Introducing the New Sunlight Foundation Site

Over the past few months you may have noticed the new Sunlight logo or caught a glimpse of the redesigns on our Tumblr or Twitter pages and gathered that a site refresh was right around the bend.

Well, you are correct.

Sunlight’s Creative Director Ali Felski wrote a bit about the process back in January of this year and October late last year which has included many months of design, feedback, tests and tweaks. After all that hard work we’re ready to announce the launch of the redesign of our main site.  Ali and the design team collaborated with the entire Sunlight staff to gather input and ideas on how our site can better reflect our mission while giving users the best possible experience.

It’s easier than before to find relevant content by topic, issue, project type and traditional search. Whether you’re interested in the latest news from the family of Sunlight blogs or would like to review the latest open government issues or you want to participate in the movement we want to make this process as simple as possible.
