How can we reimagine e-publication formats beyond non-responsive PDF’s?

What does the future look like for digital publishing?

These questions were asked when I was tasked to digitally reinterpret Unlikely’s Art & Herbarium (print) exhibition catalogue. We wanted to push the boundaries of digital publications; to go beyond simply exporting non-responsive pdf’s with layouts that were designed for print.

Due to the multiple media formats of this exhibition, we needed a digital publication that could support audio and potentially video formats playable within the “document” itself.

We explored using a microsite as a potential format for the e-publication. This led to the production of a web prototype that supported audio and video formats including text to speeach capabilities and alt text/image descriptions to make the publication accessible to a wider audience.
