The Asterisk magazine website was designed to compliment the printed magazine with an untraditional 'print-first' approach. The design organizes the content by issue, emphasizing the print topic, order of the essays, and adds back elements of a print reading experience to the digital. As you read, you are encouraged to add personal highlights to the text while a progress bar on the side lets you know where you are in the essay, tags the section breaks, and keeps track of your highlights.
