Science Editor Print and Online Journal Web Design & Development

A brand update and user experience revolution for a scientific journal

The Council of Science Editors, a leader in scientific and scholarly publishing, was in need of updated presence for their publication, Science Editor, both in print and online. The new journal website moved previously housed in PDFs on the society website into an interactive, immersive browsing experience that creates far greater search visibility and vastly improved user experience.

Having previously worked with the Council of Science Editors to refresh their logo, in this project we updated their journal’s overall branding, layout, and format. First, we updated the masthead and cover design of the print publication to create more visual impact and modern appeal, diversity between article types, with a cleaner look and more flexibility in layout.

Concurrently with the redesign of the print publication, we created an all new online journal destination for Science Editor. Previously accessed as only PDFs on the Council of Science Editors website, CSE’s journal articles are now easily searched, browsed, read, shared and downloaded on laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. An integration with CSE’s AMS allows configurable gated content controls. A previous project included a brand and logo refresh for the society’s own website.

Wow! The publication is just beautiful! This modern look & feel will have far-reaching appeal to our members and, we hope, to non-members and those interested in joining CSE. I guarantee that our snazzy new site is going to make my job of recruiting articles much easier. Authors will be thrilled to see their names in lights! With many thanks for our partnership. It’s been great working together.
