Publication web design and development is a major brand element of the Journal publication. The Journal web design provides the style and user experience to meet reader and advertiser expectations regardless of the the quality or presence of a print magazine offering.
Journal website design defines the modern publication style and provides for digital presentation of the publication to a potentially much larger audience than the print design product.
A journal is an expanded essay that presents your own interpretation or evaluation or argument. When you write an essay, you use everything that you personally know and have thought about a subject. When you write a research paper you build upon what you know about the subject and make a deliberate attempt to find out what experts know. A research paper involves surveying a field of knowledge in order to find the best possible information in that field. And that survey can be orderly and focused, if you know how to approach it.
Many publishers make a significant investment into monthly operations to publish each print magazine issue yet fail to invest in their Journal website Design and development. As advertisers seek placement on Journal websites, we are seeing strong interest and budgets for publication web design projects. Immediate value and the ability to immediately execute website advertising programs make this a magazine brand element that must be designed for performance.
