Emma Watson on Cover of Marie Claire Magazine in Print and on iPad

The cover of Marie Claire magazine featuring Emma Watson from the Harry Potter movies provides a good example of the differences between the print version and the iPad version of magazines. The subtle difference in seeing a "living" version of Emma Watson on the iPad cover version is startling and somehow hypnotically engaging.

In the Harry Potter movies characters read newspapers that have moving pictures and now, fittingly enough, Emma Watson, one of the stars of the movies, demonstrates a modern day version of the technology in reality.

The iPad edition of Marie Claire magazine was designed by Adam Joseph and Greg Brunkalia of LEGS Media (see the story above). They say the iPad is a real game-changer that is taking media design to a whole new level.

Look at the print version of the cover to the right and then click on the heading above to see what it looks like on the iPad.
