Say Hello to Designer News 2.0

almost 2 years ago from , Publisher of Designer News

Just over a month ago, I wrote about becoming the proud new publisher of Designer News. Since then, I’ve hired an awesome team and we’ve been working through a redesign that we think you’re going to love. It’s a first step, there’s a lot of stuff on our list, but we wanted to share our process and get the community's feedback as we go.

Some of the great new improvements we’ve made:

  • An all new look and feel. Retina optimized, fully responsive for any screen-size, and completely rebuilt from the ground up.
  • Beautiful new weekly digest and registration emails.
  • Stories now have a slick, more obvious Upvote button. Try clicking it ;-)
  • The ability to add your company logo to job listings.
  • Hovering over a user’s name or avatar now displays details about their account (Karma, activity, where they work, etc).
  • The avatar designer has been rebuilt and has some fun additional functionality (right-click to reverse and CMD-click to erase).
  • Viewing the markdown cheatsheet is now much easier on story pages.
  • Hundreds of other small tweaks :-)

There are still a couple rough edges here and there, but we’re really excited about where Designer News is headed. We’ve still got a long way to go, and we’ve got a big list of features we want to add, but we’re feeling really good about where things are at.

We’re all really excited, and look forward to hearing from everyone and continuing to grow the Designer News community. Also keen to hear your feedback and suggestions, so please leave them below and we’ll reply ASAP.

-Andrew (+ Jody, Max, and Farzad)

    Hey Designer News team. I can't view or edit my profile. Can you please help me? When I try to access Profile, I get a page with 500 on it and red background.

    It would be great to see a status board of upcoming features being implemented or in progress! Search sucks, and I'm seeing some links posted multiple times (shouldn't it prevent duplicates within a certain time period?).

    I find out that the site is too stretch. I preffer to adjust the length of the line to my preference with the browser window. That's why I love sites like Reddit or Hacker news, mostly because of the fluid layout.

    Loving the redesign, it feels new but still the same. Congratulations, I can tell you guys put in a lot of work and are continuing to do so.

    I only have one issue.

    I visit design news quite frequently on my iPhone and there seems to a bug with the menu when swiping left and tapping a few of the menu links. Happens on both Safari and Chrome.

    Furthermore, I can't access account information or logout on both the browsers

    Apart from that, it's awesome.

    What I miss the most is seeing the job title of the poster, on the main feed. Seeing a post by "John Smith" gives me no context at all. Makes the name itself (not the user) relatively unimportant, imo. I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way :(

    2 remarks: - scan lines on the article list: please align your article titles as Wim Roegels below already mentioned. - increase contrast: If you strive for an optimal reading experience, please make sure text and background colors provide enough contrast -http://snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html#fg=33FF33,bg=333333 On a positive note: I'm a long time fan of the content this platform provides. :) Cheers.

    The majority of the hate mail here seems to float toward the voting button placement, because titles are more important, blah...blah...blah. Everyone is repeating the textbook crap, and yes, a detour for your eyes may put strain on them at times during, but I know damn well I'm not the only one who uses those votes to keep my ADHD in check.

    If someone can make it so I don't have to read a title to know I should read the article then good golly Miss Molly, please do not stand in the way. That there is what we like to call a good user experience.

    In fact, I would argue that the vote count is a more valuable piece of content than the title itself and, aside from the misalignment noted above, should not be changed at all.

    Hi Andrew,

    I got two feedbacks.

    1) Markdown reference guide should not overlay the whole comment section. Instead it should collapse un click/touch like reddit. Instead of copy/pasting I mostly type the lines.

    2) I there any way to take back my upvote on front page? Not that I want to but I wanted to repeat the animation by taking back my upvote and giving back but the button won't work again if you upvoted.

    I'm probably late to this thread, but overall I am glad that change is happening on DN. The old site was nice but it wasn't maintained and needed help with a lot of functionality. However, this new site has several visual changes that make it harder to read and focus on the content (which is why we come here).

