Where and how do these two meet? what will happen in the future if they continue working hand in hand? Well, both designs play an important role in our lives, is only fair they combine forces to enhance user experience. Few examples where print meet with digital is QR code (code read by an imaging device, such as the camera on your mobile phone, and launches a browser that brings the user directly to the intended URL), image recognition and Augmented Interactive print.

Both platforms are equally important and integration of these two in future most definitely will boost user’s experience as it would in a company’s finances.I prefer reading hard copies but I always fall asleep whenever am reading one due to the fact that there’s no interaction. Digital reading is also bad for the eyes, however integration of the two is best for everyone.
