VANITY FAIR

 

In September of 2016 the new Vanity Fair was launched highlighting Vanities, a sub-brand focusing on celebrity news. The intention of Vanities was to give users a unique experience under the Vanity Fair brand.

The Vanity Fair website was revamped and streamlined to identify three strong sub-brands: Vanities, The HIVE (earlier launched) and HWD (Hollywood).

CONTENT STRATEGY: Content structure and layout was reimagined. How could we preserve the Vanity Fair brand, bring the three sub-brands to life and create a new and fresh experience for users?

BRANDING: The outcome was a more organized, readable and enjoyable Vanity Fair. With a clean, new and polished facelift we maintained brand ethos by preserving elements, ornamental design patterns and themes that mimic a classic and traditional news source.
