Magazine website design

Lead time

6 weeks




Forbes was looking to take the Portuguese version of the magazine in Portugal, Angola and Mozambique online. This meant three websites sharing one content management system, featuring different news articles. We teamed up with Widgilabs to produce a powerful WordPress application, capable of managing the various user levels in all 3 countries.

Each country has a custom print edition of the magazine. We wanted to translate this singularity to the web, so we came up with a template mechanism. It allowed administrators to change the base colours of each country’s website to match its monthly cover. This also introduced an aspect of novelty for returning visitors that we felt would be beneficial to the overall experience. We took a modular approach to the design: because content blocks had to be interchangeable, we designed pages like legos, where you could break bits apart and move them around with relative ease.
