[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - The 'Mascord Living Spaces' iPad app and its creator have been recognized by Adobe Systems Incorporated in the announcement and promotion of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite Single Edition at Adobe MAX 2011. 'Mascord Living Spaces' is the first iPad magazine app to be launched from the offices of Alan Mascord Design Associates - Portland's premier home design company. Chosen for its great execution of interactive tools and outstanding photography - Adobe feature quotes from the company's Director of marketing and single member graphic design team (and sole creator of the app) Gary Higginbotham. An Adobe 'Customer Success Story' discusses the creation of the app.
Adobe Digital Publishing Suite offers flexible payment options that allow freelance designers and organizations of varying sizes to successfully deliver digital issues on leading tablet devices. For a fee of US$395 per application, designers can use Single Edition to create a single branded app that can be published and submitted to the Apple App Store.
Mascord Living Spaces - currently available for free download on the App Store - features 360 degree rotatable images of the company's popular home designs, presents customer stories and showcases 'The Senath', a beautifully crafted Arts and Crafts style home constructed by Castlerock. Other magazine features include 'The Rivoli Residence': The Story of Ray Rivoli's LEED Platinum construction of 'The Abbott' floor plan; 'Kitchens Inspired By The Old World' : Creative kitchens combining modern technology with rustic flair, and over fifty new home designs. AMDA intends to produce fully interactive iPad versions of each forthcoming issue of the popular title, and are currently working on the Spring 2012 edition.

We think the iPad is a wonderful way to present our designs and we are delighted Adobe have recognized the quality of our App" said Alan Mascord, President of AMDA "This app has functionality at its heart, with the opportunity to create a truly immersive experience for the reader and revolutionize the house plan selection process.
