Life’s Big Questions. How do we answer them? Brenna Finnegan presents the subject in an innovative way in her book app “Answer This – A Big Book of Big Questions” based on the book Soulpancake by Rainn Wilson, et al. The project won her an Honorable Mention in the Spring 2014 Digital Storytelling on the iPad class at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. You can now read Brenna’s book in Demibooks Share.
As Demibooks Composer is the the storytelling platform used at MIAD, I was on the jury. I was so impressed with her work with Composer in creating Answer This I hired her later that day to intern with us this summer! She’s turned out to be a wonderful addition to the team. See the video of the book app and more of her work on her blog.
“I’m a Communication Design student with a love for typography and simple graphics and imagery. I wanted to approach the interactivity of this media in a similar way by using simple and subtle behaviors. I wanted to use the interactivity to push the message of that page and the meaning of the question without distracting the reader. They are valuable questions and I wanted them to be the focus. Enjoy the book!” —Brenna Finnegan

We also have a number of new books in Share all the way from the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in the Netherlands. The student work is in Dutch. Experience talented new art students and how they used Demibooks Composer to tell their story.
I hope Answer This inspires you to use Composer for your own presentations, and to think about some of life’s Big Questions as well.
