The NEW Dwell.com

I'm pleased to have been a part of the fresh + clean redesign of Dwell.com which launched early this morning. Our own amazing team at Dwell had a lot of help from the great folks at Hot Studio.

Pages that I designed—based on Hot Studio's work on the rest of the site—include the BLOG landing page, which features the ability to switch between viewing the posts in an image-driven format with a preview of the text in hot yellow or viewing in a list format. These options for viewing content are a theme that is carried throughout the site—on the HOMES landing page, the user can choose between viewing a grid of 8 photos or viewing 1 large photo and navigating with arrows to view the others. It's a great way to showcase our beautiful photography—something readers of Dwell have always appreciated.

I also designed the content for the PLACES landing and detail pages.

And lastly (for now) the PEOPLE landing page. While the site launched with this version of my design, I actually designed it to be flexible and we plan to switch it up from time to time.

Other great features include the multimedia section which switches from a white background to a black/dark grey color scheme—to better showcase the photos/slideshows and videos that can be found there.

There are more pages that have not launched yet—this is just the "beta" version. There is much more work to be done and lots more to see, so stay tuned. In the meantime, please explore and leave your comments!
