Designing for a digital magazine is similar to designing for a print magazine, but there are additional choices that you need to consider. Interactivity is important, but making it easy to read and navigate is even more critical. In this course, Nigel French covers how to use InDesign's digital publishing toolset to create a magazine for the iPad. He shows you how to add interactivity in the form of slideshows, maps, and audio and video. Plus, learn how to convert the project into a single edition iOS app.

  • Setting up pages

Welcome

Hi. I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Designing a Digital Magazine. In this project-based course we'll be using InDesign's digital publishing suite tools to create a magazine for an iPad. This is an inflight magazine for a fictional airline. We'll look at the design considerations for making our magazine easy to read and easy to navigate, as well as how to manage the project. We'll add interactivity, like slideshows, a pan and zoom image, an interactive map, audio and video.

And when we're finished, we'll convert our folio into a single edition app. So let's get started with Designing a Digital Magazine.
