I opened up my Google Reader this morning to find that its previously pleasant color scheme (shades of blue) had been replaced by a ridiculously bland almost entirely white backdrop. Techcrunch applauds the revamp due to faster processing or some shit (ht: Pax).
After sifting through some feeds, I found a post on Deadspin that I wanted to read. What did I find? A re-design that is almost entirely white-based.
Then I came onto Pax Arcana to add a new post about Zooey Deschanel’s enchanting voice or something, and would you know it but WordfuckingPress changed their format to be white.
Web designers: it’s not paper. White is really bright on a computer screen. It also looks like an aborted toddler was in charge of design. Yes, an aborted toddler.
The aesthetic and considerate Mrs. Pax could shit out better design than this. I hate you all.
Thanks for listening.
