They have this design now for months has been discussed on DN for a couple times. Although, I really like the overall look and feel of the website.
This is a slight update, following Topolski leaving. Quite a few of the flashy animated parts have disappeared.
it's a completely revamped homepage. much less weirdness, much more content-dense.
The older homepage was more engaging and felt positive to interact with. The newer homepage fits more content into a view area (makes me think of Drudge), but the headlines are fighting a bit among everything else. Also the photos are so tiny.
Still looks great and perhaps this new layout is more practical. My 2¢
I think for a large amount of content, it looks absolutely stunning.
I want to hear the behind the scenes of what happened here. They launched a fucking BOLD try at a news homepage, which is nearly impossible to pull off in modern media organizations (I know, I've tried), and now the reins have been pulled way back. It's still very good, but it's no longer bold. Bloomberg design team AMA?
probably has a lot to do with it.
On one of the sites I referenced in the (I know, I tried) no less :P
The social icons animation is terribly distracting.
Does the layout very from day to day? I feel like that must be a tremendous CMS dev challenge.
Everything is more compact, less parallax, especially left column is now attached to middle one. As an active Bloomberg reader, I like it. Previous version to compare with imgur.com/IhtR787.png
