Matt Willey recently put together a video snapshot of the design and editing (and editing, and editing, and editing…) process for a Royal Academy magazine cover story. Before the final layout is frozen – there is a pretty long and iterative process that designs in general often undergo before it reaches the final glossy look (which is what most laymen may have access to).
This may help in-part for those of you who have clients or others saying “What? You spent a whole day just on this”? type of questions.
