Before starting to create the biochemistry ePub I had to do various research on the different topics I wanted to do. This meant writing down the keywords.
After I knew I wanted to do the topic on Biochemistry I did research on the various topics I wanted to do. These topics included an about, classifying compounds, water, unique properties of water, the universal solvent, service tension, capillary action, resistance to temperature change, high heat of vaporization, freezing, carbon compounds, what are carbon compounds, polymers, macromolecules, and monomers.
I then organized the information on different pages in InDesign. After I knew where the information would go I then began creating all the assets in Illustrator. As I was creating the assets I had to figure out which colors I would be using. Once I finished the assets I copied it into InDesign and laid it out appropriately.
Then I laid out the text in the right areas with the font called “Noir.” This font is a sans-serif font which has an organic personality with a touch of warmth injected to each form.
Lastly, I added the animations to each page to make sure each area either animated to went to the proper pages. These animations included fade in, fade out, change pages, transitions, and hide/show objects.
