Making Publications Work Across Innumerable Platforms & Keeping Your Sanity -S4

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Imagine making a one-time commitment and having your publication work across innumerable platforms. The content is entered once in a single CMS and it works perfectly on the web, on a tablet or phone, indeed on any device you can imagine. Impossible? Not if you use Responsive Design. When talking about Responsive Design, it’s easy to feel that it could be applied to alumni magazines and other publications. But the enthusiasm frequently fades when existing teams encounter new and thorny challenges. How do you get approvals if Responsive methodologies demand a more iterative approach? How do roles and responsibilities need to shift to accommodate the new order of things? How do you reliably predict the cost? A case study will be used to show how to move beyond flip-books and apps to create a publication that displays and behaves elegantly across innumerable platforms, and what lessons we’ve learned about making the transition.
