How we published the brochure online
We used a piece of software called 3d Issue. This allowed us to created a self-hosted online interactive brochure, from a converted PDF file. The content was viewable on all devices: desktop, tablet and mobile.
Functionality included animated page turning, a zoom function and the ability to jump between chapters. The brochure could also be printed out by the user.
We had a direct link to the brochure from a button on the website, as well as a form where users could share the brochure by emailing to their colleagues. This was a specific feature the client asked for, providing him with a way to capture email addresses of interested leads. So to do this we asked the user to submit their email address, and in return they where sent a link to the brochure.

The brochure design
When designing for a digital format, there are few things you need to consider. You must ensure that the choice of font views well in all browsers. Some fonts may look great on an Apple screen, but degrade poorly when viewed on a PC. You must also remember that colours will vary slightly from monitor to monitor, so testing is a vital part of the design process. Another key factor that is often over-looked is the font size. It’s best practice to ensure the text is easy to read without relying on the zoom function.
The website design
As with all our sites, the website was responsive, adapting fluidly to any screen size. The design itself was smart and simple, with muted colour ways and simple graphics. Find out more about the web design services we offer
