Digital books are a big part of the future of publishing. Book designer Colleen Cunningham will go over the basics of designing digital books for tablets (iPad, NookColor, Kindle Fire), e-Readers (Nook and Kindle), and smartphones, comparing how these different devices display book content. Topics of discussions will include:

  • PDF vs ePub file
  • How InDesign fits into an eBook workflow
  • The balance of content and design for the screen vs. the page
  • When to go ePub, when to go app
  • eBooks on a range of eReading devices
  • New technology coming down the pike
