Slate Gets a Redesign

If you visit Slate today, you’ll notice that the site has undergone a massive revamp. Slate has discarded its old look that featured a carousel of big stories for a slew of articles organized by sections and writers. On the right readers can find the most recently published pieces. Images are larger and Slate now uses responsive design.

One of the goals of the update was to clean everything up. “Over the years a website can become encrusted with gunk: Modules and widgets and text links and boxes wedge their way into every corner of the site,” explained Slate’s editor, David Plotz, in a note about the changes. “We wanted to start over and try a cleaner approach that would make a┬áSlate┬ápage feel like a calm oasis in the helter-skelter of the Web.”

The thing is, this new Slate feels more cluttered than ever. There are more articles to identify when you go to the homepage, and we found the way things were organized to be confusing.

On the bright side, we do love the way articles look; that’s definitely an upgrade. The headline stands out more and the font is much easier on the eyes.

Overall though, Slate’s new look somehow leaves us underwhelmed and overwhelmed at the same time.
