See LIVESTRONG.COM’s New Homepage & 5 Past Looks
By JESS BARRON
We gave the LIVESTRONG.COM homepage a whole new look for 2016. The new design is a cleaner, more modern look that surfaces even more daily healthy food ideas, exercise routines, motivations and wellness tips to help our readers live healthier and happier.
The “content cards” are intended to look a bit like Polaroid pictures. Do you like or loathe the new design? Is there something different you want to see on our homepage? Or is there something important you aren’t able to find? (Let us know by leaving a comment at the bottom of this piece, or simply send us a message us on our Facebook page.)
For those of you signed up to receive our LIVESTRONG.COM Editor’s Letter email newsletter, we wanted to give you a heads-up that we’ll also be launching a redesigned version of the newsletter that is coming in the next week or so. Be ready for more ch-ch-ch-changes!
And please, let us know what you think. Don’t be shy. Everything we do — we do it for you! (Yeah, it’s a cheesy song lyric, but it doesn’t mean the sentiment isn’t 100% true. And now you might have a 1991 Bryan Adams song in your head. You’re welcome.) To get that out of your brain, peep at these pictures of the different looks we’ve dressed LIVESTRONG.COM up in over the past 5 years... Which do you like best?
