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.
