Yahoo website given a makeover

Inspired by the look of the company's celebrated weather app and Flickr update, designer Quincy Gibbs gives the Yahoo website a conceptual revamp.

Yahoo never seems to be out of the news at the moment. Just when everyone thought the internet giant was floundering, it bought Tumblr, gave Flickr a ground-up redesign, and created the world's prettiest weather app. But some would argue that the heartbeat of Yahoo, its website, is currently letting the side down.

One such agitator is New York designer Quincy Gibbs, who has created a new look concept for Yahoo, even including a Weather-inspired new logo to replace the company's recognisable and playful branding, in a remarkably similar style to eBay's 2012 rebrand.

Currently just a concept, first revealed on Business Insider, as far as we are aware there are no plans for Yahoo to adopt any of these changes. But under the guidance of CEO Marissa Mayer, the company has recently been prone to surprise us all...
