Can you imagine a magazine where you don't flip pages? It's taken me a year to launch this very simple structure for a vertical magazine. Example magazine posted here.

I'd love your feedback! I have people telling me that our solution is too innovative and people won't be able to imagine scrolling a magazine. But I think we are completely ready to scroll an issue instead of flipping pages - especially since so many people use mobile devices. (Try it on desktop and mobile)

+Titan ThinkTank well, sort of. We certainly use the same concept. But there's a distinctly different feel to a series of content purposes together without pages. If it felt like a blog we've done something wrong. How would you tie 12 articles together into a content deliverable? Thanks for your observations and please do share if you know a blogger or publisher with ideas.

Shameless Self Promotion  - 
 
Hello! My name is David and I own a small design firm in California. We design website for publishers and I'm working on new digital initiatives. First is our digital editions platform VERTIQUL.com. Here's a prototype of a modern vertical magazine https://magazine.worldtravelexcursion.com/

For publishers that want self-service I'm completely open to this type of setup and light training but we would still have startup costs.

We are also open to assisting with other digital publishing projects. I have moved away from app based approaches recently. It's odd because when I started my new firm (7 years ago) I was convinced we would be building app based issues. But after several years of using publication apps myself I realized that the average reader had too much overhead to get to the content of the latest issue. Sure the editorial design was beautiful but I had app newsstands apps and individual magazine apps, etc. So we returned to the simple HTML5 approach with VERTIQUL.

If we get sponsor support I'm planning on launching a comprehensive guide to modern solutions - everything from self service tools to larger publishing workflow solutions like Adobe. I think the evolution of digital media will always place new options in our hands and I'd love to explore those with others interested in this space.

I'm looking forward to sharing with this group!

We really like the longform and media capabilities for each article in the magazine!

Sharing our vertical magazine prototype as a solution for publishing a digital magazine. I hope the longform for the articles give writers new ideas for expanding the article presentation. I'd be happy to answer questions on this post for anyone considering options for a periodic designed edition.

Even if it's a roundup quarterly magazine with selected blog posts purposed as feature stories. Original blog post credit links or landing configuration is an option since all aspects can be customized.
