The Webby Awards

We are delighted that our recent collaboration with Point Five Design on Democracy Journal’s new website, launched in December 2015, has already received great recognition.

First the new site was named a Webby Honoree in the Political Blog / Websites category. That was followed by Horizon Interactive’s Award for Best Use of Typography. And now the Communicator Awards have given the site the Award of Excellence in the Websites/Politics category!

Congratulations to Democracy Journal, Point Five and our team here at Tierra!

Transforming The CW Press

Posted by melissa | July 18, 2014

With The CW Network’s brand and programming becoming more prominent, the time was ripe to re-launch The CW’s press site.

Our clients in The CW’s communications department knew they needed to transform their closed, password-protected site into a publicly available (and shareable) resource that also provides permission-based assets.

After discussing various options, our client chose an efficient and cost-effective path to market. Why not take advantage of their parent company’s press site, which is widely regarded as the industry standard?

Since Tierra designed, built and supports CBS Press Express, we knew this was a viable option.

CWTVPR.com is now powered by many of the same tools used by over 20 CBS divisions that publish content on Press Express. We created custom features and a new design that showcases the network’s stunning photography.

The result is a beautiful site that serves as a comprehensive resource for the press. The interface is easy to use, modern and seamlessly extends The CW’s unique brand.

Here’s to the ongoing growth of The CW’s digital presence!

 

The CW Press Schedule Grid

Journalists go to the schedule grid to get a quick glimpse of the programming from last week, this week, next week and the week after next. They can copy episodic information or click through to view related episodic assets.

 

The CW Press Show About Page

Journalists visit the newly designed show pages to grab essential information and get up-to-the-minute Tweets related to the show.

 

The CW Press Episodic Photos

Journalists can filter photos by show, type, season and episode and grab relevant episode and photo descriptions.

A new site for a venerable publication

Posted by jamie | April 2, 2014

YLJ.orgMy team here at Tierra and our friends at Point Five are delighted to announce the redesign of The Yale Law Journal’s website.

Working closely with the 2013-14 editors, Tierra and Point Five reimagined the website to facilitate easy reading for legal scholars.  Among the site’s principle features are an easy to browse archive, side by side footnote overlays for reference and full HTML articles, an innovation few law journals have attempted to date given the extensive length and annotations of legal scholarship.

In addition to implementing the beautiful new site design by the Point Five team, Tierra developed a highly streamlined publishing process as part of the new custom CMS for the site.  Final drafts of edited and approved articles in a Microsoft Word format are uploaded to the CMS and then automatically parsed and rendered as HTML for publishing.  Additional documents (PDFs, tables, images) can also be inserted into the HTML. 

Hats off to the YLJ editors for their vision, patience, and dedication to this project as well.  It was a fantastic collaboration for our teams.
