Council on Foreign Relations
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has established itself as a leader in foreign affairs, fostering non-partisan in-depth analysis and reporting on international relations since 1921. With a nearly 100 year old organization and a ten year old website, a digital refresh was needed to modernize the site and enrich its publishing capabilities.
Code and Theory partnered with the CFR to re-platform its flagship digital property, CFR.org with the goal of modernizing its look and feel while maintaining the heritage, authority and prestige and creating a refreshing user experience that captivated users from expert to novice as it continues its mission to expand and inform the foreign policy conversation in the United States.
The result is an immersive reading and watching experience communicating the breadth of offerings to audiences with novice to expert levels of understanding on a modern, modular and responsive design system that empowers content creators through an intuitive and powerful CMS.
