Original letter to magazine designers

Dear Designer,

Thank you for expressing an interest in helping me in my design of a new magazine. I am writing this to you to take this to the next step.

I think my magazine is unique  and I want to protect its concept so if you agree to not disclose anything about my marketing plan or idea to anyone else, I will forward to you a link where you can download a pdf giving you a great deal of background in what I am doing as well as ideas, examples, and requirements.  Your reply to this email means that you accept that agreement.

Beyond that, please remember that:

  • I need to see samples of what you can do for printed magazine design (not web design)
  • You must be able to work in Indesign (I use a mac but I’m not sure that matter) and provide me the completed files to use
  • I am hoping for a finished template by mid-November if possible

If this all works for you, simply respond to this email and I will send you to the URL of the pd  that explains the concepts of everything I need.

From there, I am hoping you can provide me a rate or a quote on how much it would cost and give me some ideas.  From that, I will choose a designer by the end of the first week in November.

Of course, if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Again, thank you for the interest. I am excited about this project and I am looking for someone else to share that enthusiasm with me.
