w3.org (redesign)

w3org

This is the newly redesigned w3c.org website (not too new, but newish). I really like this design in many ways, at the same time it’s just too dang full of info. I know that’s hard NOT to do, it’s the wc3 after all. I love the grid, and the way the info is presented in a logical manner. I also think the different style sheet selection across the top is pretty cool too. I think in many ways they stretched with a lot of the interactions, I think more simplicity would go a long way on a site like this. The information still feels pretty spread out and people who are new to the wc3 look like they still might get a bit lost in the content. Over all though, this is a great face lift to a really huge site that’s been needed for a long long time.
