Reductress.com is the first and only fake women's news magazine. We parody the entertainment, advertising, and other media sources that women consume daily.

Reductress was born from the talents of Beth Newell, Sarah Pappalardo, Trammell Scruggs, and a host of hilarious writers. But our core team needs your help with a full site redesign and a mobile app. We've put a lot of blood, sweat, and hormonal tears into the site so far, and we want to make our site better for you.

$15 - EXCLUSIVE Outtakes Reel of REDUCTRESS PRESENTS: BEST FRIENDS EVER WITH JANEANE GAROFALO

$75 - 18x24" Poster of "8 Sex Positions that will Blow His Mind and Destroy His Penis"

$100: EDITOR-APPROVED, WEARABLE REDUCTRESS T-SHIRT

Our Team:

Sarah Pappalardo - UX/UI Overlord, Designer, Producer

Sarah has over 5 years experience in mobile and traditional web production, with a specialization in UX/UI. She will be designing and producing the project. Sarah and Trammell teamed up to develop phase one of Reductress, which is the site you see today.

Beth Newell - Content Manager, Editorial Director

Alongside Sarah, Beth will be managing the content direction and user experience for the app.

Trammell Scruggs - Developer, Yogi, Token Male

Trammell is our lovely systems administrator and developer, with experience in front-end and mobile development. Trammell has done everything from producing large-scale corporate apps and mobile websites to developing the Reductress site itself.

Risks and challenges

We're constantly running 30 minutes late to everything.

In spite of that, we are a lean team of ladies (and one dude) with years experience in the world of interactive, editorial and comedy. Since our team is already in place, we face few obstacles in completing our goal by the end of 2013.

Unless someone spills margarita on the servers again. Then we're screwed.
