Title: The process of making a publication
When you want to make something public, ask yourself the following questions:
About Your Publication
What do you want to make public?
Who is going to read it?
Do you want to publish it digitally or printed, or can it be something else? (This can be related to your target audience)
Should it be a website? An app? A blog?
Do you choose to make a book, a magazine, a poster, a banner?
Is there a budget? Is it limited or bottomless?
How much time do you have? Is there a strict deadline?
If printed, how many editions do you want/need?
If digital, is it a standalone file or should it be hosted at a server.
If you know the answers to the questions above, you can choose a printing technique. Mind you: this is not only a practical choice, but also a design choice. A publication printed with the Riso printer looks quite different from the Canon printer for instance.
Handling the content: editorial design
How do you visually tell the story you want to tell? What images do you choose? Do you have photos or illustrations? How much text is in my publication?
Do you use InDesign? Illustrator/ How do you make a printable PDF?
How do I handle text in a visual way? Should it be read (or not)? How do I choose a typeface?
What kind of paper will you choose? Do you have a bottomless budget that allows you to use the most expensive paper? And does this choice work well with the chosen printing technique?
How are you going to bind your publication? Are you going to hand bind it? Do you have time for that? This is also related to the number of editions you want to print. Or will you use the glue binding machine? Or maybe a wire-o? And how does this choice affect the way you have to prepare your PDF?
PRODUCTION AND PLANNING
Highly recommended: making a dummy. This way you can see the order of your pages, double check typing mistakes, practice the binding, etc.
Planning is key
Start with the publication date and plan backwards.
Make sure you have some extra time to work under unforeseen circumstances. Something might not work out, like you cut the edges wrong or you spill a cup of coffee on your freshly printed books!
