Welcome to the new NewsPageDesigner.

The goal here was to take advantage a newer platform, one that is simpler and more visual than what was available when the previous version was built.

The old site was developed when people had slower connectivity and consequently, the page previews were like postage stamps. Larger, higher-resolution images are important to the design. To that end, the navigation runs vertically on the left edge of the page to allow a more vertical space to view the pages. It's still a work in progress and you'll probably see some experimenting aloing the way. Questions and helpful comments are welcome.

And finally, this needs to be more than a design update. I am hoping to create some unique content and include content from other platforms to share some of the best work in our business. We began this process during the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, but before George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police. It's a tragic time and an important time for all of us to be in this business, bring light to truth and try to make a difference in the world.

  • I love the fresh new look. And I love the larger, higher-res images. However, would we be able to go back to full-page thumnails? Seeing the full page is really the only way to look at a page for design. Only seeing the middle section of a page isn't helpful. One other suggestion would be adding some white space around them to keep them from running together.

    I LOVE this site and use it all the time for inspiration. I also encourage all of my designers to come here for ideas and to stay updated on design trends. I'm so glad you've kept it around. It is invaluable!! Thank you!

    • Hi Abby. Very nice to hear from you. Thanks for the suggestions and the kind words.

      So far, I haven't found a way to hotrod the thumbnails beyond the service provider's standard format. Hopefully, I can at least get some air between the images.

      They have been very helpful, thus far. After 12 years on the last platform, the site was a beast to move.

      Much appreciated.
