Soooooooo. Is anyone going to say something about Stuff’s new design?
I feel between Golriz’s shoplifting and NZ declaring war on one of the poorest countries on earth that we all missed Stuff’s garish design ‘upgrade’.
And I’m using the word ‘upgrade’ as broadly as I can.
Is no one going to start being mean?
Let me kick it off then.
It hurts my eyes!
The colour code feels like it’s been dictated to by the Trans Rights Flag colour palette.
Slightly off primary colours in an ugly beige Neapolitan ice cream colour scheme that manages to make the entire look of the site feel juvenile.
It’s like the Rainbows End Community noticeboard, but younger.
This section feels like Tinder for TicTok.
It feels cheap and they’ve managed to rob authority from their own news product.
It’s like a social media platform for girls who go to private schools, if that was what they were aiming for, they’ve nailed it.
It’s so surprisingly ugly.
Stuff is like a 50 year old women dying her hair purple and cutting it short and demanding we all love it.
We don’t love it.
