Video duration: 0s 2h 7m Intermediate


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.

Topics include:
  • Setting up pages
  • Adding and formatting content
  • Choosing typefaces appropriate for the screen
  • Creating the folio
  • Adding interactivity
  • Creating an app from a digital magazine
InDesign Digital Publishing Suite


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Designing a Digital Magazine. In this project-based course we'll be using In Design's digital publishing suite tools to create a magazine for an iPad. This is an in flight 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 slide shows, 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.
