Salon Media Site Redesign

developed for Salon Media Group, Inc

View project

Salon.com is a pioneering, award-winning news site with an audience of 18 million monthly unique visitors. In 2015 we started the process of redesigning the site.

I worked closely with the Director of Product and the Art Director making changes to the initial designs, adding new modules and features, creating additional pages, and creating the style guide.

Here are some specific pieces I worked on:
– Designing the home page for mobile screens
– Designing the main navigation for desktop and mobile
– Choosing the typeface for the article page: Merriweather
– Creating a new color palette
– Creating a new layout for the desktop article page with a main column and a right rail
– Designing new pages for desktop and mobile: Video, Slideshow, Topics and Section pages
– Experimenting with ad placements above and below the fold
– Creating an interactive Style Guide and design assets repository
