Would love to know what your main pain points are? Specifically in:

  1. Laying out each page, after you've designed the main spreads.
  2. How do you organize the text changes with the client after you've sent the design over (do you face these text edits often)?
  3. If there's actually something else that bothers you most in the process, please shoot :).

I've been working on a product to get the layout design a bit easier for us. But I'm still in the very early stages. So I thought I'd turn to you for questions.

Thanks a ton, Leart

    Hi Leart! You're very welcome to GDSE! As it stands, your question is a little broad for this stack. Perhaps you could edit it to address a specific area of Layout Design that interests you (i.e. a specific Indesign-related task, a client-communication issue, typography, etc)? Here are some tips to help structure your question – johnp Jul 9 '19 at 16:39
  • The biggest challenges? Probably making an awesome work that stands on the history of graphic design as memorable and also solves the client necessity at the same time? – Rafael Jul 9 '19 at 16:47
  • Hi John, just made the edits. Hope this is better. – Leart Jul 9 '19 at 16:47
  • Wouldn't this kind of depend upon what was being "laid out"? – Scott Jul 9 '19 at 17:09

    The biggest challenge: To get agreed with the client that he should have only one mouth. Unfortunately often there are many of them. The client has distributed their job to several persons and their responsibility areas are not separate page ranges, but different content types and every page can have content from several persons. The shorter is the experience of a person, the more confirmed he is he can make decisions without taking into the account the others. Typically an unexperienced person wants his part to be the biggest and 5 minutes before the print deadline he wants to add stuff. – user287001 Jul 9 '19 at 18:28
