Grantland’s Makeover is a Success

Grantland, the sports/pop culture site from Bill Simmons, has a new look. Gone is the white background, replaced by a yellowish silly putty color (trust us, we consulted the official FishbowlNY silly putty for verification). The banner of a guy swinging a bat has also disappeared; only the site’s title remains. The content is also more streamlined than before.

So what do we think of Grantland 2.0? We like the change. It’s much easier to navigate and find what you’re looking for. Before we’d be scanning down the middle for articles, only to be distracted by the links and articles running along both sides.

We’ve been a fan of Grantland since it launched, and now — with the content more organized — the updated look has us giving the site a standing ovation. Well, sort of. We definitely imagined doing that, and then just typed it. Which is pretty much the same thing.
