SCMP.com was relaunched in February 2019 and was designed from the ground up to be 'mobile first'.
A key challenge was how to address limited real-estate on mobile devices.
This was overcome by introducing a 'Rail' allowing users to quickly swipe between Top Stories, Opinion and our Live news feed.
To ensure stories are told in the most compelling way possible, new formats have been combined with elegant user interfaces.
To date, new photo essay, live blog, long read and infographics templates have been launched with a raft of additional formats and features still in development.
In order to improve our story-telling process we have introduced "SCMP Series" to package content on a given series.