    I did a quick Stylish theme to help with readability and feel a little more natural for me:

    DN News

    I'll try and summarize the issues I have:

    • The upvote buttons are really distracting. I get that you want to make them emphasized, but all my eye focuses on is those big boxes. It feels like you're wanting me to focus on upvoting rather than the reading the content
    • The reading pane is too small. Why is this 600px wide? I feel a lot of tension as I read threads with the narrow pane (and small margins/paddings).
    • The trendy logo and icons feel commercial. Though the original DN had these elements (before it was a trend), I don't see the need for it. It doesn't feel like it properly represents DN, which is a community of designers. There is no character in that. The outlined icons are also very hard to read and guess what they mean.
    • The "..." submenu is mobile pattern. I don't know why a mobile pattern is being used in a desktop environment, especially in the main navigation. In mobile, these are used due to limited screen space. You don't have that issue here and feels like an easy cop out.
    • The mobile version site doesn't feel intuitive. There were a lot of strange interaction on mobile (... menu, design jobs panel, navigation). You also have no way to logout or view your profile.

      You're never too late! We'll be keeping an eye on this thread for a while, and making changes based on feedback like this. Thanks for it, we're going to keep it in mind with future updates :)

      You also have no way to logout or view your profile.

      This was an oversight on my part. We're going to add this back in shortly.

    I don't think there was really a benefit in rolling out a DESIGNER NEWS 2.0 as a monster release, vs rolling out small, steady improvements.

    There's no need to bundle everything.

    Releasing something with an explosive number of feature changes, inevitably becomes a very tough thing for existing users to accept.

    Only major issue I have is that the icons are visually competing with the new score box. One of them needs to be a lot visually intense, whether in size and/or color. Personally I would get ride of the icon all together, I never know what the hell each icon stands for anyways.

    The only issue I'm personally having trouble with is the main bac toggle on mobile. The responsive time is a bit slow and the side scrolling is buggy.

    Other than that it's all very fresh and exciting look, thanks for refreshing the design but keeping the well known DN look!

    Excited about the new design.. But Please do make some changes to make it perfect.

    • Remove border of Upvote button and reduce left and right padding. so that our eye can actually scan the Title first not button.Once upvoted, make the color light grey or something.
    • Move MOTD to Top. Maan.. no reason to move it to down.
    • Remove zig zag effect caused of "Sponsor" => Why not add upvote feature for Sponsors also? Also change the Sponsor icon. it feels like Ask DN
    • Change the :visited color to a light grey, so when re-checking DN, we can easily know which one we already clicked.
    • Sidebar Ads? we use adblocker :P Sponsor is not enough?
    • Please reduce the comment box height on post page.Let it be auto height when adding content. because We can't see the comments first.

    Please consider the above things, and Make DN a better place, Andrew.

      Hey Surjith,

      Thanks for all the tweaks. Definitely stuff we're looking at—making shitloads of tweaks today.

      Re: The ads: Not sure if you know the story, but I bought Designer News from Layervault, which went bankrupt. At the time I bought it, it was losing thousands of dollars a month. In order to support continued work on the site, we need to have sponsorships, advertisers, and more activity on the job board. DN needs to turn into a proper business, just like Dribbble and other sites that stand on their own independently. That said, we're focused on only working with companies that are design-focused and that the community will be interested in. Hope that sheds some light :-)

    Jumping on the feedback bandwagon, my two cents: what are votes for, really? Are they indicators of the quality of the content, relevance, or discussion? Instead of votes, why not translate the number into something that adds context to the story, like 'heavily debated', 'topically relevant','mixed sentiment', etc. Seems to me votes have the same problem as star ratings: above or below a certain threshold of votes and we'll either engage with it or disregard it. Just my thoughts.

  • Dustin CartwrightDustin Cartwright, almost 2 years ago (edited almost 2 years ago )

    I've been reading DN since it's inception as that awkward side project from Layervault. It's growth to popularity, and the rise of quality content really set it apart from other sites. Designer News is it's content. so it's great to see the majority of tweaks are centered around that aspect as opposed to fleshing out other areas. I think the note that wasn't heard though is that DN is a news site first, and community second. Many users skim the homepage headlines and drill down on topics of interest. Slimming down the IA hierarchy has really destroyed that user flow sadly.

