Prospect Magazine launches all-new site on Glide Publishing Platform

Published: 16 May 2023

Prospect Magazine's new site has launched, powered by Glide

Glide is proud to celebrate the launch of Prospect Magazine’s all-new version of its leading current affairs website with Glide Publishing Platform technology at its core.

The new site gives a fresher louder voice to the title’s brilliant roster of writers and commentators, which make it a must-read title for key figures in government, journalism, policy making, and business, in the UK and abroad.

The project was delivered by GPP Partner The App Lab  who worked in lockstep with the Prospect editorial and product team to help reimagine the site with a striking and clean new design, atop Glide headless publishing platform.

Richard Fairbairn, CPO of Glide Publishing Platform, said: “I am delighted to see the new Prospect site. It has kept its very high quality look and feel and is distinctively recognisable, while giving readers a much better experience.

“It’s also very satisfying to see that Glide has shown once again that it adapts equally to the needs of independent publishers with very focused publications, as well as it does to multinational enterprise publications and businesses. Glide is created to work for publishers of any size and end the waste of building back-end CMS so they instead focus on readers and growth.”
