We’re the design team behind the recent Curbed.com relaunch at Vox Media. We are Georgia Cowley, Courtney Leonard, Yesenia Perez-Cruz, and Cory Schmitz. The new Curbed.com was the start of a new era at Vox Media. It was the first of our brands to launch on a new, unified version of Chorus. We also shifted how we approach redesigns, with a focus on building brands instead of webpages.
