Spot.us Unveils New Skin


Spot.us, the non-profit, community-funded journalism endeavor from David Cohn, unveiled a redesign today.

Writes Cohn in a release:

Although it’s the middle of winter, we’ve undergone a website rebirth! Hopefully, you’ll find Spot.Us’ 3.0 design easier to navigate and nicer to look at. We know looks aren’t everything, but it certainly helps to put a worthy frame around the great stories that our community of reporters are producing with your support.

At first glance, it looks pretty good. The redesign is image heavy, putting fewer stories front and center, in favor of giving the ones that are up there more play. We’ll see how that plays out over the long haul.
