Tablet publishing

Tablets are hot. There are about 3┬ámillion iPads and Android tablets in Holland alone. Every publisher of stature has a tablet edition of their magazine, every renowned company publishes their year report in an iPad app. Every city, company, government, foundation and club has a book, magazine or brochure they’d like to publish on a tablet. You’re gonna take care of that for them… and we’ll show you how.

During the workshop you’ll learn how to set up a tablet publication, we’ll show you the differences between publishing to a pdf or a native publication. You’ll learn how to make an enriched and interactive magazine or book and at the end of the workshop we’ll wrap your own app around it.

The workshop is aimed at designers, who are already experienced in working with Adobe InDesign. We also have a separate workshop specifically for editors and marketeers.
