How To Design A Photo Zine In Indesign

In this episode I answer the question I get often of “How do I design a zine”.

Sketches Of Light Zine available here ::

Months ago I made an episode on how I go about sequencing and building the initial concept of my zines. I showed how I made the initial layout for my first zine in that video (

In this video, we dive into Indesign, and I give you the absolute most basic tools for laying out your own zine, and being able to do so in a matter of hours. My hopes in making this video, is that it would dispel any fears of designing in Adobe’s Indesign, and show you just how easy and painless the whole process actually is.

These videos are part of a larger series, entirely focused on building photo zines from start to finish. The entire series has been cataloged in this playlist (

I by no means claim to be an expert on the topic, however I experienced quite a bit through the process of making my zines, and am happy to share the highs and lows of what I experienced.

  • u, fuckin legend, have just saved my entire final project for this semester. god bless.

  • Bro, I really feel like I had took a workshop, you're definitely good at explaining !

  • These is a great tutorial 👍 Do you think you can do something similar in Lightroom-Book module?

  • Hi there! 
    Great video, very useful! Thanks for this.

    Just have a question:
    How do you create the cover of a zine if you want to use the same image 
    spread in front and back cover as you did in your zine "My kind of town"?

  • Awesome, awesome video. I"m not even using InDesign (using Affinity Publisher)

  • This is very helpful

  • jajajajajajajaajjaajja omfg i paused the video and got distracted by other stuff for several minutes and as soon as i press play he starts talking about rhytm and how we have short attention spans and how we probably left the video and came back, god is that you? wtf xD

  • great video – save me a lot of time

  • thank you! the Constrain trick was exactly what i needed!

  • did he show how he created the ruler grids?

  • Sooooo what's the dif between zine & book? My dad's got all these fanzines from the 80s & 90s and a big part of them is they look like shite, wonderful, but real shite. Analog cut & paste

  • Thank you Nick! Great help!

  • i like your tee! thankyou for this video, im creating my first photo book project <3

  • Such a great help for beginners like me. Thank you so much Nick.

  • Great video Nick. I'm a newbie to InDesign and this helped massively.

  • Your video was SUPER helpful, designed one in a day!

  • Thanks for the video, Nick! Your video was the first one I found about contents layout in InDesign and you know what? About a half of my project is already designed! I'm so happy I found your channel!

  • where did you get the final zine printed?

  • why would you avoid indesign??? 😀

  • Thank you very much for this video!

  • great stuff. do the follow up video!


  • cool

  • You. Are. The. FUCKING! MANNNNNN!!!! Thank you soooooo much!!

  • Man, this was extremely helpful. Thanks. I'd buy you lunch, but you'll have to come to Europe.

  • Loved the video but please start sooner than 4 min in X_X

    Your zine series is simple concise and fantastic! Thank you so much, it has helped me greatly!

  • It's faster to create master pages with the frames in them already so no need to make frames again and again. You'd consider to have verity o master pages with the different frames' sizes pre prepared. This way you don't need even to resize the frames and risk inconsistency


  • What type of Paper is that on the inside? Had a gloss to it

  • You are a really good teacher !

  • I followed your method and it didn't take as long as I thought it would! Super helpful, thank you!

  • Thanks for the tutorial. It worked perfect for until I tried printing it. I have my own printer, so I'm doing it at home. I'm printing black and white and the problem is the black levels comes out grey. They look good on the screen, but they look washed out as soon as I print them. I've tried to print the same images before I put them into Indesign, and then they look just as they are supposed to. I tried both printing directly from Indesign and the exported PDF, and both looks the same. Is this a common problem? Everything else about Indesign is so smooth and simple, so I would prefer to use it if I can get the results I want.

  • Great video Nick. I'm getting ready to put my first zine together, and was going to go the PS route until watching this.

  • How do you set those rule marks?

  • Scribus is free. Use Scribus!

  • Best zine video on whole YT !!! Thank you brother.

  • hey there, im wondering how could i export it without the cropping marks in between the two page spread image, im planning to use a A4 horizontally and these crop marks would be a headache

  • take a shot every time my guy says "zine"

  • Many thanks great video looking forward to doing my first zine. Can you print from a home printer?
