Any sports fan can appreciate a good sports ticker. Though right now its all baseball, during football season the site is a lot more alive with users and so is the community. When I think of a well designed website, I think of a site that is easy to navigate. In ESPN’s case, navigation is a breeze. You start with “what sport” and move onto “what part”. Well structured, well organized and well designed.
Apart from being my favorite alternative news site, the VICE website also has that same easy navigation I believe makes a well designed site. Once you reach the homepage, you see the featured stories in the form of thumbnails that give a quick visual pertaining to the story. I may not be interested in the subject matter of the article, but the visual presented makes me curious enough to click. Visually, this site is amazing. Functionally, this site is impeccable.
