ZANews, the South African satyrical show which is also the local TV show with the highest online audience in the country, has decided to move toward mobile with a significant revamp of its website. The new www.zanews.co.za website has undergone an extensive makeover to adopt a responsive design that crafts the content of the pages to different screen sizes. This approach involves 3 different design layouts that you can view if you reduce the size of your browser window.
For the design and development of its new website, ZA News collaborated with Methys, one of South Africa’s leading web and mobile digital agencies. The site was developed using the popular CMS wordpress with a custom fitted template.
Since the launch of the website, ZANews has seen significant increase in website traffic, as it improves on user mobile experience and increased browsing speeds.
