It looks like I wasn’t the only one who thought that nbcnews.com’s last redesign was a disaster. Less than six months after radically redesigning their site, nbcnews.com has changed yet again, but this time for the better.
Gone is the layout designed only for mobile devices, with huge images everywhere and stories seemingly randomly scattered about. The latest design is closer to their old layout where stories are categorized, with a better use of space. They also left out a feature of the design prior to the last layout where a block of code above the header was hidden, forcing you to scroll up to see it after the page loaded. Anyone else using that pattern? I don’t think so.
So far, out of nbcnews.com’s last three layout changes, this is the best. We’ll see what they do next. Latest layout:
