At LSE Bees, September is a season of many changes. It feels like the culmination of the beekeeping year, because this is when we harvest our honey and lay the foundations for next year’s harvest. On a more prosaic note, this is when we renew our LSESU memberships and look to recruit new members at the Freshers’ Fair. This year, the winds of change blowing all around us inspired us to redesign our website.
The current design sports a more minimalist look, with a touch of yellow (hex colour code #f3e5a9) to reflect the bee theme. More importantly, with the increasing use of smartphones, we wanted a website with “responsive design” (one which can change its layout based on whether it’s being viewed on a computer screen, tablet or phone) for a better viewing experience.
Long-time readers may recall that this is not the first time we changed our design. The first design, adopted when the blog was started way back in November 2011, was replaced by a second design in the summer of 2015. For the nostalgic among you, this is what v1 and v2 looked like:
So, what do you think of the new design? Are there any old features that you miss, or any new ones that you’d like to see?
