    1) What are the most important information to know the editorial designer ?
    2) Who are the most important design programs for the magazine design ?
    3) What element are important for the magazine design? (layout-typeface)
    4) How i can choose the perfect cover for the magazine ?
    5) Who are the general rules to print a magazine ? (cmyk-pdf)

    Thank you !!

    1 - Everything, content, imagery advertising

    2 - illustrator and indesign occasionally photoshop

    3 - Typography, composition and reader hotspots

    4 - good quality photo fully bled and taking up the cover, spice it up with nice type and clever layout - cant go wrong

    5 - 300dpi , 3mm bleed , cmyk always and make sure the page number is divisible by 4

    There is a lot more than this but those are the short answers
