magazine such as the typeface used for headlines, sub-headlines and the body, the color palette or combination of colors used, the paragraph style, the folio, the styles applied to images. Another part of the inside page of a magazine the designers frequently give less attention is the table of contents design.  These are some of the elements that we set in our templates, master pages or style sheets when doing the layout in Adobe Indesign or other desktop publishing programs in order to create a coherent look for a particular publication or magazine from cover to cover.
