We don’t often report on magazines outside of the US, but when one comes along that really gets our attention, we have to spread the word. The Canadian National Magazine Awards Foundation recently announced that Canadian House & Home was the winner the 2012 National Magazine Award for Tablet Magazine of the Year. The foundation specifically highlighted March 2012’s The Color Issue, but every issue of this magazine is interesting, inventive and takes full advantage of the DPS features that enable an immersive, interactive experience.
What the National Magazine Award judges had to say about House & Home: “The tablet edition of this venerable title oozes planning and creativity and is an enhancement not just of a magazine, but a media brand. Well executed, this is way more than a print product in digital form. It’s an excellent melding of medium and message that takes full advantage of its tablet form while enriching the House and Home experience with vibrant colours, immersive options and e-commerce convenience. Bright, gorgeous, immersive, fun, integrated, detailed, thoroughly thought-out.”
Be sure to check out our recent Ad of the Week video that highlights the June 2013 issue of House & Home, sponsored by Buick, that seamlessly weaves editorial and advertising content throughout the app.

Buick sponsored a full issue of House and Home magazine. Each ad walks the reader through the Buick shopping experience, from learning about features, trying out colors, viewing videos, and visiting the web page for further learning. By sponsoring a full issue, it can communicate a multifaceted message to readers.
Buick uses Digital Publishing Suite to connect with readers in the following ways:
- It features the Buick Verano in the context of an article on understated luxury, using buttons and multistate objects/slideshows to provide detail on Buick’s luxurious features
- Buttons and multistate objects allow readers to change the color of the interior and exterior of Buick Verano so they can see which color best fits their style
- Auto-play video show readers the smooth driving experience of the Buick Verano
- Web overlays link to the Buick website, allowing readers to further research the car before heading into the dealership

We’re thrilled to announce that Vanity Fair has launched the iPhone version of its publication using Digital Publishing Suite. With its signature mix of pop culture, business, politics, and fashion, the magazine is now available to readers in an on-the-go format, specifically formatted for iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4S, and iPhone 3GS. The iPhone edition follows the successful launch of the brand’s iPad edition and enhances the content of the print magazine with videos, photos, slideshows, interactive infographics and more – to engage readers.
In a nod to Liberty magazine, which first launched its reading times in the August 6, 1927 issue, Vanity Fair is the first publication to sort its mobile app’s content by reading time, categorizing the magazine’s features in a table of contents broken down by “Short,” (five minutes) “Medium,” (5-10 minutes) “Long” (10 minutes or more) reads, and “Everything Else.”
The result is a beautifully formatted iPhone app that engages Vanity Fair’s audience with its signature content – produced from print assets for the smartphone screen size—using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and Adobe Experience Manager.
Be sure to download the September issue and be sure to spend 10+ minutes reading the “long” cover story featuring the late Princess Diana.

Lowe’s retail home improvement and appliance store uses Digital Publishing Suite to distribute its publication, Creative Ideas. The publication includes inspirational content such as DIY projects and home makeovers. I love finding DPS apps that use interactivity to provide instructional content. By providing video and interactive step-by-step instructions, the publication can appeal to a lot of different learning styles – and ultimately pull them into the store.
In this app of the week video, I show how Lowe’s Creative Ideas uses DPS:
- Scrolling frames, buttons, and multistate objects allow readers to tab through one instruction at a time
- Video overlays show DIY projects in action
- Nav-to buttons, overlaid on a map, allow readers to jump to a topic that interests them most, rather than reading linearly
