Love the new layout layout, Alex. It's great and easy to find what your after. The new messaging and comment features are a really and asset, especially with all the layout options (which I haven't tried yet).
I'm also glad you went back to the more conventional ad system rather than the initial spash screen.
Great job to the entire team who put this together!
I couldn't agree more. I am so happy with the look and feel of the new DesignNews.com and look forward to interacting with our engineering community on a higher level. Thank you to everyone that helped make this new site a success!
Alex, I agree with all of the posts below. The new layout is much cleaner and makes reading the content easier on the eye. I also like the new menu links which seem to streamline the navigation process of the site as well.
