Last week I delivered a half-day workshop at Content Strategy 2011 London on Designing Narrative Content. We covered topics like what makes narrative content effective versus useless, how to optimise workflow for narrative content, and technology options for narrative content. The slides are below.
During the last section of the workshop we created our own, short, digital magazine called The CS Forum Times, which is now here: http://martharotter.com/csforum/ts/index.html. The magazine content is recent articles and blog posts from speakers and organizers of CS Forum 2011 and was created in Treesaver. There are materials at http://martharotter.com/csforum for those who would like a small boilerplate to start with.
The next blog post I do will be a short intro on how I built The CS Forum Times using Treesaver and will include some of the demos I did in the workshop with altering image sizes, so if you take a look at the starting point and want to know more, that blog post tomorrow will be a good overview. If you’re interested in learning how to do more with Treesaver, http://treesaverjs.com & http://groups.google.com/group/treesaverjs?pli=1 are excellent places to start.
