We’ve gotten a virtual makeover, and we can’t wait for you to see the results!
It’s been four years since our last redesign and a lot has changed at AA since then. We know you need a variety of ways to access the most inspiring content about the visual communications industry, so we ensured our new site is fit to deliver.
The new, responsively designed appliedartsmag.com emphasizes the big images we know inspire you — and it looks pretty snazzy, if we do say so ourselves. The Applied Arts Wire blog that you know and love has a new look and name, and it’s now fully integrated into our website. This will be our last post at appliedartsmag.com/blog, but all of this content will live on if you ever need to refer back to it. Our new blog is called The Brief, and you can find it here.
You’ll find our editorial content is more streamlined and easy-to-find under one tab. Over the coming months, we’ll be introducing some new web-only editorial sections and another regular columnist. We’re also making much of our print content available to you online, free of charge, for the rest of the year as we move toward implementing a subscriber-based model in 2015.
Our improved Awards Archive will continue to inspire. The feature we’re most excited about is a grid view of winning entries, so you can see thumbnails of a year’s worth of works in any discipline. We’re also highlighting a selection of pieces from the archive on our home page. If you see an image you like, simply click on it to see its full entry.
We’re excited to announce that later this year, a tablet version of Applied Arts will be available for download. While nothing can beat the quality paper and inks we use in the print magazine, we understand that sometimes you need your inspiration on the go!
We’ve been working really hard to get this site in tip-top shape for you, and we want your feedback — but before we get it, we’re going to take a short vacation. When we get back, you’ll see the brand-new Applied Arts website. We know you’ll love it.
Happy Canada Day and see you on the other side!
