Fast Company magazine
To connect the design of fastcompany.com more closely to Fast Company magazine and fastcodesign.com.
My role as UI/UX designer was to collaborate with the an agency, the executive editor, editorial staff, developers, business stakeholders to propose a new site design.
– The day-to-day navigation at the bottom of the site was similar to magazine spines; the colored bars in the footer represented a ‘library’ of magazine issues (one for each day)
– Save-for-later functionality to allow readers to ‘dog-ear’ articles which could be sent to Pocket or other offline reader
– Larger imagery to reflect emphasis on imagery in magazine
– Special feature wells
With the close collaboration of an outside agency, the fastcompany.com website was launched.
