Any thoughts on the economist.com redesign?

Hi!

I'm sure there are few people aware of the recent redesign of
www.economist.com
Otherwise, someone would have drawn attention to it.
I mean...it looks quite messy to me.Given their prestige.

Any thoughts?

PS.

Re: [IxDA] What makes an application feel fast?

Two factors were identified in a study several years ago (sorry, don't remember the reference):

1) The perceived complexity of an operation influences the user's expectations.

Is e-commerce design dead?

Hi Dave. From what I've seen, the disciplines of marketing and
interaction design are often unnecessarily (and unwisely) siloed and
segmented. There are a lot of great sources of information for the
topics you seek. One of my favorites is FutureNow's marketing
optimization blog: http://www.grokdotcom.com/

Brian Eisenberg is very smart about merchandising and
personalization. Marketers are more likely to use the term
"conversion" than "user experience," but the goals, process, and
outcomes are pretty synonymous.

Redesigning the milk jug

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/30/business/30milk.html (Free

Interesting article on a redesign of the common milk jug, its
environmental impact, and the reaction of the consumer.

I'm again reminded that change management is a fundamental part of
Interaction Design.
