A TV broadcaster whose programs and channels reach more than six million homes throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, RNN had asked us to re-organize and re-design its website, RNNtv.com. The main goal of the project was to focus the site's design on strengths of RNN's broadcasting capabilities and its delivery methods of news and talk programing. With that goal in mind we organized design of the site's main page around a carousel element giving the viewer an interactive walk through.
