Splash redesign aims to make reader experience easier and more interactive

Just shy of its third birthday Splash, the leading source for shipping news, has had a redesign.

Aimed at making the reading experience more simple yet more interactive, the new look Splash site makes it easier to access the news and views you are after whether from your PC or while on the move. The main menu at the top now scrolls down with readers as they peruse the site. The main menu also features drop down options to help access recently published articles. We’ve made it easier to share stories with contacts, even adding a WhatsApp button when using mobile.

The site also today unveils a new logo, aimed at getting the readership to refer to the site simply as Splash.

Elsewhere, readers will continue to see the familiar parts of the site that have made it so popular in its first three years. Splash continues to house sister title Maritime CEO, both with daily online interviews as well as the quarterly magazine. The Freaky Wave, our in house cartoonist, continues to have a prime spot on the site as do our Opinion writers and our readers’ comments.

Further changes will be made later in the year while the team at Splash is excited to reveal new big names will be added to the editorial lineup soon.

Readers attending this year’s Posidonia in Greece will get an especially strong look at Splash as we are sponsoring the event and reporting live from the many events across the Greek capital.

Splash will also be reporting live from many of the year’s other big shows including SMM Hamburg, Asia Pacific Maritime in Singapore, the Global Maritime Forum in Hong Kong, TPM Asia in Shenzhen and our very own set of Maritime CEO Forums.

Commenting on today’s redesign, editorial director Sam Chambers said: “The changes made today reflect what our readers want – timely, easily accessible, exclusive news and views. The cleaner look of the site combined with some navigational tweaks ensures Splash has the freshest look among the thousands of maritime titles out there.”
