The New TED.com

Today, I got my early access email to the new interface of my favorite place on the web, TED.com. I look forward to exploring the new interface over the next few days. The biggest change so far is to the basic splash page. Currently, this is what visitors to TED.com see:

The focus here is on allowing users to peruse new talks and talks organized by characteristics (most persuasive, most inspiring, etc.). The new site, however, looks like this:

So, the focus is now on isolating a trending or new talk and allowing users to find talks related to the subject more easily. The interface has been minimized, from 14 menu options to five categories–watch, read, attend, participate, and about. TED is rolling out the new site in stages, so can’t wait to see what comes next!

What do you think of the new interface so far? TED’s redesign is based on user-generated feedback, so the people have spoken and they seem to crave simplicity!

  1. Looks clean! I agree–more simplicity and focus with the redesign. I appreciate the cleaner top nav but at a glance, wouldn’t know the difference between attend and participate. Speak might be a little clearer than participate, especially since it’s a site all about speaking. The number of views next to the featured video is an interesting choice–some subtle encouragement to watch. Great post–thanks!

    • Hi Genevieve,

      So far, I am still trying to get used to the minimal front page. I miss the ability to explore talks using that shuffling talks filter. I wonder how they will work to encourage folks to watch other talks besides the related talks bar below the video.
