Curbed LA introduced a bold new look today, bringing the site more in line with others in the company's spreading empire, with more obvious links to the sister sites. We've got a major re-visualizing in the works ourselves (maybe), so I'm interested in some of their choices. From the explainer:
Since Curbed LA launched in November 2005, the visual look of this site has changed little. That was, until early this morning when the switch flipped on the aesthetic overhaul now seen before you. Do come in and make yourself comfortable.
For readers of Eater LA, the design will be familiar—it's a look based on the new feel brought to that family of blogs last month. For those who haven't seen this new look before, couple quick notes. We're aiming to make it easier to access recent news about individual neighborhoods—look for clear neighborhood links to the right of each post, and a full neighborhood list down the right column.
Check it out. I notice they're now segregating anonymous comments from those left by registered visitors.
