What is your favorite blog / online magazine grid and why ?
http://blog.squarespace.com/ I like the pretty cool navigation and the system of articles/cards.
http://www.milkmagazine.net/ has a nice clean grid mixing texts and images
http://thenextweb.com/ last template is pretty nice. The use of the left column for navigation and working as a "ticker" is cool. Typos are big enough, easy to read. Ads are not too intrusive which makes it easy to read.
A List Apart for me. Simple, bold and good use of illustrations. I find the new version of The Great Discontent difficult to read. It's all a bit too shouty, though I do applaud their effort to make something unique.
I love The Great Discontent as it focuses on the last interview and the use of pictures / typos is pretty nice. My only concern is that it's not easy to find older interviews https://thegreatdiscontent.com/
