A comprehensive money advice channel, designed and expertly curated to provide its readers with all the guidance they need to live a more informed life.

Initiated at the start of 2023 with a vision of bringing The Telegraph’s lifestyle content into evergreen environment, Telegraph Money was the first channel to go about this transformation. Creating content with more longevity and becoming a reliable and trustworthy source for users, we started out with the redesign of the money index page. While there were journalistic changes that affected the content, there were many UX and UI changes that were needed in order to present this content to readers. Unlike news articles, this content was intended to be relevant long past its publication, grouping content together to make topic guides and ensuring that this treatment could be replicated across other lifestyle channels.

We started out with the index page, looking at how we could group articles differently, signpost what was guide content from editorial. We ran through multiple iterations of wireframes and together with the technical department and information architects settled on a manageable way editors could group and showcase breaking news as well as evergreen content. 

There was also a strong focus on navigation, removing the Telegraph’s standard secondary navigation and introducing Telegraph Money as a hub full of interesting, topical and helpful information about how to improve users’ finances. 

We went through multiple rounds of testing, experimenting with mobile navigation most thoroughly as this is the bulk of our audience. We tried various iterations of navigation, including a large dropdown, partially hidden list and a full list at the top of each page. We also tested the UI of the cards, font sizes and image overlays, leading to many changes in the UI. 

The mobile navigation also included a prominent search input, with a large focus on being able to search for any question you might have relating to money, property, investing etc. this was an important feature and it’s visibility was key. The most successful was a stacked mobile navigation with all the subtopics visible. The project went live in September 2023, with the same approach being carried across to Telegraph health, travel and food.
