Instead of a pinch and zoom experience, with hard to read text, a clunky login process and sometimes unintuitive navigation tools, he saw an opportunity to deliver an experience where readers could get a seamless and pleasant experience, whether they wanted to explore the magazine on a smartphone or desktop.
