    I don't understand your question. If you're asking if graphic designer make the covers of the magazines then yes they do. Graphic designers are provided with an image. Lets say it's a picture of a woman. The graphic designer will try to make the woman look slimmer and with less wrikles, then he will add the magazines logo or the magazine name with some text effect. To finish off, he will ad some simple designs depending on how he feels would be best. That's how magazine covers are made. I think Embarassed

    It is not easy to be hired by one. I worked with a magazine before, we have a number of designers, but at the end of the day only one was picked. There was always competition and some rivalry between them.

    Well the good thing about a freelance is that the designers are in control of what and who they work with. This will be an advantage for those who really want their work to be seen. Since there is no need to compete with anyone else. Whatever they are working on most likely will be used.

    Not really. Unless you're really good you would probably just take up whatever comes to you.

    Yes, especially on items such as playboy, or modeling companies. They actually pay extreme amounts of money to get their woman looking perfect both in person, and then fix up any flaws they might have. That is why when you see people in magazines, then look them up on the internet, they can sometimes look completely different, and even some cases extremely ugly.
