“A redesign isn’t just the aesthetics,” says Dan Gardner, cofounder of Code and Theory, which has been on a roll in the magazine world after winning Webby Awards for its reboots of Variety and Nautilus earlier this year, as well as designing sites for GQ, Vogue, and more. He compares the new platform to a “design API”: “It’s really a system of tools that can be spun up in different ways.” On the back-end, that means giving editors shortcuts like a Photoshop replacement that scales and crops images after they upload to the site. They can also create galleries with a simple folder drag-and-drop, and rearrange the home page as if it were comprised of cards on a bulletin board.

Young goes so far as to call the new system one for “content marketing,” rather than content management, geared toward “delivering the right piece of content to the right audience at the right time.” Stories like this nail art how-to&#8212;sponsored by partner Sally Hansen, complete with a sidebar advertisement&#8212;demonstrate that potential in action.