    A merge of old DN and new DN

    Having the headlines really stand out makes a world of difference in reading pleasure. If you're unsure, check out this shot of a cached version of DN earlier this month and compare it to today's homepage.

    Regardless of opinion, congrats on 2.0 and the (hopefully) many versions to come!

      Maybe I just got used to the old design, but my thoughts exactly... The first thing I did was to modify it with Stylish for Chrome. Two lines of css cleaned it up nicely for me:

      .story-list a.story-vote { float: right; margin: 0 -20px 0 0; } .story-meta { opacity: 0.4; }

        Exactly what I did. I'm keeping an eye on the comments here and adding tidbits in for bugs like the word-length thing below. The links are gone in the screenshot I posted, but I ended up repositioning the "top/recent" etc links over the white column just below the logo/nav.

    3 Suggestions:

    2. To make it easier to see a reply to my comment (especially in such a long one like this with hundreds of comments to search through.)

    3. To have a preview button before posting (in case you make a Markdown mistake). Github does a really nice job with that.

    good luck on the new design. Love a lot, other things could be improved from the few comments I read below. Tiny little thing: when logging in, it says very vaguely (low contrast) litterally: "I need Help". Just MHO, but I do not need professional help haha!

    Maybe improved upon by saying: "help needed?" or "In need of help?" or even just "help me"/"assist me"

    GL, I like this community alot!

    consistency in this matter could be created by having a design persona behind designer news. A character that would say these things "in character" so to say (like mailchimp). But you will know these things just as well as I do.

    I have to agree with every other criticism I've seen almost entirely, and would like to add that I realllllllly dislike the new long shadow logo thing and miss the lil face guy. The long shadow letters thing is so lazy - I would really expect DN to be better than to copy+paste trend, as I view DN as a home for excellence as its inhabitants are serious design professionals - many of whom have very impressive backgrounds. You don't find talent like this in other communities, so you should represent the community as such.

    I don't know if this is a direct result of the redesign or just the amount of traffic on this particular post - I believe the overall page load speed has taken a fairly dramatic hit.

    I never did any speed checks before, but I would be curious to see if there is actually a difference? I feel as though Stories take longer to load and occasionally don't at all, Here is a screenshot of the error I have received a couple of times.

    Keep up the great work!

    Firstly love your work and know how hard it is to get products into production. Well done all!

    Secondly as many have mentioned, I'm afraid that the key distinguishing feature of Designer News over other news sites has been lost in the update.

    The readability of the content.

    The interface is now more cluttered and has less whitespace and too much emphasis has been put on the interface controls rather than the content.

    I hope you re-consider this in the next phase of your work.

    A bit late to the conversation, but would it make sense to open source the site design?

    It would really make designing the site feel like a community effort. Features could even be voted on via the existing posting framework so that we can decide what new features or improvements to implement...

    Also, it wouldn't hurt to have the community help fix bugs as well. =)

    I like it - a nice evolution of what came before, with some modernisation and hints at where it could go. Like everyone else, there are a couple of things that bug me;

    • The vote button/box is too prominent - perhaps it doesn't need to be square? ~30px wide seems to make more sense.
    • The extra padding on the main column means that the content is pretty squished. Maybe, if you moved the left hand nav (which doesn't have much in it, ever) to above the main column, you could reclaim some space?
    • All the links/buttons could do with a hover state! Maybe the blue from the DN logo shadow, an underline, a row background change - something at least...

    Just my 2c.

    Awesome to see some updates. Navbar looks awesome.

    I check Designer News every day. I've never checked other "public voting" sites (Digg, Reddit, etc.) with the same frequency. I think it's largely because, as a reader, DN doesn't read like a popularity contest (even though it is). You can skim through the first page of links without noticing the upvote count.

    This redesign has such an obvious Upvote button that it kind of ruins that vibe. I'll probably still read every day, but I'm definitely going to feel gross about it now.

