The Medium

The Medium is the independent student-run newspaper of the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). It is the authoritative source of student politics, news coverage, commentary, and entertainment. Articles are researched and written by student contributors or editors.

This project for The Medium was so much fun and is full of custom features and functionality. The homepage is laid out with the feel of a newspaper and has sections and highlights from each of the main categories they report on. I love how it turned out. Some of the custom features include the masthead with the Editor Staff bio’s and image flips on the photos for a bit of fun, news articles have related posts in the sidebar specific to that category, pages for the print versions of each issue with embedded Issuu viewer, and loads more.

The project is a Professional Solution package and built on the professional version of the Kadence theme.

The Medium

As a news-publication, our desires for the site were pretty specific. Especially in terms of categorization and layout. We needed something simple and easy to navigate. We also wanted to build some new pages and elevate the user experience. Thauna was able to put all our goals and desires, big and small, into fruition. We loved how responsive Thauna was and how patient she was. She really took our small edits seriously and made sure that the smallest of details were how we wanted them to be. Thauna is a pleasure to work with and she will make your dreams and visions come true.
