Blog design should contain minimal distractions

And heck, while we’re at it — so should news design, since essentially, they’re the same: both ways to consume content. If news design wants to mimic¬†digestibility¬†of blogs, they would copy the same concepts. Stumbled upon this post this morning and fell in love with how damn clean it is:

Inridea Clean Design with Comments

Specific likes of this design:

  • + Simple, clean logo
  • + Huge, visually-appealing background image (fixed)
  • + Minimal distractions on the actual body itself. No sidebar. Just a little sliver with a date and “share” items
  • + Easy-to-find social media and subscribe buttons
