New Republic is an American publication covering politics and culture. Hard Candy Shell together with the magazine’s creative director, Dirk Barnett, help redesign the online presence of this 100-year-old magazine.
One of our biggest focus was to make long-form articles more enjoyable to read. This resulted in features like: progress bar to indicate length of article, read-later integrations, select-to-share feature, and ability to change text size. With respect to the print version, we’ve also designed a sidebar for more a convenient access to footnotes.
Project completed at Hard Candy Shell in 2012.
