Kamille and Egmont launched kamille.no, a new digital initiative that set new standards for magazines online. Kamille.no feels more like a magazine than a website, with horizontal scrolling, big pictures, rich articles, layout, fonts, and design elements mirroring the print magazine.

The application is the pilot for Egmont that may lead to a framework for more of their magazines online, allowing the magazines and products to transfer their distinct look and feel to the screen as well as on paper.

The application is built on Rendr, a polymorphic javascript framework by AirBnB, which itself is built upon Backbone. This approach gives a very dynamic user experience by providing both superfast server rendering of the first load, combined with frontend loading of content after the initial load. The frontend app consumed data from an Escenic API allowing editors to only use one CMS.

I was responsible for the frontend application, and built most of it, with help from Egmonts own developers that develops the system further after launch. Sadly, the site was terminated some months ago.
