A Thai newspaper has become the first in the country to produce a 3D photo edition of its newspaper, according to the Shaping the Future of the Newspaper blog.
The Bangkok Post, an English-language daily, published the special edition to celebrate its 64th anniversary.
The three-dimensional effect was also applied to the advertisements and to a special section called Our Pride, published in celebration of the newspaper recently winning the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers’ (WAN-IFRA) Best Overall Design award in Asia-Pacific and Middle East.
According to MediaWeek, the Sun is to publish a 3D issue. But its report mentions nothing of ‘augmented reality’ – just good old 3D glasses.
The News International-owned red-top is to be the first national newspaper to run ads and editorial in this format. The one-off title will be published on 5 June, when Sun readers will see a chunk of its editorial, including Page 3, ads and a World Cup Fixtures Wall Chart in 3D. Sun readers will receive a pair of 3D glasses with the paper.
Inspired by Grazia’s new 3D issue of its magazine, we’re proud to reveal a product we’ve been working on for several months minutes: Journalism.co.uk in 3D. Our lead design architect Harriet will guide you through the steps.