    Dear DN developer

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put that damn up-vote count box on the END of the TItle. UP-VOTES are not relevant, the TITLE is.

    THANK YOU .

    One comment, you could put the SVG logo embebed to the header instead calling it as a resource. It will be faster. The rest, I love most of the changes!

    Looks awesome. The only two things that aren't feeling great are:

    Tight padding/line-height on this page and the overly large, square vote box on the front page.

    First of all, congrats on the redesign Andrew and the team. A few things that I spotted on my end:

    • I'd bring back the faded a:visited state – it's a bit too subtle right now.

    • I find myself focusing more on the upvote box than the actual title of the article. Might be cuz of the border.

    • The auto-expanding comment box was a nice touch.

    Other than that, I agree with most of the things that were mentioned. Best of luck moving forward!

    Stays true to the original but feels more modern. I was just thinking yesterday some elements seemed outdated. Had some issues with the login bar in Safari, but now it works. Clearing cache didn't fix it at first, but now it started working all of a sudden.. So I guess all is well?

    Overall, this is looking good, but I have a few criticisms:

    • The upvote boxes seem to be fighting with the icons to their left, since they are both close in size and proximity. Together they just pull too much visual weight and feel a bit cluttered, making it harder to scan the story titles.

    • The article pages could use a wider line length, more padding/margin, and more leading/line-height.

    • We could use a little more vertical space between a comment reply and the parent comment.

    • The thin font in the header bar is rendering fine on Firefox, but very thin and pixelated in Opera and Chrome.

    To be honest, I'm really not feeling this update, but I can see that this is a major overhaul. In any case, I'd like to see more tweaks to the typography in terms of size and color. I miss the attention being given to user comments as opposed to other info (user name, upvoting, etc.) because I'm looking at everything and hierarchy's losing it for me.

    Great job! I'm still having some problems with the hovers states. I don't know how much research you guys did, but I think a great start should be observing how many time designers spend here, I read a lot of things here and try to access at least 2 or 3 times per day. I have some issues with readability and to create comments, it's not so easy/friendly. I love the way medium solve this problem, maybe it's a good case to study.

    Two issues on Firefox.

    • The left side of link badges are cut off.
    • Any comment pages with images causes the main (white) container to double in size and the whole layout to basically mess up.

    The site could use a bit more contrast. I can't tell the difference between the text in the comment text box and the rest of text on the page.

    The long shadow logo is also quite hypocritical since we introduced the "long shadow poop" badge a while back.

    EDIT: Firefox issues fixed. Many thanks!

    I'm not sure I like this change. I'm really not the type of person that hates change, in fact, I usually welcome it and laugh at people that whine about Facebook's layout changes, but I honestly don't know if I like this new look at all.

    It kind of feels bulky and all over the place. Like everything takes up too much space or there isn't enough space for things? I'm not sure how to explain it.

    The buttons/links all feel different. Some have shadows, some are green, some are blue, some are just text that underline one hover, some are just text that change colour on hover, it's really inconsistent.

    Also: Long shadow logo? D:

    I like it so far, definitely starting to feel more complete. I'm looking forward to the evolution over time.

    two pieces of critique - it is designer news after all!

    • I hope contrast can be increased a bit more over all, looots of grey.
    • I think the upvote buttons need to be more balanced compare to the topic icons, the hierarchy of the two is not quite right. because it's repeated many times on the page it should be more subdued because once you learn it, you may not want it in your face all the time. here is a small change to the style sheet that deemphasizes the buttons a tiny bit: balanced upvotes

    • The type in posts feels a bit cramped right now. I think a bit more padding would help the page not feel compressed and claustrophobic and make for a better reading experience: another small change to the style sheet that spaces out comments a bit: spacing in the comments

    feature requests:

    • comment previews

    • inline image uploading

    edit: I'm a fan of the long shadow: simple with character. Would be so cool to animate on hover

        To go deeper into this. I think the paradigm of an upvote button is pretty well established and might not need a button representation for this audience. I understand the goal of making it more obvious, but I wonder if lack of understanding was a barrier preventing people from participating in the voting. It could be cool to run an A/B test to see which design gets more engagement! I'd love to be proven wrong.

