Well out with the old and in with the new, i’ve just done a pretty significant overhaul of the Tcritic look and feel. My main purpose and motivation to do this was to find a look and feel that put the graphics front and center and this design is really about the home page where thumbnails from recent posts are put in a grid so you can scan the images from the posts. I was very much inspired by the guys from Rumplo who’s entire front page is just graphics of the t-shirts and i thought that worked great. I also really liked the Cool Hunting layout, and the way they use thumbnails for related posts (which i’m working on). Also this provides a very cool view of the archives, check out the Good Design archive for an idea of how they will look.
Love to get your feedback, i’ve already taken the top banner off the home page because some people thought it looked cluttered, cheers, Karl.
