From Design Week to cricket championships, Daylife has helped dozens of publishers build pop-up event portals in hours.
Add to that growing list Michael Surtees’ Tour de France portal, a one-stop shop for every imaginable dimension of media coverage on the holy grail of cycling.
The displays a rich mix of both automated and curated photos, headlines, quotes, tweets, related topics, and videos. Visitors can also drill down to navigate latest media by cyclist, as seen on this page covering Lance Armstrong (featured below).
Incredibly, Michael Surtees, designer director for Daylife and publisher of DesignNotes, built the Tour de France portal in “less than an hour.” Granted, Surtees is clearly at home with the Daylife toolset, but it’s still notable given the site’s breadth.
Asked about why he built the portal, Surtees said:
There were a couple reasons why I created the site. I wanted to create a simple site that I could get all the up to date news on the tour. I didn’t want to jump around from site to site so by collecting all the info in one place I could pick and choose what I wanted to read quickly.
Surtees also exploited Daylife’s new Editor’s Picks feature, creating a ‘best of’ photos page and curated quotes Page.
The Tour de France goes until July 26th, and audience favorite Lance Armstrong is currently in 2nd place. Bookmark the Tour de France portal to stay informed the whole way through.
