De Correspondent is an online journalism platform that features in-depth articles, documentaries, and podcasts on stories that tend to escape the radar of mainstream media because they don’t fit neatly into the drama of the 24-hour news cycle.

De Correspondent provides an antidote to the daily news grind – shifting the focus from the sensational to the foundational, and from the attention-grabbing headline to the constructive insight. It is supported by some 60,000 members and continues to be completely ad-free.

I collaborated closely with creative director Harald Dunnink. The work below is just a small selection of what we worked on together over the past couple of years. From optimizing existing pages such as the homepage and articles, to adding completely new sections like themes and speakers.

Unchanged since 2014, the public homepage was due for an update. The content focusses on explaining the who, what, how and why De Correspondent does what it does.

Themes
a new way to categorize articles

A collection of articles revolving around the same theme are now bundled together. The most important insights are summarized by the correspondents so users can get a very good initial understanding of each theme.

These themes are very different than single articles so we gave this section its own look & feel.

Invite a correspondent

Each correspondent has a specific expertise which they're happy to talk about, both on the platform and in person. In stead of going through the normal channels, De Correspondent created their own speaker agency.
