The first template libraries are now available at www.ready-media.com. Each is stocked with hundreds of pre-designed pages
created as Adobe InDesign® files.
“Designers are freed to concentrate on visual content,” said Ready-Media Partner Robb Rice, New York-based magazine designer
who created the first set of Ready-Media magazine templates.
A series of newspaper templates were designed by Eduardo Danilo, one of the worlds foremost newspaper designers, and a Ready-Media partner.
“The use of templates can create a better, unified visual brand, while substantially decreasing production time,” Danilo said.
By going to the web site, Ready-Media President Roger Black explained, a designer, editor or publisher can select a package of templates
that fit their publication needs.
“Ready-Media provides a design solution for a redesign or a startup, at fraction of the cost of a custom design,” Black said.
The initial offering includes five unique libraries for both newspapers and magazines, and will be followed by “matching” templates for
the web, according to Black. “This allows a print publication to publish on the web with same design style and branding, overnight,” he said.
Template libraries include a choice of fonts, carefully curated by The Font Bureau, Inc. general manager Sam Berlow, also a partner
Ready-Media can create additional templates and design logos and section headings through its Design Room, which is managed by Rice.
“Never before has it been easier to design great looking newspapers and magazines,” said Berlow.
