Review: The Long + Short

Posted by Esther Kezia Harding on Feb 20, 2015 4:17:22 PM

The Long + Short is a digital-first publication by Nesta, the UK's innovation foundation. Its content is clever and engaging, but does it do enough to make up for a frustrating reading experience?

The app has been designed so that the HTML is edited once, and pushed out to multiple platforms. This is neat as a cost-effective way of publishing for maximum audience reach; The Long + Short can be accessed from a desktop, through the Apple and Android stores, and through a mobile-responsive web browser for those on devices without a supporting app. The content can also be read in any orientation, and it all reflows nicely when the device is rotated. To top it off, the app is lightweight, and the issues can be viewed almost instantly without a long wait for content to download.

Continuous scroll – the new way to keep your digital readers?

Posted by Esther Kezia Harding on Aug 19, 2014 9:20:37 AM

Social media has undoubtedly brought the world closer together. You probably take it for granted how easy it is to send holiday photos and mundane messages across the world to your long-lost Auntie in Albuquerque…

Indeed, websites like Facebook and Twitter have reshaped the way we find and absorb information and news, with most of us now logging-on to find out what is actually going on in the world, not just in our friendship groups.

Mega-phones: the impact of growing screen sizes on Digital Publishing

Posted by Esther Kezia Harding on Aug 13, 2014 5:26:03 PM

The internet has been awash with photographs of a leaked prototype of the iPhone 6. Although the iPhone is by no means the first larger-screened phone on the market, it highlights a trend that will provide exciting challenges for digital publishers...
