New Republic Revamps Site

A mobile-centric look.

Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 10.42.14 AMNew Republic (please, not “The” New Republic) has revamped its website and launched two new editorial features. The updated Newrepublic.com is faster and cleaner. Images and article fonts are larger.

Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 10.52.05 AMThe new editorial items are “Minutes” and “Signal.” Minutes is basically a constantly-updated feed of breaking news.

Signal (pictured, right) is a sharable nugget that summarizes longer articles. In other words, if you want to make your Twitter followers think you read something that you actually did not, Signal is your go-to move.

As you can see, the changes are all with mobile in mind. This isn’t surprising, as more than 50 percent Newrepublic.com’s traffic comes via phones and/or tablets.
