Interactive eBook Apps: The Reinvention of Reading and Interactivity The invention of the tablet PC has created a new medium for book publishing. Interactive books are everywhere, and have revolutionized the way people consume the printed word. With the recent software available to allow easy creation of interactive books and with the race to bring these products to market, there seems to be a more and more dilution of quality and a loss for the meaning of interactivity. When publishers create new eBook titles or convert a traditional printed book to a digital interactive eBook, they often miss the added value this new medium can provide. It’s important to understand the distinction between apps and eBooks, as it's something that often confuses both publishers and consumers.
Principe Responsive web design is a great solution to our multi-screen problem, but getting into it from the print perspective is difficult. No fixed page size, no millimetres or inches, no physical constraints to fight against. Designing in pixels for Desktop and Mobile only is also the past, as more and more gadgets can open up a website. Therefore, let's clarify some basic principles of responsive web design here to embrace the fluid web, instead of fighting it. To keep it simple we'll focus on layouts (yes, responsive goes way deeper than that and if you want to learn more this is a good start). Responsive vs Adaptive web design
Case Study: The Magic of Reality for iPad We’re delighted to have worked with Richard Dawkins on the creation of the iPad of version of his new book, “The Magic of Reality,” which features the artwork of Dave McKean. The book is about how incredible the universe is, and why we don’t need to reach for superstition to be awed or to understand our place in it. The book contains some beautiful myths (illustrated by Dave McKean) which show how our species has explained the ‘hard-to-explain’ over the ages, from Nigerian creation myths to Greek myths about the Milky Way. These are contrasted with The Science in all its glory.
calculetteVw The responsive web have taken over the Internet long time ago, but common practice is still static values when defining the font-size attribute (...or at least semi static font sizes targeting different viewport widths with media queries). A consequence of this approach is that the line lengths varies a lot between different viewport widths, causing both aesthetic and legibility problems. But with improved modern CSS support we now have new features such as CSS viewport units. This opens up for a more complete responsive approach when it comes to defining font sizes (without using JS). This is very useful stuff, and in my mind every developer building responsive websites should pick this up ASAP.

The illustrator teamed up with engineer Sam Zealey, the waterMelon animators collective and 3D printer store iMakr to devise a 21st century take on the zoetrope that enabled people to interact with her signature fashion inspired illustration style. Somerset House asked me to create a one-day installation for the Pick Me Up graphic arts festival. It's not the kind of project we normally do, although I had set myself a challenge at the start of the year that I would do three personal projects.
Edge Animate to Animate CC: Responsive Scaling and Positioning – In Flagrante Delicto! I’ve received a lot of inquiries by Edge Animate users as to how to make items responsive within Animate CC. So many, in fact, that I decided to produce a number of demonstration projects, record some video on each one, and write this little article. First, I’ll just emphasize that the way Edge Animate handles things like element scaling and sizing is very DOM-oriented… because it works within the very narrow focus of the browser DOM. Animate CC is platform-agnostic (not specifically an HTML tool) and works differently in terms of targeting a single element when targeting HTML5 Canvas (the canvas DOM element). So a lot of things like media queries and such, as employed by the Edge suite, go out the window.
