What’s new

For readers

We’ve redesigned the news and events landing pages with images and larger headings to make it easier for you to scan and find content. We’ve also improved the search tool so you can easily refine your search results.

On the news story and event pages, we’ve improved the layout, making it easier to read the content. We’ve also introduced a new feature that suggests other news and events pages based on your viewing history.

For publishers

We’ve introduced more categories. This will make it easier for your readers to find your news and events. You can also use banners and in-page images to attract readers and keep them engaged.

We’ve also refreshed our news story content brief, which will make it easier for you to draft your content, get approvals and publish.

Designed with you, for you

In 2019 we set out to improve the news and events pages on For government. We wanted to improve the look, feel and ease of access to news and events content, and become the go-to site for Queensland Government employee information. 

We used a human-centred design (HCD) approach to redesign the way readers and publishers use the page. We brought together stakeholders and publishing partners from across government in a co-design workshop where participants provided ideas and feedback on new design prototypes.

We followed up the workshop with a survey to test the new designs, and a card sorting activity to determine the new content categories.

The new design is a result of this work and a reflection of the input provided by our stakeholders and publishing partners.
