Mindy Seu interviewed by Meg Miller for AIGA Eye on Design on her archive sites for Avant GardeEros, and Fact.

Unlike other archive sites that favor PDFs and clunky plug-ins, the Lubalin-Ginzburg digital archive is a thoughtful, technically savvy example of how to translate printed publications and ephemera to the web.

“Even if the form of the original printed artifact is maintained, it needs to have a different browsing experience online, or else you’re just transplanting a PDF onto a browser,” Seu says. “If you’re holding a physical book, it makes sense to flip through linearly and see one spread at a time. But there’s no need to follow that model when you have a digital interface.”
