Very curious to see this brand redesign — love how prominently type design factors into so many of these projects lately (i.e. Dropbox, etc).

The design looks more like an old school newspaper. Interesting move.

@rrhoover Seems like a backwards move to me... Doesn't seem to be mobile-first design. My new local news site has responsive design and is focused on mobile, we are now seeing 95% mobile traffic. That's how to prepare for the next 5-10 years, not by launching a tabloid... And no I'm not posting my new co. on ProductHunt yet- want to wait for our app. AdaptBN.com

I'm loving the new Guardian Headline font, there's something almost retro about it, but it feels very clean and minimalist.

The flat/material style is increasingly irrelevant and will go the way of Bootstrap style, big heros, etc. At least in my opinion. Maybe the direction MS is going in but it is still way too bulky and disorganized. I like this approach because it brings us back to our roots as a nation, ie; strong Rosie vibes. maybe im projecting...

EDIT: this redesign is bemusingly controversial

Pros:

This is absolutely wonderful. A throwback to retro design while still staying modern. Great job!

Cons:

There are some serious padding issues going on here... Why is everything so close to each other? Also, not to be harsh, but the footer hurts my eyes.
