<title>New web design launched! Guide to features</title>
<h1>New web design launched!</h1>
<p>After months of work by FSFE's
<a href="/contribute/web/web.html">Web Team</a> a new
website design has been launched, bringing with it a fresh look, improved
infrastructure, and new features.</p>
<p>The process began more than a year ago, and several meetings,
including a <a href="">Web Sprint</a>
in Berlin last October, were necessary to produce the current version.</p>
<h2>New design</h2>
<p>The new design aims to be attractive as well as easier to navigate and
read. It is solidly based on FSFE's existing graphical
profile - colour schemes, fonts, and layout have been carefully chosen
to extend and build upon FSFE's logo, existing website design, and
corporate branding. Every thematic element is based on styles which
already exist within FSFE's media.</p>
<h2>New features</h2>
