Mockup for my own website.
This Mockup was done for a recent article about PDF to Flipbook conversion. You can see that I took a digital magazine and used it to display in several devices like Desktop, Tablet and on a smartphone. As I currently work in the digital publishing niche, let me explain you a little bit more about my work.


Digital Publishing & Flipbook Explained

Currently, there is no precise definition of digital or electronic publishing because of the many definitions that have been provided by different sources. Most of the available definitions are too general and vague making it difficult for one to understand the concept. For instance, John Battelle defines digital publishing as the use of communication science and art to connect a community. This type of explanation does not provide any specific details on what this kind of publishing entails.

Most online searches result in names of companies offering digital publishing services and types of electronic publishing instead of providing comprehensive definitions for the term. Generally, electronic publishing can be explained as the process of digital development and production of reading material or content as digital magazines, e-books, and digital libraries.

Electronic publishing has become popular in the recent years and is quickly replacing the traditional peer-reviewed scientific journals. Tablet reading devices have become major platforms for distributing newspapers, magazines, and books. This has lead to the emergence of online vendors of digital publications such as Google Play Bookstore, Amazon's Bookstore, and Apple's iTunes bookstore.

Forms of Electronic Publishing

Most people came to know about electronic publishing through Adobe. Millions of people around the world were able to access the electronic publishing technology by using PDF documents. Apart from PDF, you can now access digital publications asi downloadable materials, videos, blogs, websites, CDs, apps, and social networking websites.

The Electronic Publishing Process

There are two notable differences between traditional publishing and electronic publishing. To begin with, the final product in electronic publishing is not printed using an offset printing press. Secondly, there is no physical distribution of the final product when it comes to electronic printing.

In other words, there is no physical distribution of paper newspapers, paper magazines, and paper books like in traditional publishing. The final product is distributed electronically through electronic bookstores and over the internet. Some of the available devices for reading digitally published content include:

– E-reader tablets
– Laptops
– Smartphones
– Tablet computers
– Desktop computers

The content can be read as a PDF document, a tablet device app, and website content. Users that need physical products can use a print on demand system or an ink-jet printer to print the content. You can read digital content without an internet connection by just downloading the publications on your device.

Example of Electronic Publications

The number of digital materials that can be created or converted has grown over the years because of technological advancements. Examples of available publications include:

The other suitable platform for presenting digital content is the flipbook. It is possible to publish your digital content online by in a variety of platforms and at the time give it a good look by using a wide range of flipbook software solutions. A flipbook can be developed as resume, newspapers, flyers, and brochures. It makes content more appealing and easier to read.

The manner in which people their content as articles, newspapers or books has completely changed thanks to the internet. Many opportunities have been discovered through electronic publishing.
