The Apple Addicts over at Macworld.com, the website for the popular Macintosh magazine, have been busy redesigning their site. And it really needed a redesign.
Let’s start with the header. Here’s what the new header looks like:
Note that the logo says “BETA” next to it now. The horizontal navigation is similar to that of Apple.com, though with a bit of a twist. Overall, the header looks pretty good.
Down the page a bit, they’ve got a cool tabbed box with highlighted content.
The “Top User Rated” section adds a bit of a community aspect, in a Digg-like manner. It’s a nice touch, though it might be cooler if it was the default tab, rather than the “Top Stories.” I doubt Macworld would want to make that change, though.
There’s plenty of content packed onto the homepage, perhaps too much. It’s not too crowded though. The sections are layed-out well, and it’s fairly easy to find what you’re looking for.
The new design looks pretty good. Take a look at the full design by visiting Macworld.com, and if you want to compare it to the previous design, head over to the Wayback Machine.
