The long awaited revamp of The New York Times’ website will take place on January 8. In an announcement, Denise Warren, the Times’ executive VP of digital products and services, said that the new NYTimes.com will be customizable, sleeker and faster than the current one.
The new site also gives the Times the ability to add digital products more easily. “With this redesign, not only are we refreshing the look and feel of our public-facing site, but we have also laid down the foundation that gives us the ability to regularly iterate and enhance the user experience on NYTimes.com,” explained Warren.
We’re excited about the change; especially the cleaner look. As we’ve already seen from previews of the site, there is a welcome influx of white space on the new version.
The Times said some users will be seeing the new site as early as today. If you’re one of the lucky ones, please send us some screenshots. We’d love to get a look at it.
