New Republic

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.
