Quartz rolls out new homepage
Kevin Delaney of Quartz writes about the business news site’s new homepage.
Delaney writes, “The revamped homepage reflects the breadth of our coverage and the many forms that Quartz now takes at three years old: news stories, features, videos, emails, charts, obsessions, events, podcasts, social media, messaging, and more. It also emphasizes the bold, beautiful, and user-friendly design that you’ve come to expect from us.
“Quartz readers are loyal in many ways, from subscribing to the Daily Brief to following us on Twitter. Some of our most devoted readers never go directly to qz.com. But millions of others have visited our homepage since we first introduced one in August 2014, and we want to give them the best experience that we can. Our first attempt devoted much of the homepage to a continually updated news briefing. We are dispensing with that briefing today to try something else.
“Homepages, it turns out, aren’t dead so much as reborn. As we’ve been testing this new one, we’ve been struck by how well it represents everything Quartz is about, from worldly journalism to high-quality advertising.”
