The Lambda Literary Foundation nurtures, celebrates and preserves LGBT literature through programs that honor excellence, promote visibility and encourage development of emerging writers.
Their website was a traditional blog that was outgrowing its usefulness. It was hard to navigate, hard to maintain and hard to find relevant reviews. We guided Lambda Literary through a complete redesign process to update their site from a hard to navigate blog into an easy to read magazine format. This new format make the site easier to use and gave it a much cleaner look and feel. In addition since this site is updated with new content multiple times per day, we added several innovative features to make it easy for the staff at Lambda Literary to update the site and post new articles.
The new site features a custom developed slider that allows readers to slide through the most recent articles along with cleaner navigation to easily find articles in popular categories – like a newspaper or magazine. We also integrated the site with Facebook and allow commenters to login with either their site id or their Facebook id.
