Choosing web standards
Choosing web standards to generate either print or interactive documents made a lot of sense to us. Less constraints exist in web environments, so instead of creating in print and adapting for digital, we did it the other way around. With HTML/CSS standards covering all our formatting needs for printing, we knew this would make everyone’s lives easier.
Giving access to ‘hard-to-reach’ data in various systems has always been one of PlanetPress’ most-loved features. With the drag-and-drop interface of the new DataMapper, we streamlined this process to make it even faster and way easier than before.
The Multi-context Designer
Designing for multiple contexts is not an easy thing to do because print paradigms are very different from digital ones. What we chose to do is, simplify the designing phase by grouping all necessary assets (images, stylesheets, variable data, etc.) in a single tool. The best part: it’s all in HTML.
