Mapping Rules involve cards, which are the aesthetic shell that holds the articles . They also involve the meta data of those articles and banners. We had to create an intuitive experience for publishers that would allow them to easily map articles to specific cards. This is how they would populate the publication.
Digital Publishing Design Intern / I’m excited to say that I survived my first design internship during summer of 2015! I’m still amazed I had the incredible opportunity to work at Adobe, in Fremont! I had a unique experience where I collaborated on the same project with somebody new every couple weeks. I worked with designers, product managers, and developers to move toward the final product.
Problem / The Digital Publishing Solution is an online application in comparison to the Digital Publishing Suite that lived in previous editions of InDesign The problems that I faced were mapping rules and property panel controls.
Solution / The mapping rules and property panels went through many, many iterations. Referencing email filters gave insight on how the mapping rules could work. The property panels were inspired by many design software tools like Sketch 3.
Property Panel Controls are required to allow the publishers to create and design cards. Unlike DPS in InDesign where the designer has to design every single aspect of the publication. In DPS 2015, General category of cards are designed like templates through the online application. I designed the layout and look of the interface.
