We rolled out some updates today. I'm going to tell you about some of them.
Story pages, like the one you're on right now, are more readable. We've aimed at roughly 65-75 characters per line without making fonts clown-sized.
Comments now have your job titles, which helps provide a little context for what you're reading. It's a nice addition.
Try visiting DN on your iPhone. Things are more tidy now.
There are a number of other small design changes that I'll let you guys discover on your own. Designer News is a work-in-progress and something we really enjoy working on. There's a long way to go and you're going to see a lot of small iteration while we continue to try to get things right.