        Here's two quick ideas did in the CSS:

        I would say the most important information on the screen is the title of the article. At the moment all i see are upvote boxes. I think a huge fix would be moving them or changing their style.

        You may also want to take a look at your meta data on each article. It has great prominence even though it is not that important.

      I would move the upvote box to the right side. The natural flow would be: Read the headline > Sounds good > Upvote And the reading flow is way better, now it's really broken because some posts don't have the box and some have.

    IMHO I feel like this new design is leaning towards a 'reddit' structure with the focus on upvoting and downvoting, status etc. I guess it's important but some things that weren't addressed I feel were put sideline to making the site more 'upvotable'. Primarily the ability to have multi-level replies.

    What is the use of the hash at the end of a comment? Why hide so much in menus?

    I felt that there is some ambiguity in the menu content language: - Gallery - traditionally means images - 'Avatar Gallery' would make more sense? - Things - sort of makes sense? - Hall of Fame - shouldn't this show highest rated posts? - this is just a list of memorable quotes - I guess it makes sense.

    Random but I've never really understood the difference between stories and discussions. Isn't everything on this site 'open for discussion'?

    At the end of the day - my takeaway is that there is less focus on the actual stories, more focus on money generating design job links, and more focus on the social flagellation involved with up and downvoting.

    p.s. I agree with Andrew... Long shadow?? I guess as an homage to the original or early version?

    p.p.s. Take this with a grain of salt - markdown is nice but a simple WYSIWYG is better.

      I agree with you re: wording, something we can change. Those actually didn't change though—same as the old design.

      Random but I've never really understood the difference between stories and discussions. Isn't everything on this site 'open for discussion'?

      Discussions are non-link stories. For instance, like this one, where they are focused on commenting/sharing with the community/giving feedback instead of linking to an external site.

      p.p.s. Take this with a grain of salt - markdown is nice but a simple WYSIWYG is better.

      100% agree! Want to do WYSIWYG as soon as we can.

        p.s. I just noticed the increase in 'levels' with comments (or maybe didn't see it before)

        Thanks for the clarification with discussion vs stories!

        The long Shadow – It's almost a knee-jerk reaction at this point – to be honest I don't really have an issue and find it is oddly appropriate and nice in the top header logo. I feel like in the footer you lose me in the circle, maybe dropping it there would be worth taking a look at?

        p.s. any by WYSIWYG editor I don't mean anything fancy - I like the approach google inbox uses (if it was visible all the time instead of being hidden in a hover/click button) - just the essentials:

        • bold
        • italic
        • (NOT UNDERLINE)
        • lists
        • links
        • maybe code

        I wouldn't even include headings.

    Awesome stuff! Pretty cool redesign. Found some pretty cool stuff, you can now see individual comments on it's own page. I can see this being super useful when the discussion goes on it's own track like this

    My feedback I think the main story contrast can be a little bit better seeing that the links and the right hand jobs list have a stronger contrast. Kinda takes the eye away a little. It's in the right direction though, more pleasant to read.

    Here's a bug for you. Btw, is the site loading really slow for anyone else?

      Also, I think you should add more padding to the article to improve readability. Making it around 60-80 characters per line would not only make it easier to read but less tiring too.

    I could wax and gush about this design because I really love your work, and perhaps I’m off, but hopefully as business people with an insane passion for the design community, you will appreciate some brutally honest feedback that is without emotional attachment to the previous design.

    I don’t mind change, it’s just...

    As a user, the change must have value, utility and be appropriate for the psychological context it exists in. I do not feel any of these changes have accomplished any of those measures.

    In fact, the reverse has happened.

    I really enjoyed the easy readability and scanability of the previous design and layout.

    As a visitor hitting the homepage, the element of a news/ community site I am most concerned about in this case is the title. That's it.

    If a title catches my attention, I will click. That's about it.

    I assume most others initially consume news and participate in communities in a similar fashion. You love Sketch, you may click on a title containing the word Sketch.

