Innovation & Business Skills Australia (IBSA) is authorised by the Australian Government as an official voice on vocational education and training.
Icon works with IBSA producing a range of printed brochures, guides and manuals, and has begun creating ePub versions of these publications to be accessed and experienced on tablet devices.
The process required the translation of static publications into interactive ones, bringing our print and digital teams together to work on a number of challenges.
We conducted a thorough content review and produced detailed wireframes to begin the process, establishing clear communication with the client and a solid foundation for the project.
Using the latest version of Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite (including Adobe InDesign), IBSA’s print layouts were then reinvented for tablet viewing and tested over numerous rounds of interaction review.
Enhancements for the ePub format included:
Icon has worked with La Trobe University since 2009, producing a wide variety of printed collateral – including many large and complex publications.
Our team is now helping the university develop ePub versions of their print collateral, allowing students to access and experience these publications using tablet devices.
The 2015 International Prospectus is the first ePub the university has published. Highlights of the project include:
The 2015 International Prospectus is now available on the App Store and Google Play, giving local and international students easy access to virtual campus tours, course information, and application requirements.
