Dear SB Nation:
'Posted this over at MMA Mania, but wanted more people to see it.
At best, this took me about an hour or so.
(Click to enlarge.)
Summarily, I tried to solve these following redesign flaws.
- There's no clear article heirachy
- Banner for featured content is way too big
- Everything is scattered quite oddly
- Far too much empty white space
- Starting a new Fan Post is more difficult
- Too many extraneous sidebars
To be clear, I don't hate the redesign. It has good elements, but annoying execution. If it look me an hour to do this, I would hope it's not too hard for SB Nation.
Hopefully, this recommendation provides an easy way to make things somewhat cleaner without having to invest huge amounts of development time and manpower.
PS: That one's free. You're welcome.
