EastIdahoNews.com welcomes a new look and new team members

  Published at  | Updated at

Welcome to our new look!

If you’re a regular visitor to EastIdahoNews.com, you likely realized we’ve had a makeover. For over a year, we have been working to improve your experience on our website. Robert Patten, our web manager and developer, has spent countless hours completely rebuilding the backend of our site to make it faster, more responsive and far more user-friendly.

We did not want to launch a drastic overhaul of the website, so Alex Lemoing, our graphic designer, came up with a refreshing new theme that still maintains many familiar characteristics of our previous look.

Enhanced features and designs to many EastIdahoNews.com sections will be rolled out in the coming days. Like much of the news we cover, our website is a continual work in progress. There are still some kinks we are working out so please be patient as we make minor adjustments to text, photos, links, etc. And if you notice something that needs to be fixed, reach out and let us know here.

We’re happy to say that 100% of the redesign effort was done by our in-house staff – no outsourcing to developers, programmers or designers overseas. I’m proud of what our team has accomplished while still posting news every day and never missing a beat.

Speaking of our team, we continue to grow here at EastIdahoNews.com as Logan Ramsey and Mary Boyle joined us this month.
