Upworthy is a news site with a difference. Taken straight from their site: “At best, things online are usually either awesome or meaningful, but everything on Upworthy.com has a little of both. Sensational and substantial. Entertaining and enlightening. Shocking and significant.” In other words, it shows you what you want to see, not what you’re told to. That said, the site’s design can be a little jarring when used to scout for stories and Jaslin Tonton has took it upon himself to clear this up.
Focusing on a much improved header, Jaslin introduces a clean navigation with a good focus on searching rather than a huge logo then everything underneath. The massively improved navigation slides out from the side of the page and is clearly much better than the one on offer currently, allowing the user a clearer choice of links with only the site links missing from the list. The headlines, as attention grabbing as ever, are tuned down to allow the image to have a better impact The video page is much improved also, allowing the video to have centre of attention, and allow for easy sharing and subscription without taking away from the content.
