The site and its processes

A Public Space is an independent nonprofit magazine supported by readers and bookstores. Our team at Look North Inc. developed this fully-responsive ecommerce site for the Brooklyn-based literary journal as they transitioned from a print only publication. We brought their entire catalog of issues online as both digital downloads (PDF, Mobi, ebook) and print editions available for purchase. Additionally, print subscribers gained access to the entire A Public Space digital archives including years worth of Fiction, Feature, Poetry, and Art pieces.

Using ExpressionEngine’s robust capabilities, we’ve enabled the global literary community to read, subscribe to and support A Public Space with ease, and on any device.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

We turned to Expresso Store for the ecommerce component of the site and took full advantage of its administrative backend capabilities to manage subscriptions, purchases, and donations both domestically and internationally.  We implemented a cool, responsive checkout process as A Public Space’s Twitter account brings a fair amount of mobile traffic to the site.
