It seems that after exporting the PDF from Indesign, I can evaluate it on . Most magazines request all CMYK (PDF/X-1a) because they don't. When you export the document to PDF, the RGB images will convert to CMYK, and all of your spot colors will remain unchanged. I recommend.

How to set the color mode in Illustrator The Color Mode setting in Illustrator is hidden within the Advanced Options menu in the New Document window When you create a new document in Illustrator, the Color Mode option will be hidden under the Advanced Options collapsable menu. Click on the arrow to expand this menu. Because InDesign allows you to mix color spaces, you can change the color mode of individual swatches whenever you create one, but in general it is best to keep colors consistent.
Be prepared for the colors to look different darker or lighter due to additive or subtractive mixing. If you are a designer, you will have to explain this to your client.
This will bring up a dialogue box. What you want to pay attention to is the Destination Space field.
Use the dropdown to select your desired color mode. For general purposes, the first two options are fine, but you may want to check with your printer beforehand to be sure of what they need. In the Export Adobe PDF popup box, select Output on the left side and use the Destination dropdown menu in the Color section to choose your desired color mode.
Without these basic colours and its subtractive process, we would not be able to print in colour. Just like we cannot live without duct tape, we cannot live without the glorious printed colours of cyan, magenta, yellow and black key.
My submission uses the classic luggage tag as inspiration for Adventures in CMYK, abbreviating the names and turning them into destinations. And most adventures begin at the airport, right? When I first discovered Risograph printing I was really excited about the possibilities for overlays of colour. To create the illustrations, I sat with a large bird book for reference and drew imaginary birds with different heads, wings and legs. I then re-drew the separate layers for each bird with a black pencil crayon onto tracing paper before scanning this to create the artwork.
I love the element of chance with Risograph printing—the slightly wonky registration, and no way of knowing exactly how the fluoro inks will react with each other.
In addition, once you sing it a few times it gets into your head, which as a lecturer could prove to be a useful and fun memory aid. She uses vibrant colours and shapes to express hidden worlds, currents of energy and emotion, and stories that inspire us to dive into the deepest parts of our souls; to explore, to discover, to come alive. We are particularly honoured that Felicia was inspired to make these beautiful collages with print material close to our hearts: My husband and I were a few days into our honeymoon when I realized my life was about to change.
I realized with a deep and tectonic-shifting clarity that I was an artist. And there was going to be no more denying that part of myself. These collages represent what it feels like to free yourself from a prison of your own making. The world has turned into a kaleidoscope, as though you have been given permission to paint the town any colours—all the colours!
It is more than freedom; it is a bursting forth of your soul, untethered, and soaring. The content for each issue is planned some months in advance so I was actively thinking about the CMYK issue as I scrolled through Instagram. An image of an ink drawdown by Baltimore Print Studios caught my attention. Using an image from Instagram, I made a quick mockup to see how the cover might work.
Kim Bentley of Baltimore Print Studios makes silkscreened drawdowns by applying ink to the screen and then squeegeeing it onto the paper. Each drawdown is unique so Kim created multiple variations for us to choose from for the front cover.
The actual artwork created is twice as big as what appears on the finished cover. After each pass of ink, the artwork must dry thoroughly to avoid smudging or transferring the wet ink back to the screen.
The transparency of the inks creates the effect of multiple colours where ink is overlapping.
By rotating the paper, Kim changes the direction of the drawdown. Using quick phone pictures emailed from Baltimore Print Studios, I mocked up the cover designs. I looked to the offset printing process for inspiration, creating a pattern of print rollers and stacks of paper. I printed out a few versions of the cover on my inkjet printer to get a sense of the scale and arrangement of elements in the design. Why does it seem that inkjet printers are always running out of ink?
Using two studio lights, the artwork was photographed flat. Once files are uploaded to The Prolific Group, low-res inkjet printouts are made for proofing the interior pages. A high-quality proof is made of the covers. Following printing, the stack of covers dries for a few days before it heads to the bindery with the interior pages of the magazine. In order to include photos of this magazine being printed, we held off in creating plates for the signature that contains this article.
There are three slightly different covers, so subscribers and stockists will get a random assortment! The parchment is stitched together at the upper edge, continuing the thread design of the top edge decoration. A hole in the parchment from the manufacturing process, which historically would have been repaired by stitching, reveals the title on the flyleaf. Each artist uses thread to create expressive marks akin to a pen or brush. I drew inspiration for my binding design from the work of Kristin Loffer Theiss whose sketchy style brings animation to the natural forms she depicts.
Her free-motion sewing machine embroidery technique helped me unlock a hidden life within the tools featured in my design. On the front cover, a pair of bird-shaped embroidery scissors is about to cut a thread that travels around the spine to the needle on the back cover, all three necessary tools for sewing. I am a freelance illustrator and surface pattern person who loves to collage with hand-coloured tissue paper.
I create my images in my sunny glass studio, which is attached to the back of our terraced house in Southwest London. Our ginger cat Jelly and our labradoodle Daisy are always my workplace companions.
I adore pattern and colour, and try to add that to every piece of work that I create. My studio faces onto our tiny city garden, which is always filled with plants and is a constant inspiration and relief from city life. I snip my designs first in my studio and then go upstairs to my little office to clean them up in Photoshop, so that they are ready to send off to clients.
When I am not working on client work, I work on selfmotivated projects so that I am always producing and trying to develop my work further. Creativity has been a long journey for me and I am definitely happiest when I am snipping away in my lightfilled space. You could call me the permanent artist-in-residence.

We were freshmen together at a small college in southern Ohio.
We met the first week of school and spent that first month together walking and talking, all-things collegiate seemingly beside the point. After a string of awkward albeit intoxicating conversations, it became painstakingly clear: Love or friendship.
