With the recent news about Adobe DPS folio platform becoming free, and the fact that this holiday season the only advertisements we saw on TV were for tablets of every size, shape, Os, and color it is no wonder that Digital Magazines are going to become a hit in 2014-15. The animation capabilities of Adobe Edge have really take HTML5 UI and interaction to a whole new level. Not to mention that you can embed Edge projects into folio files.

With all the hype I wanted to build a Banner that had some really interesting features, like “Choose Your Own Adventure”. The idea isn’t new… meaning that people have built interactive choose your own adventures before, but where I think this idea stands out is that it would be in a magazine type layout. So if you could imagine being on page 5 and seeing an ad in which you are interacting with something like a chair. You then continue on reading the magazine and you land on page 20, where the ad has built upon your experience from page five but now it shows the chair being sat on by someone…. Again nothing new designer have done thing like this before in Print and on the web… but again it is the context of a digital magazine.
