Sponsored articles are a key source of revenue for the site so having prominent placement to promote them was essential.

The sponsored content needed to look integrated into the site while also being clearly labelled as funded to follow US advertising laws.

Podcast Network

2019

With the launch of a podcast network and Patreon campaign, the Hard Times needed a way to showcase and promote new episodes on site.

To solve this a visuall distinct component was added to the sidebar to list new episodes from the various podcasts. A landing page was also created to learn more about the Podcast Network and Patreon and give readers an option to subscribe or listen to the latest episodes.
