Wider takes part of a 2 weeks workshop with the Thomson Reuters Foundation. The main goal of the application was to create a new app for press and how to involve people into it. During they workshop’s first week we developed the concept together. To change our way of reading news, they worked on 2 key points : only one edition each week to give a detailed analysis of the subject to the reader and a global overview by crossing different medias and opinions on the week’s subject (BBC, ViceNews …). In this way the user can create his own opinion of the news.

During the second week of the workshop we started designing and coding the app. We worked together on the application’s design. First we created a navigation system, we wanted something simple and intuitive for the user. We also worked on text's hierarchy which is really really important in press, and how to highlight the different opinions. It was a challenge because we used real content and we wanted something easy and enjoyable to read.

We had the chance to be in Amsterdam for the conception of this project. It is a very inspiring city by its libraries and museums. Our main inspiration is print design, newspaper and magazine. It was very interesting to see how we could use print system (for typography, layout..) to create a digital project.
