Change is Coming to Streetsblog and the Livable Streets Network

sblog-header_1.jpg

I
just want to give all of you regular readers a heads up that you’ll
soon be seeing some design and branding changes implemented on
Streetsblog and the Livable Streets Network web sites.

Over the last few months we’ve created Streetsblog San Francisco, the Streetsblog.net national blog network and an entirely new program called Livable Streets Education. Organizationally, we have also begun to re-conceive our group at The Open Planning Project as the Livable Streets Initiative.

So,
it’s finally time for our graphic design and user interface to catch up
with these changes.  We’re swapping out our
current header with the design you see above. We hope the new design
will make our various sites a bit more cohesive, accessible and easier
to navigate. As always, we trust that you will let us know what you
think.
