Why Quartz thinks the homepage isn’t dead, just reborn

As Quartz revealed a redesign of its homepage, Zach Seward writes, “Homepages, it turns out, aren’t dead so much as reborn.” Quartz’s new homepage goes from being a “continually updated news briefing” to include the many story forms Quartz’s coverage now takes, including news stories, podcasts, social media and events. Seward said to Fast Company: “The idea of a strictly traditional homepage that people bookmark to find stories is, we think, outdated. But at the same time, we don’t want to be defeatist about it. There’s still a large number of people coming to the homepage each day. So we’ve asked ourselves, ‘If you start throwing out the old conventions, what can you do instead?’”
