A surprisingly much simpler layout for the new Rollingstone website. I love the grid & modular design. Using the logo in the header area as a background image like that is also really nice. The logotype is so recognizable we don’t need to see the entire thing to know what it is. They’ve also managed to not blind us with ads – superb! Overall I think it’s a really great redesign, some really good decisions layout and type wise.
