Introducing our new website
October 18, 2022

Healthy NewsWorks is proud to introduce today a top-to-bottom redesign of its website, healthynewsworks.org.

The new design is intended to be clean and vibrant, featuring bright colors and eye-catching student artwork, and updated messaging on primary Healthy NewsWorks activities and objectives. The strong visual appeal strives to be in line with our updated brand standards, introduced earlier this year

When I joined Healthy NewsWorks, my first two priorities were to rebrand the organization and then to refresh the website,” said Omar D. Joseph, a board member since 2020 and chair of the board’s marketing and communications committee. “Once we finished our brand refresh earlier this year , we immediately moved on to our web update.”

We have worked to make the new Healthy NewsWorks site easier and faster to navigate while integrating our By Kids, For Kids platform more fully and better positioning content for use by teachers and students.

“The goal of the site is to provide tools and resources to our key stakeholders,” Omar said. “We want to share with administrators and teachers the opportunities that are available for their schools, students, and parents.”

The site is also is a place where we can “showcase and amplify the creative efforts and accomplishments of our student journalists,” Omar said. And friends of our program can see how their help and support are making a difference with students and the community.

The new site was designed by Rebecca Cariño of Cariño Studio and Lauren Labick of Navitas Marketing with web development by Navitas Marketing, in collaboration with Healthy NewsWorks staff and volunteers.

“Everyone involved in this project has taken a thoughtful and strategic approach to ensure the site will meet the needs of our student journalists and teachers and lay the groundwork for the future growth,” said Marian Uhlman, Healthy NewsWorks executive director. “We’re excited to see how it evolves from here.”
