Interhacktives: the resource for digital journalists relaunches

Like The Doctor in Doctor Who, every now and again, the Interhacktives website falls over, and then gets up looking different, with a changed outlook on life. Except The Doctor does this at irregular intervals. And Interhacktives does it once a year.

Abandoning metaphor.

Interhacktives is a website run by the MA students in Interactive Journalism at City University, and is “supervised” by myself and Ben Whitelaw of The Times in the Social Media & Content Strategy module I run. It’s a site that the students are expected to run themselves, and which contributes towards their assessment at the end of the module next year.

This year’s design is nice, clean and fresh looking:

Getting responsive

And, finally, it’s fully responsive. (Last year’s design had a mobile theme, but not a responsive design.) This is the new look on iPad:

And on iPhone:

A personal touch

One touch I really like is the nice, clear and consistently designed authors page:

Only one actual new article up so far – but I’m looking forwards to seeing what they do with the site.
