Redesigns 2011: Daily Eastern News

The Daily Eastern News, where I am the adviser to the online staff, has updated its web design this semester. Here’s the new site:

And here’s what it looked like previously:

In addition to the redesign, we’ve also changed the URL. Readers of the newspaper are directed to dailyeasternnews.com in promos and articles. The old URL, dennews.com, still works, but pedants (like me) always grated at the use of the extra “n” in dennews.com.

We also changed content management system hosts from College Publisher to TownNews.

The previous design has served the paper well, but it was long in the tooth (designed originally in 2007 by Matt Wills).

If your college news organization has redesigned their website, send me an e-mail (see the left-side rail for the address) or comment on one of these posts, which are archived under the category Redesigns.
