In 2016 I partnered with The Gannet to create a new digital platform for readers to discover food stories and inspiration from around the world.
With over 400 posts and counting, the previous website was becoming difficult to navigate. We stripped away a lot of the clutter and reorganised content into distinct categories, sub-categories and tags, to make for a better reading experience and prepare for future growth.
The consistent and flexible layout system was designed to work across 20+ page types and categories. This allows editors to mix various size images and text to create customisable, magazine style layouts.
Interviews are the focal point of The Gannet, we made these pages stand out with a full screen hero image introducing each interviewee.
Editor, The Gannet
“In early 2016, we decided to redesign our food/culture website thegannet.com. Through a stroke of luck we discovered Paul, loved his work and persuaded him to take on the task. It was a bigger job than any of us had anticipated, but Paul was undaunted. He got stuck in with enthusiasm, flexibility and a quiet confidence, taking our (slightly amorphous) ideas and turning them into something clean, beautiful and functional. He was a joy to work with and now we’re delighted that he’s part of the Gannet team.”
