TechCrunch Reinvents Itself by Going Green

One of the sites I fre­quent, TechCrunch, has emerged with a redesign.

TechCrunch, found­ed on June 11, 2005, is a weblog ded­i­cat­ed to obses­sive­ly pro­fil­ing and review­ing new web 2.0 prod­ucts and com­pa­nies. In addi­tion to new com­pa­nies, we will pro­file exist­ing com­pa­nies that are mak­ing an impact (com­mer­cial and/or cul­tur­al) on the web 2.0 space. TechCrunch is edit­ed by Michael Arring­ton, who also writes a com­pan­ion blog, Crunch­Notes.

This time around, things seems to be quite green. Oth­er notable fea­tures of the redesign would be that the main-con­tent area got moved from the cen­ter, to the left. Fol­low­ing that, most of the ads were then flanked on the right, which used to be on the left and right sides of the main-con­tent.

I don’t know what it is, but the green skin just reminds me too much of Tech­no­rati’s. Besides that, I think the font-size and line-height improves on usabil­i­ty from the last ver­sion. Although, I kind of am still used to the sub­tle, nat­ur­al col­ors of the last one. Any­ways, con­grats to Michael and cre8d design/Rachel Cun­liffe on the launch.

Here’s what Mike Run­dle have to say about the TechCrunch redesign.
