I’ve designed tons of adaptable templates to art articles and create visual cohesion for collections of similar content. The templates are meant to work with a wide range of image sources, from product and brand photography to photos from the editor or a photographer. Each uses site-specific branding and takes into account CMS specifications for crops. Once set, I train editors and digital designers to use the templates across their assigned content. Here are some examples of the Photoshop templates and how they are used in content.
