Webdesigner Depot Redesign (now with apps)

March 23, 2016 Website design News 0

After many months of hard work, this week we’ve unveiled our latest redesign…

When Webdesigner Depot first launched in 2010, the Web was a very different place. Back then, the way we all consumed content online was radically different. The last few years have seen an explosion in mobile use, and a huge diversification of technology. The new Web needs a new Webdesigner Depot.

Long term readers will recognize the same features they’ve always enjoyed, but we hope that our new additions will prove equally popular. Our redesign should feel “familiar” to our most loyal readers and at the same time faster, fresher and different.

The layout has been simplified, enabling a more consistent experience across a full range of devices and viewports. The site looks great both on desktop and mobile devices, especially on smartphones where the entire design has been reworked for a better mobile experience.

Adverts have been moved beneath the fold, to give greater focus to the latest stories. The new hierarchy makes it easier to discover new stories.

Articles now display their estimated total reading time as well as the option to read them in either a serif or sans serif font by controlling this via the right floating sidebar.

While we were redesigning the site, we took the opportunity to reflect on our branding. We’ve reworked our color palette to create a more engaging contemporary experience with blue hues and the familiar yellow tones. We’ve also changed our logo, simplifying its shape to increase legibility, especially on mobile devices.
