WIRED Magazine iPad App Design

Recently I was commissioned to design an illustration for WIRED magazine for an article on space junk which has now made it to the first release of their iPad Magazine App. WIRED’s iPad app is really something very special and a great insight in to where magazines are heading. They have introduced us to a dynamic, immersive iPad magazine experience, and interestingly (after the row over Flash) it was created in collaboration with Adobe using CS5 (Creative Suite 5) and new Adobe Digital Publishing tech.

Below I have included some photos of the design as seen on the iPad. As soon as I get a hard-copy of the WIRED magazine I will include some photos of that too.

My design can be seen just after 12 seconds in from the WIRED Magazine iPad App release video below.

You can clearly see from this video what a great digital magazine app this is, making full use of the iPad’s functionality and kept very intuitive – definitely a must have app if you should happen to be lucky enough to own an iPad.

    Yep agree this is really nice work Simon. I picked up the iPad Wired app today just to see your work which looks fantastic.

    Any chance you will do an iPad app showcasing your work?

    Oh yes this is a great feature and a great design. Have seen the hard version but the ipad looks really swish dude and your design really sticks out as one of the best – Greetings G

    Appreciate the comments guys. Really pleased with the outcome and looks so good on the new iPad app. Great to be part of the launch of this new direction for magazines.
