Regional daily to discuss new-look website at digital event

Britain’s biggest-selling regional daily is to share details about its new-look website at a meeting of digital editors.

The Wolverhampton-based Express and Star relaunched its website in September with a responsive design which automatically resizes the layout according to the size of each user’s screen.

Mark Cadman, digital development manager for publisher Midland News Association, and electronic editor Abigail Edge will speak about the project at the next meeting of the Digital Editors’ Network.

The meeting takes place on 21 February at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston and speakers will come from across the globe, including Seattle Times managing editor for digital Erik Ulkin.

At the event, discussions will also take place about the wider issues around responsive design, such as the implications in the newsroom, user response and the commercial perspective.
