Digital Publishing (Destination Magazine)

Destination Magazine is a fictitious publication that highlights high-end travel destinations around the world. In this digital edition the publication features the island of Barbados.

I made the publication interactive with the help of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and optimized it for various tablet devices. The publication has different overlay interactions, such as slideshows, external and internal hyperlinking, object state animations, sequence overlays and scrollable content (panorama images). Both the articles and advertisements are interactive.

The digital publication is successful because the layout is simple, clean and a comfortable amount of white space, giving the magazine a sense of luxury. Also the reader is aware at all times what is interactive and what is not interactive on each page.

Below you can see a video that shows you the cover, two articles and two advertisements.
