Well, when I said a few months ago that I really liked the layout of the Australian‘s website, I have to take it back. Not because I don’t like that design anymore, but because they have changed their website.
This coincided with the introduction of their pay-wall just a couple of weeks ago, but I don’t think it was really necessary, especially when the new layout simply looks washed out and perhaps even amateur. But then again, that is just my own opinion. I know that some people really like that ‘clean cut’ look, but it just looks to me like there’s space to fill and they don’t know how to.
Oh well – it will be interesting to see how many other major Australian news outlets will soon follow suit and begin charging for content.
