CDT Introduces New  Brand and Website Design

Washington – CDT today unveiled a complete redesign of its website and its logo to better reflect its mission "to keep the Internet open, innovative and free" and to take full advantage of "web 2.0" capabilities to share CDT’s ideas and analysis with new audiences and launch online campaigns.

"CDT has grown in the past year and along with our greater research and technical capacity, we have expanded the reach of our communications as well," said CDT President and CEO Leslie Harris.  "As CDT continues to grow its voice and influence, the capabilities of our new website will help us take advantage of the new media environment to drive our policy goals."

These redesign projects represent the fresh look and innovative approach CDT brings to each of its core issue areas.  "We wanted to create a website that was easy to navigate and make it easy for users to find specific content," said CDT Web Producer Cyrus Nemati.  "In addition, we wanted to create a site that takes full advantage of most recent advances in Internet technologies."

Users can still count on the "new CDT" to provide all the analysis and insight on current Internet policy issues, but in a more accessible way.  Policy Beta, CDT’s blog, will assume a more central role on the site; the most recent news and analysis will be featured in a bold carousel on the home page. The new site also will act as the flagship site for CDT’s future online initiatives, projects and campaigns.
