Ontario OUT OF DOORS magazine, published by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) has relaunched its website, the first upgrade since the magazine was purchased from Rogers Publishing in December 2008. The revitalization of the magazine's web presence has been a prime focus since editor-in-chief Lezlie Goodwin joined in October 2012, according to a release. The team that managed the largely in-house relaunch included web editor April Scott-Clarke and art director Tamas Pal.
“Our revitalized website is part of Ontario OUT OF DOORS commitment to digital content,” said [managing editor Ray] Blades. “The redesign incorporates a user-friendly experience that offers quick and easy access to content from our province’s best outdoor writers. It’s also now compatible with mobile devices.”
“Ontario OUT OF DOORS magazine has long been the go-to publication for the province’s anglers and hunters. Now, our website offers that same level of top-notch content and stunning photography,” said Goodwin. “Visitors to the website and the community forum [www.oodmag.com/community] will experience greater ease of use and many new features. I’m sure you’ll enjoy what we come up with over the next several months to continue to make the site bigger and better.”OFAH is the oldest and largest non-profit, non-government fish and wildlife organization in Canada, representing more than 100,000 members. (It acually started OOD in 1969, sold it in 1985 to Maclean Hunter and bought it back from MH's successor, Rogers Publishing, in 2008.)
