The Brief

The objective was to create corporate information brochures that the Boston Consulting Group provides to potential new clients that inform of their services and consultancy experts in any given industry sector. The key requirement was to enable consultants to make changes to these manuals while negotiations were already underway and the “brochures” already having been handed out. Their previous solution created with iBooks Author was too complicated for repeated download of updates.

The Solution

The solution was to create these “booklets” as WordPress sites. Content created with page builder Visual Composer was easy to update, also for non technical staff and allowed changes or additions during runtime of a project. To provide a similar look and feel to the previous iBook format, WordPress content was rendered with reveal.js, a JavaScript based presentation slider, that provided swipe navigation with attractive 3d transitions in all four directions on Boston Consulting Group’s device of choice, the iPad.
