Publisher Website Redesign Recommendation

Let's review the factors that must be considered for any redesign with implications for audience and advertising growth. Our approach recommendation provides magazine publishers insight on key project elements and design UX (reader experience) strategy considerations.

Existing magazine publishers often have branded elements of the site that are popular and contain content expectations for ongoing repeat visitor destinations on the magazine website. For many magazine publisher web publishing operations there are also internal content workflows and publishing team responsibilities to be considered in the design upgrade. This type of a magazine website redesign requires collaboration from the publishing team, analysis of UX requirements, strategy for market advantage, and focus on improved conversion for new subscribers and visitors.

Design Project Elements

In addition to the proper design process, the CMS foundation must be evaluated along with other systems and services for producing ad and other revenue producing elements of the website. The approach for this project depends on the internal staff that will be involved. We are happy to propose a design collaboration mix based on the customer budget, project timeframe, and theming considerations with the existing CMS platform. Our team can guide the design process and provide the new publication web designs to the publisher for implementation or we can provide the theming for an existing CMS or provide new magazine CMS options.
