The concept is in the attachments
This is my concept for a new homepage for IMDb. Their current website is great for finding information and all, but after several years of adding more and more content, their design is getting a little old and could use some more love.
With this new concept for IMDb I wanted to create a simpler design with a more cinematic feeling to it. It needed to be clean and simple but also be capable of showing a lot of information. So besides organizing and restyling the information on the homepage, i also tried something else and added a big custom header with the possibility to watch a full screen trailer in your browser that scales automatically, without opening a Lightbox pop-up first.
Please check out both attachments for the complete designs.

Nice clean and clear redesign. I like the colors too.
PS: One extra like for featuring Drive/Ryan Gosling. ;)
Love this! Been using IMDb for years and always wanted to make it easier to navigate but with the amount of content its a very daunting task. Well done :)
u nailed it bro!
Awesome work @Bart Ebbekink , they really need to use this!
Stunning! Is this going to be online some day? I'll love to waste hours on that page looking previews and stuff.
a very nice exploration! the only weak part are all the ui elements like boxes, tabs etc... which lack a bit of courage imho :) they're almost invisible, if you cross your eyes all that you can see are pictures. Maybe I'd try experimenting more with stronger typography and colors. Anyways, nice!
Just awesome. Too bad, it's not live :(
Amazing work mate!
Great work. I always switch to my iPad app for IMDB 'cause the website is just too ______. This is way better! But what happend to the standard Yellow and Black colour of IMDB? I miss them strong and contrast rich colours...
i love the advanced index.. it's clean and well organised, especially the player is stunning.. Not sure about the purple though..
Nice one bro, still it can better if you put in some more time, adding more features to it. But i really liked the overall styling and use of colors, spacing and textual presentation.
Thank you guys for your feedback @Harmen and @Rob Smittenaar
About the color combinations... I used a slightly different yellow than is used on the current website. This is a more fresh and pure color then the current brown/yellow. I also was looking for a second color to use, because yellow is not the most viewable color to use on white, and black would make it to dark and i wanted to keep it clean. If you look at their apps, and current website you see they have also trouble displaying their H1 in yellow because they made it a different color then their main logo color...
That is why i choose this purple / blue. It is fresh, has a nice contrast and is readable.
@Kartik Mahant ✦✦✦ You are right mate :) But time is money... and money is running short. ;) It's just a little preview of what can be done different. (or what i can do)
@Bart Ebbekink your right man, time is money. Great layout though.
Looks stunning! wish the site was like this great job
Wow, this is great! :)
Beautiful design but doesn't really suit their business model.
I don't understand why people forget to instill practicality when creating similar 'dream' concepts. Look at how much of IMDb's homepage is devoted to advertising for Amazon (their owner). What was your reasoning for leaving this out of your site design? How would you expect the site to be profitable with this redesign?
While I am impressed with your work as a whole I find it limited. Try to find creative solutions to their current advertising method, rather than omitting it, to really take this to the next level. Until then, it will only be a dream.
@Marc Nash Thank you for your feedback. I totally know what you mean. I left out the advertising for Amazon, and their own iOS and Android apps on purpose because i want it to be clean as a whole and not filled with advertising. So i totally agreeing with you, but like you said, it is only a dream, but it's mine ;)
Adding advertising won't be difficult though because the whole website is build on blocks, and you can add, remove blocks as you like. So advertising can also be added as blocks.
Thanks again for your feedback
Your Typefaces are awesome. Really great concept.
Great work, mate! Looks very clear and usable.
This is friggin sweet!
