New USA Today website fails the basic ‘it works’ test for news sites

Testing an app, a website or any other digital media on multiple devices and browsers is essential, as any good designer will tell you. But it is amazing how often something goes live with just the bare minimum of oversight.

USAT-new-website-lgCase in point is the new USA Today website which is a mess.

Even if the site did not have logos missing it would be a design disaster. Its look, which mirrors those free WordPress themes, is totally unimaginative. Worse, this is the flagship paper for Gannett, not some local suburban newspaper.

There are plenty of good examples of newspaper websites by now, there is no excuse for this mess from USA Today.
