Oakwood Asia Pacific has launched a new digital magazine that may have originally been considered as a print publication, reports Talking New Media.
The digital magazine is called Global Insider and was launched by its creator Mighty Media Group Pty Ltd. The company helps provide solutions in serviced apartments and corporate housing.
It seems Talking New Media shared the story of this launch because it wanted to address an issue that is often seen in digital magazines: the original product appears to be designed for print, and it’s been published digitally without proper design fixes.
As Talking New Media points out, “Designing for print, then reducing down the pages for an iPad (and iPhone!) just doesn’t work. All that effort to create great looking pages, appropriate fonts, and the like is ruined when a PDF is then produced and reduced down in size.”
Fortunately, Global Insider is a free digital magazine, so users shouldn’t be too upset by any design flaws.
