With Frontify templates you can create publications that are always on brand thanks to restrictions and presets set by your branding team.
There are two ways you can create a publication: either via the Projects or through the Brand Guideline.
Creating a Publication via Projects
We’ll assume your design team has already set up a beautiful Template Library. When you’re in the Projects section, click on the ‘New’ button on the top right of the environment and select ‘Publication.’
In the window that appears, choose the design template you want to use, give it a name, and click on the button on the bottom to create a new publication. Then, you can start adjusting the editable components – based on the restrictions set by your designers – in your newly created publication.
When the design is complete, just download the asset by clicking on the button on the top right, and choose the best publication format (PDF, PNG, or JPG) depending on how you want to use it.
Duplicating a Publication in the Project Section
If you want to duplicate a publication, click in the overview on the publication to be duplicated on the three dots at the bottom right and select "duplicate". Your duplicated publication will then be displayed in the overview and provided with the additional information “(Duplicate)”.
Moving a Publication in the Project Section
If you use multiple projects and want to move your publication to another project, simply select it by clicking the box at the top left of your publication in the project overview. Then move it to the desired project.
Creating a Publication via Guidelines
The second way to create publications is through the Brand Guidelines. If your designers have set up a "template block" in the guidelines, you can create a publication by simply clicking on the grey content block. You can choose the location for the publication and give it a name. The publication will then open in a new tab.
The remaining steps are the same as described in the section above.
