Denver Catholic website gets a modern facelift

Sometimes a new outlook is cause for a new look, too.

In order to spread the good news of the Gospel and message of the Church in an increasingly digital world, the Denver Catholic has been working hard. We want to not only provide a quality publication, but to also widen our reach using the latest technology available.

Over the past year, the Denver Catholic has launched a full-fledged campaign encouraging our readers to subscribe to our online newsletter. We’ve also been trying to draw more readers to our website, which features all the content included in the print edition of the paper, plus more. To show how serious we are about it, we’ve completely redesigned our logo and website from the ground up and given them a sleek, 21st century overhaul. The new Denver Catholic website is live, and we really would love for you to check out its exciting new features.

The new Denver Catholic website was modeled after The New York Times and other publications that are at the forefront of digital news.

The most noticeable difference is the look and feel of the site. We scoured the web for the different websites that we consider to be at the forefront of digital news, including the New York Times and Washington Post, and tried to model the new design accordingly. The minimalistic feel of the site makes it quite comfortable for users to explore, if we do say so ourselves.

The utmost care and deliberation went into designing the new logo. The location pin is symbolic of the Denver Catholic working to bring news to people where they are, no matter their location, while the white cross in the center of the location pin signifies Christ’s presence in all that we do. He is the center of our ministry, and we work to serve him, his Church and his people.

The new Denver Catholic website is meant to be user friendly for the whole Denver Catholic community. It’s simple to navigate and not overly complicated. The “Advertise” button at the top of the page makes it easy for ad clients to utilize our website. On that same note, the ads are less intrusive, making the content easier to access. We really think we’ve struck a great balance between usability and functionality.

Users can also expect a flurry of exciting new content to populate the pages of our new site. From infographics to videos, the new Denver Catholic shows our commitment to providing dynamic and exciting content to our readers. We hope to provide an engaging experience that goes far beyond skimming the pages of the newspaper on Sunday morning.

The new website is but the beginning of an exciting new era for the Denver Catholic. The Lord has truly blessed us in these 116 years, and we are honored to be given the opportunity to continually serve you, our readers. We hope you enjoy the new Denver Catholic.
