Interactive Digital Magazine
Taking a printed magazine to a brand new digital format has its challenges. Originally, I produced the magazine using Adobe InDesign where I evolved the design to Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. As this was discontinued for small publishers, myself and the team opted to use brand new software to publish Ultimate Wedding Magazine.
Using this new online software, I created a fully interactive digital magazine which has 4 UK issues and 2 USA issues a year. The majority of editorial features use a portrait scrolling style which enables long copy and images.
There are many interactive elements throughout the entire magazine. I’ve used rollover hotspots for product information or to display other content such as 350-degree wedding dresses. Other elements such as video content are directly embedded into the feature, enabling a reader to engage with the article on a different level.
The magazine is designed to be digital from the outset, so readers using their desktop computer will be displayed a version suitable for their screen size. When viewing on a mobile, a different version is displayed which is designed exclusively for the small screen. Images are optimised for standard and retina screen readers to ensure high-quality content throughout.
