étapes, a paris based graphic design magazine and publishing house, just released their first Interactive book for the ipad and they wanted to share that with you. More texts from them after the break.
Discover innovative design projects through a unique interactive experience: Open Projects, an e-book for iPad, outcome of an unprecedented editorial challenge.
Throughout 51 projects by non-standard identities, Open Projects is a total immersion in the world of contemporary design. These flexible projects, in which the general public often plays an active role, embody the future of design, interactive and progressive.
Cristina Chiappini and Silvia Sfligiotti, reputed italian graphic designers and teachers, take part in many publications, exhibitions and events about design.
They selected the works presented by Open Projects and made an exhibition and a book in French out of them. In the face of their success, Pyramyd Editions have decided to take a further leap in this prolific world.
Who could be a better candidate to take up the challenge than a recognized and renowned publisher in the visual communication field? And what could be a more adapted support than a touchscreen tablet to enhance the interactive project’s possibilities?
Open Projects is an e-book in English that connects and completes varied media (pictures, conference recordings, videos, embedded websites and 3D animations).
It is a groundbreaking combination of support and content, the first in a series of high-quality projects dedicated to the reading experience of tomorrow.
