Perhaps the hardest project you could ever take on is designing the website of an online news magazine. One of those sites that gets updated umpteen times a day and publishes various formats of content, like news articles, image galleries, videos, blog columns, polls, etc. Yes, I am talking about content heavy websites. Those behemoths of sites that seem to be impossible to plan, nevermind design for.
As you will already know, there are thousands of content-rich websites out there, but very few seem to focus on good design. Sure, they have put a lot of thought into organization and structure, but for the most part they do rely on the old tried and tested magazine-style layouts, and never really tend wander far from those confines.
Fortunately, not all are like that. Some do dare to venture out and breakout off those shackles and design something truly unique and, and dare I say it, beautiful.
