TV station home page redesign

When I took over as Web manager at KCEN, the home page was pretty cluttered and lacking a clear hierarchy (first image). The WorldNow CMS puts some firm constraints on the designer, but I managed to better organize the content and put more information where users need it (second image). Moving from one long list of stories to blocks of headlines also eliminated the need for someone to manually remove the old stories from the home page – it could get pretty long at times! A new logo echoing the station branding replaced the squashed and stretched type in the header. Be sure to check out both full-size images for the full effect.