    Thus, most sites designed for consuming news or participating in a community prioritize the readability of headlines. Even Reddit or HN upvote controls are more muted.

    Perhaps another signal would be comment count.

    We are human. We are drawn to crowds as they grow.

    “What’s everyone saying”

    We are human. I believe we are more drawn to enticing headlines than a chorus of loud numbers broadcasting over the headlines.

    While the chorus of icons in the previous design did add a little value, their repetitious use dulls my eyes, coupled with the loud priority and visual style of the upvote count blocking my scan path, it is frankly, a disincentive to even bother scanning to read the headline at all.

    Scanning headlines and having to stumble over that vote count on every line feels like work.

    This much priority and visual volume being broadcast by the icons and the upvote counts is surprising to me. It's difficult to block out and focus on the headlines.

    Upvote is useful. Perhaps it’s one of the best signals we have to collectively mine for quality, but then again - - it feels like a signal in a state of atrophy that is gamed and exploited.

    In the case of commenting, quality doesn’t always win over the “witty” “snarky” snipes that vacuum up the votes and create shallow communities.

    Maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall ever seeing “Best” “Worst” “First” “Last” sorting for comments in the previous design?

    If they did exist before, thankfully I never noticed them.

    Worst comment - wow, just seems - - negative and unnecessary.

    It feels counter-community to me. It feels counter-quality. It feels like a disincentive to contribute. It feels like troll fuel to gain up on others and punch with the same old shallow snark.

    As others have said, the actual readability of the content itself is in serious jeopardy.

    Everything is unnecessarily crowded. Line height is not to standard, and so on.

    I really appreciate you all picking up the torch for DesignerNews and carrying on the community. Thank you.

    I hope you will take some of this feedback for your consideration and look forward to more from you all.

    Cheers.

        I like most of the improvements and some were sorely needed. Totally agree about the readability, finding it a lot harder to read comment threads now. The forced anti-aliasing makes the comment text extremely hard to read (I'm not on a retina display) and the commenter name, title, comment text, meta info all seem to blend together too well, not enough contrast between those elements, imo. I wonder whether this a conscious decision to nudge people towards writing longer responses?

        [edit] Just saw that quotes are 12px!

        So yeah definite round of polish needed on readability, but looks like things are in good hands going forward :)

        +1 I like the redesign overall and these are great tweaks! At the very least, the upvote button needs to be moved to the right, since it's not more important to see at a glance than the story title. FWIW I'd personally also shrink the story type icon since it feels to me like it just adds noise. I know getting that right would be tricky though!

        Having two icons in a row then the text that I want to read makes my brain hurt. I think its particularly bad when you have two bright non complementing colored icons next to a subdued heading.

        Also does the number even matter, shouldn't i be "liking" it based on merit rather following the numbers, assuming that articles with more interest appear further up the page.

In fact, what worse way to establish the idea that DN will remain true to itself despite changing hands than to do a redesign? The criticisms I've seen are much more educated and well articulated than you would find elsewhere on the internet, as well, and there are several people who quite like it. I have a a few opinions on things I do and do not like, but issues like thread readability are hardly something you would want to reduce to "opinions" unless you're fine with the idea that design has no objective qualities and can't be judged by any objective metric - making our careers all essentially nonsensical.

      I can add to this: * Never give feedback * Never care about a place you hang out * Confuse critique with criticism * Assume everyone expects every suggestion to be implemented * Use all caps to over-simplify

      I'm poking fun, even as I recognize I'm doing it with snark. That people give enough of a damn to offer feedback, propose changes with visual work they put into it, and actually react is - wait for it - a good thing! The worst - the kiss of death - is when there is no reaction at all. And if we're surprised at a flood of opinions from a room full of designers, well, meet designers :)

    This is going to be a weird point / a bit abstract, but: I feel like this redesign misses the personality of the way blues have been used. It's always given me this feeling:

    It most certainly doesn't now - and that makes me sad.

    Edit: How do I have -1 points on a site that has no downvotes?
