L’Obs – Rue 89

Upian is a multidiciplinary studio where editorial design is one of the main activity. Providing a user-friendly interface serving press content is a real spearhead in our team. At Upian I work for many media websites such as Radio France (France Info, France Bleu, France Musique…) or Condenast Group (Vogue, Glamour…).

The Upian and Rue89 story is a great one, long, fruitful, and intense. I worked on the “mobile first” move, which was a radical change from its previous incarnation: the site was originally designed for computers, and fed content to mobile sites and applications, at the risk of losing a few exceptional article formats along the way. The new design was initially rolled out for the mobile site. Developed by Rue89 according to the templates and HTML/CSS integration we provided, the site was then eventually implemented according to three “breakpoints”: smartphone, tablet, and desktop.
