Reinventing the Beige Book Page

A government website gets a new look

Reinventing the Beige Book Page

Awhile back I listened to an episode of NPR’s The Indicator1 and was intrigued by the idea of the Fed’s Beige Book. I went looking for this “book”, thinking it’d be a pretty interesting read on occasion.

I wasn’t wrong, but what I found was a site that is awfully dated. I understand it’s the government and keeping things nice and pretty isn’t exactly a priority.

Needless to say, I thought it could use a refresh so I decided to do a quick mock up of a redesign. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

In case you couldn’t tell, the redesign is the image at the top. 🙃
