ASTRONAUT is a magazine developed for the iPad. In clearly structured articles and videos, it presents personalities who ambitiously follow unique paths. These personalities are sometimes in front of the camera, sometimes behind it, and occasionally on both sides.
The magazine-app with 80 minutes of video content includes reports, interviews, documentaries and music videos. For fans of the traditional print format, ASTRONAUT is presented in a classic editorial design with expressive photography and clear typography which can be expanded on several interactive levels on the iPad. Users will find text to read, photos to admire and arrange, and videos to watch. There are also some photo series that are not obvious at first glance and astute users are rewarded with pleasant little surprises upon their discovery. This combination of text and video creates an inspiring work that takes users on a voyage to the stars.
ASTRONAUT offers a place for independent filmmakers to present their documentaries and other projects that are close to their hearts and were achieved in their spare time often with minimal technical support or outside help.
Up and coming music acts and photographers are profiled, artists and fashion designers are shown as they go about their work in their studios and people who are ambitiously following new paths and creating new disciplines are introduced. The user has a front row seat for all of this and gets to know these protagonists on an almost personal level while reading or watching the relaxed interviews. The use of film brings the themes and topics into the user’s perception on a more direct level.
ASTRONAUT lives from amazing stories about people who break the rules and create new worlds far removed from commercial concerns.
ASTRONAUT is a platform for individualists, for the courageous, for the unflinching and for daydreamers.
