Middle 8 Magazine
Middle 8 is a brand new digital magazine, telling compelling stories about the world of live music directly from the people involved. Issue one features Atom’s For Peace, Nick Hornby, Mumford and Sons and many more.
Working in collaboration with our good friends at Boat Studio, we designed and developed the online magazine. The site was built on a custom CMS which gave the editors the freedom to lay out articles themselves. Using a simple toolkit, they could tailor each page to include essays, interviews, video and photographic content.
The website is responsive and utilises gestures allowing readers to swipe between stories on mobile devices. It also uses a linear navigation system allowing the reader to have an experience as close as possible to that of a page-turning, printed magazine.
