Assemble Papers Website

Assemble Papers is an online and printed publication for small footprint living, covering art, design, architecture, urbanism, the environment and financial affairs. We worked closely with Assemble Papers’ editorial and design team to redesign the publication’s website, which is home to several hundred articles spanning over six years.

In addition to bringing Assemble Papers into the mobile era, the redesign also encompassed a comprehensive overhaul of the website’s Content Management System. The new platform includes a suite of elegant publishing tools, so that the website’s content closely matches the print magazine.
