Graphic Design Inspiration

51 Beautiful and Interactive Examples of Digital Magazine Design

Digital publication provides a whole new world for magazine design, from interactive touch and swipe controls to videos and animation, magazines are now able to quite literally dance for your attention. The pros and cons are very much based on the opinion of the designers (and developers when digital publication is in question), whilst some prefer the restriction of the popular A4 and A5 formats, others prefer the flexibility of responsive design. Responsive design for magazines functions the same as responsive web design, the design of each respond to the format that they are being viewed on. Now of course this comes with its complexities, and different skill sets, similar to them of a web designer. This responsiveness in combination with the interactivity and direct to web abilities is what attracts publishers and readers to this relatively new medium.

Below you will find a compilation of 51 images taken from 10 different digital magazine design projects to help inspire your digital, and quite possibly traditional, magazine / publication. If you have designed or know of a well designed digital publication, please let us know in the comment area as we want to compile a collection for our next release.
