    There is a big difference between magazines and the web. In magazines the presentation of each feature article is a new design. The graphics, the layout, the artwork, everything is carefully assembled and designed (that word again) to support the content. On the web this is almost completely gone. Just about every article is fed through the same template and illustrated using the same hero-img and float-img blocks that every other article on the site has, which results in a homogeneity between articles that fails to compel potential readers and a sense that the web as a whole is boring.
