MacRumors redesign (part I) university redesign sf pro website webdesign private

Last semester I participated in a digital typography course at my university. The task was to redesign one website with focus on typography. I've chosen MacRumors.

My goal was to bring the look and feel closer to the Apple platform(s) with rounded corners, bold typography and the SF Pro font. I took the opportunity to cut the articles on the main site as they force you to scroll a lot. And you don't always want to read all articles right. The article pages itself also got a big redesign as you can see in the rebound.

The search is now much better to read with bigger fonts, thumbnails and a short contextual excerpt from the search phrase.

Don't forget to check out the full design in the attachments! (Always compared to the current design)
