The rabble-rousing culture-/politics-criticism magazine Current Affairs continues to not only stay alive in a world of shrinking subscriptions, but remains beautiful, discussed, and cherished. The only problem lay in the disconnect between its lovingly-designed print edition and its just-good-enough web edition. Editor-in-chief Nathan Robinson—who shares my affection for Victorian print ephemera—reached out to ask if I’d be interested in bridging that divide. After carefully absorbing everything Nathan-and-team wished for in a redesign, I enthusiastically set about recasting its article views to exhibit the elegance, whimsy, and sophisitcation of its print sibling.
Production note: As of Summer 2019, my front-end code is in the process of being integrated with Current Affairs’s back-end system. The new templates will go live at the end of 2019.
