Star Tribune: New and Minty Fresh!

The Star Tribune launched their new and improved website this morning. Their redesign comes the same day as MPR unveiled their new website, although the Strib definitely redid much more than just aesthetics. I for one am pro said changes. The Strib looks minty with its new color scheme with everything seeming far more organized and MPR looks autumnal, crinkly and brown. Both the City Pages and The Rake already went through redesigns earlier this year.
Now, can someone please tell the Pioneer Press and The Pulse to please hire new web designers?

    The site itself looks fine. Much cleaner. I haven’t tried to navigate it much.

    I don’t like the section on the redesign. For starters, there needs to be a way to stop that damn video from playing (or a more obvious one if I missed it). And the associated blog is just stupid. They used it because blogs are trendy. If it was really an informative, useful blog about the redesign process, it would date back farther than last Saturday.

    Just looked at MPR. I like it.

    Except that blue/red/green dot logo looks like a crayon box farted on the monitor.
