A Time-Lapse Video In Creation Of MacWorld Magazine Cover Design

Have you ever experienced or seen how a cover page of a magazine get designed? No, then Peter Belanger has made a time-lapse video capturing ever steps in the process in creation of magazine cover design, from Photography to re-touching in Adobe Photoshop to completing design in Adobe InDesign. This cover design was being made for MacWorld magazine.

It took them more than 40 hours to complete the cover design. Peter says:

After working on the latest cover for Macworld Magazine I wanted to show what is involved in making a cover. I focused on the three main areas: the photography, photoshop and design. I chose a time lapse format to convey lots of information in a small amount of time. The only drawback of time lapse is that since half a day goes by in 30 seconds, the whole process seam so easy! Lots of details were left out of the design process (like the cover meetings and rounds of layout options). I began to photograph the design process after the layouts had already been narrowed down to just three cover designs.
