Podcast to PDF

The nature of reading is changing for us. The affordances of hypertext allow us to connect information to the larger body of knowledge, however, we now struggle with a latent aspect of the technology: sustaining attention on a text.

This digital publication is an exploration of the narrative and technical capabilities of interactive-PDF format, specifically for iPad (iPad being the most recent evolution of the magazine). The content is a transcript of a podcast episode and the design is a weird child of print and web formatting techniques. The affordances of this format allowed me to facilitate many paths and entry/re-entry points for the users to explore the content.
