New blog post and sneak peek of design refresh

Design refresh update: Sneak peek

The timeframe for rolling out the design refresh and template changes will be several more weeks, but in the meantime here are a few more details about the design refresh we’re excited to share with you all:

  • Overall cleaner look with fewer grey borders and more white space
  • Website background color will be changing from light grey to white
  • Font size and line height (space between lines) will be increasing 15-25% (depending on the content type)
  • Yellow page titles will be replaced by red page titles (hooray!)
  • The Jumbotron and Quicklinks content types will be redesigned with brighter brand colors and a cleaner look (goodbye black and yellow flags!)
  • More options for content type placement. Some content types are currently limited to just one zone, but after the roll out, more content types will be available in more zones. For example, the infographic content type (which is currently only available in zone A) will be offered in all zones on the page.
  • New styles for all banners
  • Launching several new content types, among which include the Panel, and the Spotlight, which we’re excited to show you a sneak peek of the designs by clicking to read in our blog post.
