Quietly creeping across my radar today was a sleek new update of Creative Review’s website. While their previous site was feeling more dated day by day, this is a great move in a good direction. While content used to feel a bit awkwardly crammed into html before (with a terrible media viewer at the top of each page), content now feels like some care has been taken to display it well on the screen. Content is also easy to find, and enjoyable to browse. In fact the blog content now seems to blend into the rest of the content almost unnoticeably.
For a more detailed overview of what’s changed, see the Creative Review blog post on the new site design.
With more video content getting published, a more usable website is clearly a great way to get this content in front of viewers. But at the same time the current issue content is also given center stage. Photographs of page spreads help to sell more subscriptions right?
All in all a great site with a superb execution of grid, information design, and of-course great content. Do give it a browse.
