Another Great Issue of PC Magazine

Our fifth and final issue of PC Magazine is now live in the iTunes App Store, and we encourage everyone to take a look. Joe Zeff Design helped relaunch PC Magazine on the iPad earlier this year, breathing new life into a magazine title that ended its print publishing run in 2008. Working closely with the staff, we redesigned the magazine from the ground up to modernize its content for iPad and other tablets, adding turntable photography, color-coded sectioning, real-time Twitter feeds and in-your-face typography. We produced the first four issues at our studios in Montclair, NJ, and worked onsite at Ziff Davis this past month instructing the PC Magazine team how to use Adobe Digital Publishing Suite to create their own issues.

After five successful issues, including an Adobe App of the Week selection, production transitions as scheduled to the PC Magazine staff, under the direction of its new creative director, Craig Sosonko. We look forward to seeing what they come up in the issues ahead, and wish them the very best. Thanks again to Vivek, Kathleen, Stephanie, Dan, Phil, Yun, Jackie, Mark and everyone at Ziff Davis.

Meanwhile, we're finishing an iPad app for one of the world's leading providers of health-care content — more details to come — and we're about to begin production on the next issue of Fast Company magazine. An update to The Final Hours of Mass Effect 3 is in the works, along with other projects that we can't yet announce. Expect big news from JZD over the next few weeks about new apps for iPad, Kindle Fire and iPhone.
