We’re on Holiday but There’s a Second Coming

We’re short on posts today as the Yanko Design team are all on holiday. It’s Labor Day in the United States so with half the team kickin’ back with BBQ’s and beers, we thought it best to give the international team a rest too. But there’s more than meets the eye.

The current site layout pushed readership beyond anything we could have imagined and cemented a place for us as one of the best design destinations on the web. We couldn’t be happier. We’ve grown significantly in that short amount of time and just wanted to THANK every single one of our readers. We see the familiar faces who comment everyday so we take our relationship with you very seriously. However, in the fast paced world of blogs, there’s always room for growth and improvement so we’re proud to announce the second coming of Yanko Design launching tomorrow. Our team has worked tirelessly over the past few months. We’ve really kept you – the readers in mind so we hope you’ll love and enjoy it.

You guys are awesome. CHEERS!

    looking forward to the changes.

  • powers says:

    How will you make an already great site better? Just hope it doesn’t bog down my aging G4 too bad like facebook and yahoo do.

  • William C says:

    Yeah… I think its about time Yanko got an update – site looks a tad outdated when comparing it to the awesome blog pictures!

  • IGreenSpot says:

    I love the old design of Yanko…whatever I still come by

  • powers says:

    Nicely done.

  • Ian says:

    I have the same wood background as my desktop background….weird.

  • Bob says:

    prefure the old site layout it was easyer to read and positioning was beter.

  • enoo says:

    Hm, not sure I really like this new design, just because it seems to lack a simple but important feature: The next/previous links, so one doesn’t need to go back to the main page to access the next/previous article.
    It would be very nice if you could bring back those links, please :))))

    The wooden top background is nice, but the little diamonds background is annoying, distracting for the eyes. Plain black would be better IMO.

    • L.T. says:

      We hear you loud and clear. For the new site, we wanted to start with only the basics and slowly add in features and make revisions. We wanted readers to have a say so we value your comments. Thank you very much.

      • Bob says:

        The little daimonds as it apears there called (they look like a few pixels on my screen)bug me the most though hehe.

  • Ian says:

    I think it’s missing some separation. There seems to be nothing separating one column from the next. Maybe a 5 or 10% background on it would help with that.

    It also gets messy between the end of the post and the beginning of the comments. You have two parts telling people to go to other designs, why not reduce that to 1? And take out the google ad image and keep a simple small google add text bar.
