As a companion to my series on creating Interactive documents with InDesign, I’m going to highlight some of the more interesting work being done commercially with InDesign.
The first example is Born Presents created by designers Belle & Wissell.
Born Presents is an electronic publication celebrating 14 years of Born Magazine. The sample is located in Adobe’s showcase gallery.
Belle & Wissell used InDesign CS5 to create an immersive, animated publication which is both beautiful to look at and intriguing and satisfying to read. The publication makes extensive use of InDesign’s animation features to make fade-ins, pop-ups, hovers, embedded video, buttons, hyperlinks and electronic navigation.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of all this is that you can also download the source InDesign documents from the project. I use this in InDesign Interactivity training sessions and it’s always interesting to see how delegates take apart the source files to find out what techniques they can use in their own work.
