St. Louis Public Radio's website transitioned on Wednesday to a new design that is intended to make our content easy to access no matter what size screen you're using.

This responsive design displays content in ways that are appropriate for each device. On a laptop, for example, you'll see several stories at once on the homepage, as in the previous design. On a phone, you'll be able to scroll through the same content in a format that's easier to read on a small screen. In all versions, the goal is to provide news that matters through a clean, useful design.
