Agency 'redefines' Wikipedia

While some sites aim to remain at the cutting edge in design terms, some stay resolutely in the past. Jakob Nielsen's website, for example, has barely changed in years, sometimes even contradicting the advice he gives. A more widely used old-fashioned site is online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, which has a basic design and layout that appears to have stepped out of the 1990s.

The NEW! agency asked itself the question of what would happen if you had the power to make any site "more functional, more useful, better looking, [and] more pleasing," and drastically reworked the Wikipedia website accordingly. "We decided to spend two spring months on this project, looking for the ways how to make it better, reader or editor friendlier, clearer and aesthetically satisfying," explains the introduction on Wikipedia Redefined.
