The Jan/Feb 2013 issue of DARE magazine is available to pick up FREE in Superdrug stores. The digital version I designed is also free to download from the App Store or online here.
This is an interesting idea! And one which will seem like a godsend to digital designers. When I was at The Times creating layouts for the iPad and Android, it was such a pain having to create every layout twice, for both portrait and landscape orientations.
A ‘liquid layout’ feature would make life so much easier - things would get done much quicker and you would no longer have to put up with ugly borders around a layout as a result of it not fitting a certain screen size. The perfectionist in me loves this.
During my digital design placement at The Times i got to work on layouts that have appeared on the iPad and Android versions of the newspaper.
Using a plug-in for InDesign, I was able to design layouts which feature interactive hotspots for making images larger and smaller and redirecting. All layouts were created in portrait and landscape.
