A new look for Facebook

Just because you're the world's most famous social network, with a die-cast brand, a squillion members and a feature film, doesn't mean that you should sit on your laurels UX-wise. At least, that's what Brisbane, Australia-based Swede Fred Nerby (opens in new tab) believes about Facebook (opens in new tab).

New Facebook design

Facebook has been given an all-new responsive design concept by Fred Nerby, including the photos screen

Art director and designer Nerby has outlined a completely new look and concept for Mark Zuckerberg's global giant on his Behance page, a new responsive desktop and iPad design that has elements of metro design language and a soupçon of the new MySpace (opens in new tab), but it emphatically beats with Facebook's heart.

Could this 'news grid' design be Facebook's redesigned news feed, due to be revealed on 7 March?

Nerby has designed new login, dashboard, profile and company profile screens, as well as creating an all-new news grid to replace Facebook's news feed and several other redesigned elements all with the purpose of modernising Facebook's tired interface.

Menlo Park will unveil a redesigned news feed on 7 March, with many people guessing whether that will be a mild refresh or a 'news grid' style redesign like Nerby's. We shall just have to wait and see...
