Colorado Public Radio

For the past several months we have been working with [Colorado Public Radio]( to architect, design and develop the next iteration of []( A few days ago, the new website went live. Take a look on your computer, your tablet, or your smart phone. Better yet, _listen_ on any device. The website is fully responsive, and features a persistent media player that streams audio while you are browsing. ## Persistent Audio Player CPR sought a way to stream audio that persists as users browse the website. Built on Drupal 7, the website leverages the [Ajax Links API]( to provide a seamless browsing experience, while delivering uninterrupted audio, on all devices. For older browsers, the website degrades gracefully. ## Unified Architecture One key goal for this redesign was to create a comprehensive design system that would serve the needs of CPR's three distinct offerings: [News](, [Classical Music](, and [OpenAir]( Prior to the redesign, these services were fragmented across multiple distinct websites. The new, unified information architecture had to be both intuitive and comprehensive – often a challenging balance for media websites. ## Integrated Experience We worked with CPR to design tools that interface with numerous APIs. Calendars, pledge drive stats, and playlists are just a few of the services integrated into CPR's public facing website. ## Looking Forward We love working with media organizations, and are thankful to have played a part in the CPR redesign.
