Wired Revamps Site

This is how you do a redesign.

Wired’s site just got a complete makeover. The site features responsive design, a cleaner look and six sections, including Business, Design, Entertainment, Gear, Science, and Security. It’s the first Wired.com redesign since 2007.

Each Wired.com section has its own unique appearance; it gives the site the feel of a newspaper, which is a different and welcome approach. The sections now constantly refresh with content. In a note about the revamp, editor Scott Dadich explained that “the new section fronts should become your dashboards for the day’s news and feature stories.”

The new Wired.com is also swift — testing revealed that pages loaded 16 times faster.

The revamp was two years in the making, and judging by our exploring, the team nailed it.
