A nice upgrade.

The new site has a refined logo, an updated home page and a new design system — called Pathways — that impacts everything the site does.

“The first place you’ll notice the new Pathways language is on the homepage and article pages, which are all built on the next generation of Chorus, codenamed Unison,” wrote Verge editor Nilay Patel, in a post about the redesign. “There is so much to say about Unison, which has been a years-long project inside Vox Media, but the thing you’ll see first is that the web pages it creates are faster. Much, much faster: 25-50 percent faster in our early tests.”
