WordPress.com has been updated with a new design. While much better than their old design, and another step in the right direction, I still feel like it looks too flat or too basic, and the new version looks a little too cluttered.
We’ve just taken the wraps off our new design for WordPress.com from Matt Thomas, so come check it out. This one incorporates a lot of what we’ve learned over the past year with the old design, which was actually supposed to be a temporary placeholder.
In this new design we’ve added a bit of color, more prominent use of avatars, better highlighting of popular content, and hot tags so people can see some of the latest posts in popular topics. (In different languages!)
Keep up the good work Matt T.
