It is refreshing to find a positive and inclusive attitude to design problems, whereby Lexographic are happy to suggest strong design ideas but also willing to adapt to our inputs and ideas to produce work which is effective and impactful.
We've become experts in designing new magazines or revamping existing ones, for both digital and print publication. Here are front page samples of some the many magazine designs we've created in the last ten years. We often to continue to provide design and layout services for individual issues once the magazine has been launched or relaunched.

We can also help you with editorial management – things like forward planning, commissioning, style policy, and developing a coherent concept for your magazine. See our editorial pages for more details.

flyers & posters
Flyers and posters are still among the simplest ways to get your message across quickly, particularly if they are well targeted at a clearly defined "audience".
The design needs to make it quite clear who the leaflet or poster is for and the copy needs to get straight to the point. We can help with both. Here are a few examples of the many flyers or posters we've produced for our clients in recent years.

Over the years, this has become something of a speciality of ours. Annual reports, research reports, campaign publications can often be long, unwieldy documents, with many sections and sub-sections and copy coming from many different people (with varying attitudes to deadlines!). We're used to all that.
We can work with your existing house style, or come up with an original design. Either way, we make sure the design and copy are consistent and the document is as clear and concise as possible. Long tables of data or charts and graphs are no problem. And we'll find the right pictures to make your report as eye-catching as possible.
