Hello new Hello: a website redesign

Journalism.co.uk learns that Hellomagazine.com has a new look, designed with both advertiser and reader in mind, according to a press release issued today.  This follows the recruitment of reader bloggers last month.

  • A new horizontal navigation bar to complement its picture-led celebrity news.
  • A flash-driven home pic gallery, which shows the latest stories in a constantly changing rotation.
  • More prominence for the lifestyle section, with larger images.

In the press release the website editor Verity J Smart said:

“The new design allows us to present even more news on the home page, looks clear and uncluttered and means our images even larger than before – always a plus on a photo-driven site. We love it – and hope you do, too!”

Hello has relaunched the health and beauty section of its website to include new content and redesign the section in keeping with the rest of the site.

Male readers will be targeted through the new section with health tips and style advice, a press release from the magazine said.

The website attracts 1.5 million monthly unique users according to figures from its January Audit Bureau of Circulations Electronic (ABCE) audit.

Hellomagazine.com launches first blog

stilettos at dawn new blog

Hellomagazine.com has launched its first blog – a celebrity-focused effort called Stilettos At Dawn.

Launched quietly at the tail end of March, the daily blog – penned by Sapphire Carter-Brown – reflects on such necessary and weighty issues as Jude Law’s new crop and Victoria Beckham’s birthday celebrations.

The development of a blogging element – with its ability to leave comments and trackbacks – is a slight improvement on the remainder of the magazine site, which – despite a limited range of bookmarking features – remains steadfastly entrenched in a Web 1.0 world and mostly oblivious to the terms – interactivity, usability, and social media.

Despite this, Hellomagazine.com reports healthy, even hearty, traffic figures. An ABCe audit of the site in January confirmed that it was attracting over a million-and-a-half unique users per month.

Traffic to the site is expected to increase rapidly in the coming months, however.

Sources have told Journalism.co.uk that it will undergo a major revamp later in the year to introduce a host of new social media, interactivity features to connect it better with the wider web.
