Under the hood: washingtonpost.com’s new look

I was wondering when The Washington Post was going to comment about its Web redesign on its nice behind-the-scenes blog. Now they have:

To better highlight our award-winning video and photo content, we’ve added a multimedia strip to the page. This band will be comprised of videos, photos and interactives, and by using the scroll arrows or the iTunes-like buttons, you can scroll to see more multimedia features. We’ve also created a similar strip for features content, allowing us to better showcase all the content we have in that area.

This is pretty nifty (although kinda far down on the page).

Much, much more detail in the blog post.

Predictably, many people have commented about how much they HATE the new look. I’m sure plenty of people like it (I do), but they are not taking the time to post their opinions.
