That actually looks really bad. My eyes hurt.
- Layout/Grid is misplaced, too many large gaps for "sponsored ads"
- The font is hard to read, looks fine on my retina display, but on a regular display looks faded.
- Logo looks a lot like Ansible's logo.
I actually really like it, though I bet it will be a shock for Abduzeedo fans though! I always felt that their colourful branding distracted from the material they were presenting. This certainly won't.
Plenty of CSS bugs tho. I'm sure they'll catch those.
Sad to see abduzeedo fall into the same trend-trap. Monospace fonts and loose grids! Yay! Make it artsy-ish.
I have visited ABDZ for pretty much everyday for the past 7 years. This is the first time I have really been angry over a redesign. Trends die and I can to a certain extent understand the pressure to keep up and there will come a time where they will have to redesign to support new techs and platforms.
The previous version just worked and from the sidelines I could/can see no reason to change it.
ABDZ have said however that it is an experiment and that they are willing to make adjustments or go back to the old design based off of testing and feedback.
Definitely not liking the new layout. A lot harder to focus on imagery and inspiration and that typeface is really hard to read, especially on long descriptive paragraphs.
Interesting that the previous redesign before this was also around January (2014) as well. ref: https://web.archive.org/web/20140401000000*/http://abduzeedo.com
Didn't it used to be about inspiration? Why's it more focused on titles than imagery now?
I like it, but I'm confused: What's the deal with the Tumblr integration?
On the surface it looks like it's a Tumblr blog now, but it's still Drupal under the hood. It doesn't function like a Tumblr blog (you can't like posts; the URLs; images are hosted on the abduzeedo domain), so why put the Tumblr menu on there?
It seems they are using their 'rawbdz' Tumblr account for submissions, so if you do follow it, you're not necessarily going to be following the blog you expected.
Anyone else find this strange?
