Built for Readers
Manifold was built to help scholars share their work, including works in progress. It was built to help lower the cost of online publishing of scholarly monographs. It was built so publishers could augment print works with rich media. Above all, it was built to provide a pleasant reading experience that promoted interaction between the reader and the text.
Marketing and Promotion
Cast Iron created the Manifold brand, built the promotional site, and developed collateral for our partners to share. Senior team members routinely go to conferences and industry meetings to spread the word about Manifold.
Built for Publishers
Manifold ships with a user-friendly backend. Publishers can ingest texts from a variety of formats: EPUB, Google Doc, Markdown, HTML, and more. We built this platform from scratch on React and Rails, and it's backed by a number of current web technologies.
