Craig Grannell wrote an insightful and useful “Graphic Designer’s Guide To Interactive Design” at the Digital Arts website. He interviewed several influential design and publishing experts, to discover exactly what new skills a graphic designer needs in order to be successful as a digital publishing and tablet app designer.
At the end of the article, he even rounds up the costs and options for creating iPad apps from QuarkXPress and InDesign. My favorite quote: “if you’re a Quark user you’ll be up and creating apps in no time”.
