Our philosophy on site redesign is to follow a pattern we've trademarked called Social UX for Media. We wove a lot of social connections into our product. We've done that by studying what users like and what isn't working. We use that framework to make it easy for anyone to launch a site that is as intuitive to users as scrolling through Instagram. Media sites got too complicated over time, and added too much garbage that we had to clean up before reaching a crisp + effective tone. What is your navigation structure? How does that communicate to users what it means to share your content? The answer is a mix of design/UX and branding to find a real fit with users so you can reach the next level of growth in your business.
