Layar Augments De Tegel 2011’s “Newspaper of the Future”
Click here to read the Dutch press release!
Layar is very proud to be a part of the 2011 De Tegel journalism awards. Each year the event honors various achievements in journalism - it’s basically the Dutch version of the Pulitzer Prize.
This year, De Tegel is using a unique, new newspaper design to announce the winners, and they’ve given it a digital twist with Layar.
Today in The Hague, De Tegel holds its annual awards event, where the new paper design, filled with info about the winners and nominees, will be passed out to attendees. The paper was specially designed with tabs, an invention by Koos Staal (Staal & Duiker) and Matin van Ee (BDU). The new design aims to be easier to handle and read while remaining attractive to advertisers.
Each nominee has a photo and description which have been augmented with digital content. Readers can scan the images to view videos, hear more information or read the nominated works.
Have a look at the example pages after the jump and scan them with Layar to check out the project!
