This website though has around three tabs feels very overstuffed with information. Alongside the over-stuffing the placement of the information is off putting as the rows are off centered and scrunched together, it’s a large jumble of information both AD’s and articles. This is mostly an issue entering its home page but less so when you look at certain tabs specifically the city guides. I do think they have good length articles, ending before I get bored with the topic. It also has a plethora of information on Milwaukee and all of it is relevant to enjoying the city and finding things to do.
I personally love the printed version of the shepherd express, but as for the website not as much. Though as you scroll the information is organized fine. But in the home tabs there are far too many that even some of them could easily be combined. I also think the support for the sheppard button is overdone.
This website has a lot more of a modern design with quadrants to organize its work which I do enjoy. I feel like the smaller images on the other hand make me less likely to use the website. I personally use the images to choose what articles I read first.
I really like their logo, the typeface used is pretty. But the website has a weird setup for a news site, though I know it's a magazine I feel as if the website is still more commonly used for news. It is a clean magazine style website though. I also feel like the tabs can be simplified, this seems like a common issue amongst the websites with paired print publication. My guess is that they would like to keep the same tabs on the website as they do inside of the printed publications.
The Milwaukee Courier website is probably my favorite so far due to its readability, it's straight to the point with the articles organized in the constant scroll. I will say that the tab names are sort of weird to me in a sense that they are not tabs I would normally look into. But interesting nonetheless.
The typefaces used on this website makes the website feel overpacked with information. Plus the large lack of imagery paired with the website's formatting. Makes the website a lot harder to read and engage with its information.
Easy to navigate but still far to many tabs that can be combined.
