Book snobs rejoice. Even movie critics agree with you.
Designers need to covert stuff to fit different contexts all the time. Whether it’s attempting to make a flyer design suit a poster, or whether it involved tweaking user experiences for different markets, switching formats is always deceptively simple.
It’s probably no surprise then, that so many film adaptations fail. A recent Vocativ study compared critical and popular consensus about books and their film adaptations, quantifying and giving solid ground to a conception most book lovers already knew to begin with.
Switching formats — whether it’s a movie or a print design — will always have it’s challenges. Sometimes it may be technical. Other times, it might be how different mediums are consumed.
One thing we know for sure, switching mediums is never as simple as it seems.
