METHOD MAG

In 1994 www.methodmag.com emerged as one of the very first snowboarding websites. In 2000, the legendary Drew Stevenson launched Europe’s first VHS snowboarding video magazine, Method Mag. In 2003 Method launched the first-ever Mag & DVD combo. Three years later method.TV was born.

Method exists in three formats; Print: Method Snowboard Magazine, Online: methodmag.com, Online: method.tv

Working with existing content and upgrading the code base the new Method Website is more than just a new design. Re-organising site content categorisation and ensuring the new "view" layer allows for older "badly coded" content was one of only a few of the challenges presented in advancing methodmag.com

The new website sees the combination of content from methodmag.com and method.tv, whilst developing distinct areas for each facet of their online presence; Print Magazine, Video Method.TV, online Method Features, News and Events Calendar.

The main challange with Method is making features such as embedding a Video from Youtube or Vimeo fool proof and quick. The Flipmedia uses available systems to allow the content poster to simply enter the movie URL and not have to worry about embed codes or resizing. Once submitted the system does all of that for them, ensuring a fault free, future proof display.
