Some Design Tweaks

Hey there, Newarkers. We just wanted to provide an update about things that have changed a bit on the site. Most notably, we’ve updated the banner and navigation at the top of the page, including a lovely sketch of the city, provided by Ade from the Newark Art Supply. We’ve tweaked the palette a bit to complement the image, as well.
In addition, I noticed after using our new Further Reading feature for a few days that it took just a couple extra seconds to figure out which sites had been updated recently. So, we’ve added some color-coding to the bullets for some of the news feeds: red if the news item was posted today, orange if a week or two ago, and gray if it’s older than that.

Some of the feeds don’t have this feature, though. The reason is technical — the publishers don’t offer a publish date in their feeds — but we’re trying to figure out ways around this.

Contents may have shifted in transit, so if things don’t look quite right, hold the Shift key and click the Refresh button at the top of your browser. Thanks again to the fine people at the Newark Art Supply — you should totally go buy stuff at their website.

Thanks for reading.
