The journey of PrintWeek India in 25 covers

05 May 2017

There are two important aspects of creating magazine covers. The first is to attract a reader’s attention and the second is to offer a bird’s eye view of the theme and the content of the issue in question. In months after months, PrintWeek India has strived to adhere to these two key ideas, and over the years we have, if we may say so ourselves, created some memorable covers.
