How The Washington Post’s homepage redesign was inspired by print

The Washington Post’s redesigned homepage was revealed last week, the final piece of its sidewide reboot. But it’s not drastically different from its predecessor, which director of digital products and design Joey Marburger says was intentional. The new homepage was inspired by the print front page, as the Post was looking for the ability to emphasize big stories online the same way it can in print. But, Marburger says the bigger changes are things that readers may not be able to see: “The term people use a lot is more dynamic. Really what that means for us is we can manipulate and change the homepage faster, at the true pace of news.”
