Signals is the Australian National Maritime Museum’s quarterly 80-page colour journal. It carries a wide variety of stories about maritime culture, archaeology and history as well as museum exhibitions, research projects, public programs and activities.
Recent issues have included articles on the HMB Endeavour replica; beach photography; maritime mysteries, such as the disappearances of Australian submarine AE1 and the Franklin expedition; Indigenous art and culture; environmental issues; wooden boat building in the colonial era; Antarctic exploration; and archaeological expeditions on the Great Barrier Reef. Book reviews and migrant stories are other regular features.
Creativ worked with the Australian National Maritime Museum to develop an iPad application to allows users to purchase, subscribe and access issues of the Signals magazine, in line with the increasing trend towards e-readers and accessing publications digitally.
Our app development team worked with the client to build an application that is intuitive, functional and visually appealing, allowing readers to access the publication on the go and store them in the cloud.
