Some of you may have noticed the new home page on MyPunchbowl.com. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I’d encourage you to do so before reading this post.
I have many thoughts about the new home page design, but there’s one that keeps creeping to the front of my brain. Design is hard. Really, really hard. If you’ve never done it before, you’ll probably look at the new home page and say “yeah, that makes sense, looks pretty easy.” If you have done design before, you’ll notice the 100 little things that make this design look so right.
I think back to the first home page design of MyPunchbowl.com and just how far we’ve come. I’m thrilled with what we’ve learned about good design, and really proud of our new home page. And that’s not all: since we launched our new home page, our signup traffic is up by more than 40%. Ultimately, this is the true measure of success.
So take a look and notice the 100 little things: and then email your friends and tell them to check it out. Thanks.
