Indiewire's Redesign: A Less Busy & Bluer Version of The Hollywood Reporter

Posted 3:25 PM November 10th, 2011 by Senh Duong

Indiewire just launched their redesign earlier this week. It has a cleaner and more elegant look. It also kinda reminds me of The Hollywood Reporter, except less busy and with blue accented text .

Sections are well-organized. Most pages have blocks for the latest comments and twitter updates.

What I think needs improvement are the individual article pages. They look kinda bare. When you’re done reading an article, there’s nowhere else to go. Listing similar articles and/or the latest articles on the right sidebar or below the article would entice the reader to continue reading and generate more pageviews.

Like any redesign, it also comes with a few bugs. Just a couple days ago, links from RSS feeds were broken; today, it’s working fine.

Overall, I like it. It’s an improvement over their previous version.
