The opportunity

FM Global is a leading provider of corporate risk management insurance. They had an existing industry print publication called Reason, and they wanted to expand their reach and position themselves as a thought leader with a web-based version of the publication.

The solution

A minimal design and grid-based layout allowed the rich content and graphics to shine through. Users could browse articles by various criteria such as recency, popularity, content type (article, video, or infographic), category, industry, or issue.
