Yeah, yeah, yeah, we've seen New York Times' snowfall — but who is doing the daily news game right? Looking for the cutting edge stuff here. NYMag is pretty good. Time and Quartz are doing interesting things. Who else should be on that list?
VoxMedia.com imo. Not a huge fan of their new site, Vox.com, but their CMS sounds incredible from this article. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/07/business/media/voxcom-takes-melding-of-journalism-and-technology-to-next-level.html
Huge fan of The Verge.
Vox Media is amazing all-around*.
Verge's special feature on fanboys, with the user interface adjusting to the browser's user agent, was great.
Polygon's design is also kickass.
*I mean, look at this!
+1 for Polygon.
Absolutely agree. Vox has managed to put together an impressive product team.
+1 for Vox.
Check out the Yahoo News Digest app on iOS. It's beautiful and has around 8 or 9 top stories for you to swipe through each morning and evening.
I love this app too. Super nice, easy to digest format. Very well designed - the editorial style of the actual news content is pretty horrid though.
Happy to hear that.
Huge fan of https://cir.ca
VoxMedia.com has taken an approach to tell the whole story through a card deck. The card system that allows you to jump into the story where you need to, without the need to hear it all over again or follow in your own order. It's great linked, comprehensive coverage.
Yahoo News Digest on iOS is also great for the quick check on world issues. Usually less than 12 stories, average around 8. Good headlines, supporting imagery, with social media feeds and related articles to expand your interest.
Both very well done.
Been collecting examples of stellar multimedia stories from across the net for some time now. https://storify.com/ReptarAzar/stellar-multimedia-online
Not exactly daily news game, but all very bad ass.
This is a very interesting area of design right now... lots of great work going on by teams all over from National Geographic to the NY Times. I love the work being done at The Verge, Polygon and the Guardian as well. I think a lot of it is still experimental right now as we all test different ideas and find things that work, ideas and designs that readers respond well to and redefine how stories are told.
Here are a few pieces we've worked on recently from Bostonia magazine:
China This is a large three part series the team just recently published about students from China coming to the US. There are numerous interactive elements within the stories that contain "sub-stories" and multimedia content on everything from picking an english name to cuisine. http://www.bu.edu/bostonia/winter-spring14/china/
Cons & the Connoisseur:http://www.bu.edu/bostonia/fall13/wine/
BU Today is our daily (weekdays) news publication and so the pace is a bit different than Bostonia...but we still are experimenting with different ways to tell stories, various multimedia, interactions, layout and so forth.
Huge fan of Vox family. These guys are doing a pretty good job.
The Guardian isn't far behind with articles like this:
Next Draft, a daily newsletter by Dave Pell (with a companion iOS app) is more news curation than design per se, but it's great nonetheless.
NYT Now (iOS) is legit
