Redesigns! We're looking for redesigns!

New school year, new site designs. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing screenshots of some of the online college news sites that have put on a new coat of digital pixie dust. If your media outlet has redesigned the web presence over the summer, drop me an e-mail at scmurley -at- to be included in the coverage.

First up in the box, the Boise State Arbiter. The Arbiter last redesigned when they moved off the College Publisher CMS in 2009. Here’s the earlier redesign:


And here’s the new redesign:


The new design looks clean. Fewer rounded corners, a little less blue, and I like that they’ve pushed more news to the top of the page with the addition of the middle rail of stories, while also focusing more attention on the main photo carousel as well.

What do you think? Feel free to comment below.
