Bringing in a designer

It’s kind of obvious, but the secret of doing your own desktop publishing is to realise your limits and know when it’s time to bring in a professional.

The bread and butter of QuarkXPress isn’t that difficult, but you need to know where to draw the line. Bring in a designer when you need;

  • Templates to follow, for example layouts for insides of books and for newsletters
  • Book covers
  • Design-intensive projects, such as annual reports and other mass market publications
  • Promotional material

It’s really worth the cash, honest.
