Just in from Financial Times:
Here’s a sneak preview of our new-look homepage, which launches this week. We’re aiming for a more sophisticated look and feel that is consistent with the Financial Times brand - a clean and uncluttered executive briefing on the world of global business.
This is the first step in a series of design changes and functional improvements that will be rolled out across the rest of the site as they become available. These include:
- Expanded coverage of important subjects such as macroeconomics, energy and technology.
- Better integration between market data and news, to give context to market movements.
- More opportunities for users to become part of the Financial Times community by contributing to our discussion forums and blogs.
Of course, many of the things we’re working on we hope you’ll hardly notice at all. Planned improvements to the behind-the-scenes nuts and bolts of our publishing system will make the site quicker and easier to use. Please bear with us while we get there.
