After months of hard work behind the scenes, we’re excited to unveil our new website today! As frequent visitors will have probably already noticed, we’ve freshened up the look of the site. Here on the Placemaking Blog, we’ve got a lot more breathing room for big, colorful images, as well as a Related Posts section at the end of each post to make it easier for you to learn more about the issues that matter most to you. Beyond the blog, we’ve improved navigation to make PPS.org a more user-friendly resource, whether you’re looking for help with planning a new public space, or conducting research on an old favorite.
The primary navigation bar for the site is now located up top, where you can determine whether you’ve come looking to hire us for our various Services, learn about Placemaking through our Training program, learn more about the thousands of Projects we’ve completed in cities all over the world, or delve into our trove of Resources to read about the history and practice of Placemaking.
We’ve re-organized the Services and Resources pages extensively based on feedback over the two years since the last version of the PPS website was launched. If you’re wondering what we can do to help with your public space project, we’ve made our menu of services much clearer. If you’re just searching for information, our Resources page is now streamlined to help you find the most relevant articles on many different types of public spaces, from parks to waterfronts to downtowns.
Finally, we’ve made it easier to stay connected by integrating our social media presence into the site more prominently; all of our content is now easier to share, from blog posts to reference articles. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to like PPS on Facebook, follow @PPS_Placemaking on Twitter, and subscribe to our bi-monthly Newsletter, which will keep you up to date on all of the latest news from across the Placemaking movement. We hope that you dig the new look — and if you happen upon any little bugs that we’ve missed, do let us know.
