Sports Illustrated Revamps Website

Sports Illustrated’s website has received a complete overhaul. The site is cleaner, but also has a distinctly mobile feel with a clickable menu in the upper left hand corner of the page.

How you feel about the new SI.com will likely depend on how you feel about sites made for phones and tablets. In a lot of ways, the new SI.com looks like two other Time Inc. sites — Time.com and Money.com. Those sites were revamped with mobile readers in mind, and clearly, SI.com followed their lead.

We do appreciate how single articles look — they’re given plenty of space for text and a large picture. This update allows you to feel more focused on the article than the previous SI.com did.

Bottom line: SI.com might not be the prettiest update, but it is a step up from the old site.
