Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) is a nonprofit organization that protects, defends, and empowers public-interest journalism in the 21st century.
Our 30-person team develops privacy and security tools, trains newsrooms on digital security practices, documents attacks on the press, and advocates for the public’s right to know.
Since our last website redesign seven years ago, FPF’s scope and operations have expanded and evolved, and we’re seeking to update our website to reflect that. While we are not looking for a total rebrand, we’re interested in revisiting our fundamental information architecture and modernizing the site's look and feel. We’re open to new design elements that arise from that process.
As we focus increased effort on newsletter communications, our website should reflect this goal. Drawing inspiration from best-in-class newsletter platforms, we want visitors and subscribers to have easy access to newsletters, and we want to consider everything we publish as potential content to share with an email audience.
We’re also looking to update the structure of our website to accommodate other changes in our organization. We don’t yet know the full scope of what this should include — finding that out is part of what we’re hiring you to do! But here are a few things we know already:
Your primary contact will be Harris Lapiroff, the Engineering Manager (Web), who was also responsible for the 2017 website redesign and branding. You’ll be collaborating with a small team of web developers and internal stakeholders who will be implementing your designs and providing feedback.
We have budgeted $60,000 to $80,000 for this project.

Initial suggestions and observations regarding potential improvements to our website are welcome, but not required.
