A fantastic website. The typography is tight, grid is elegant and flexible. The site embraces white space which helped elevate it. Made it feel more accessible and readable at a glance. Wasn’t overwhelming. Very professional looking.

A great improvement over the old site. It’s clean and simple. Just needs refinement — slideshows need better integration and column widths are too wide. Need to work to make it feel more like it’s not a template. Featured stories need to feel more like featured stories.
