issuu is an online graphics and digitial media publication site that i recently discovered, and have really enjoyed exploring.
the site offers self publication in an interactive and professional way, to introduce others to your work in the comfort and accessibility of their own homes.
The site has wonderful fluidity, helped by it's interactive motion graphics- such as the scroll panel at the bottom of each page (see image above) to navigate to specific pages of the magazine...
...as well as navigational tool, the site provides a close-up for ease of readability, with a range of zoom- really practical for scales of both illustrations and text...
Often with web design, and online 'e book' like publication sites, there is a lot of "one or the other" factors when it comes to navigation, readability, etc, but this site really does provide the whole range- a clear, concice site with real user-friendly service for both visitors and users.
A really great site- i will definately consider using it for my own publications in the near future!
"graphic design...simple and effective."
