BBC News redesigns site

BBC News has launched an improved site design.

Among the changes are a wider, more open look, bigger images and better presentation of audio and video.

BBC News has been soliciting reader reaction to the new design, which you can see here.

Julia Whitney, who led the design work and is considerably more knowledgeable than me about these things, has already written a detailed post to address the main points readers raised, including use of white space, scrolling, the masthead, and customisation.
