Worst design ever, or brilliantly awful? This is the new Rupert Murdoch news site, "Knewz" and I NEED to know how you all feel about it. Love it? Hate it? | Fairygodboss

A lover of iconography and meaningful designs.
Way too in your face "Alert, Caution, Warning!!!!" For my liking. Too much use of the brand color and font is too big. Everything is screaming for attention which makes me not able to concentrate on one thing. For positives I actually don't hate "Knewz." I like the name and logo. Just needs to reel everything else in. Nothing is easily digestible.

I like the concept as I stopped following the "news" a while ago. I feel like without facts on both sides of any situation, it's hard to form an opinion. Since "news" stations are so biased- one way or the other- facts get skewed and it becomes unclear what the facts are. I would still like to be aware of worldly going on's and this concept is fast and easy to get the info. Maybe the play on "knewz" was that they would give you facts instead of opinions like the others? Unfortunately- in my opinion- it comes off as fake and not trustworthy. Don't feel like the colors are a great fit. Caution?

Not at all attractive, but in a few seconds, I saw several stories I’d click on, so it’s effective. Who KNEW?

I find the color yellow very annoying. There must be another color that will get people's attention. Not criticising, just my opinion.

professional rofl nevermind lets just wing it
The directional pull is very chaotic which disrupts the thought process. I feel a little pressure to dig around for what I need

It's a good example of bad design.

Meh. It's targeting a very distinct readership. I think it looks interesting, but not sure I could read it for long. Yet, I'm likely not the demographic. It seems like a Word Press template design gone ultra extreme.
