    I'm glad they didn't follow the trend of cramming all forms of navigation into a hamburger button.

    The paywall has been temporarily removed, which is a great idea. Not only does is give them a larger audience to provide feedback, but also gives the kind of people who’d want to give feedback a taste of what they’ve been missing.

    When a client ask why font is important, the best answer at the moment is to show this website. All the spirit of the font is transcribed here (thin border etc.) to create a strong identity.

    Aesthetically, that header font pairs beautifully with their image content. It gives it an almost painted look. Layout is gorgeous too. Fantastic redesign. Too bad I don't agree with their politics!

    Very nice. Any idea if this was done internally or by an outside studio?

      For months, our editorial and tech teams have been sardined into a boiler room, subsisting only on stale cheese sandwiches and a rationed supply of tap water, working without complaint on intricate questions of design, functionality, access, and what is so clinically called “the user experience.”

      Sounds like it was done internally.

      Edit: I found this in the source files:

      Custom theme developed by The New Yorker Tech Team. Jeffrey Louden (Tech Lead), Kyle Rush (Director of Technology), Grant Miiller (Front-End Engineer), Sasha Konovalova (Front-End Engineer), Dan Phiffer (Back-End Engineer)

        Ah yes, good catch. Never know if there's some consultants in the mix though. Also, no mention of designers, which seems weird.

    This design does a great job complementing the gorgeous illustrations the New Yorker is famous for. I love the big Magazine section of the homepage... It showcases the past few covers beautifully and actually makes me want to buy the magazine. The custom illustration for each contributor is great as well. Anyone know if those are new for the redesign?

    It's pleasantly unassuming in-article, a shame the ads are so ready to distract.

    Honestly a bit underwhelmed...could have pushed the design past a basic blog imho

    Looks like the archives have been opened up for the summer as well. Very nice!

    Is this on purpose?
