I worked with Knox College to reimagine their alumni magazine as an interactive digital experience. The digital magazine goes far beyond a pdf rendering of the print magazine and becomes its own product. I’m most interested in projects where I can help clients organize complex content into intuitive stories, so the experience of turning a print magazine into a digital product was an exciting challenge! Projected launch September, 2017.

HIgh Fidelity wireframes
In order to support an accelerated project timeline, I created a robust round of high-fidelity wires, reflecting a full magazine of content. I collaborated with our strategy team to identify content types and tags to organize the magazine across multiple issues. Working in principle, I prototyped key interactions.
reorganized for digital consumption
Within each section, we identified a hierarchy of module sizes to reflect the flow of the magazine. Taking cues from print magazine design, we also designed a system to “preview” important articles at the start of more robust sections. The digital magazine is also fully responsive.
I wanted the experience of reading the big feature stories to feel similar to opening a feature spread in a magazine. The navigation collapses to create a more immersive reading experience.
I supplemented InVision prototypes with more detailed Principle animation prototypes to give both the client and our developers a better idea of the intended interactions.
