Welcome to Beautiful Pixels 5.0

Over the last several months, we’ve been slowly working on redesigning the look and feel of Beautiful Pixels. Ever since our launch back in 2009, Beautiful Pixels has had a dark theme. Over the years, there have been new designs, layouts and additional features added to the site in order to improve the experience for our readers. Today, it’s time for a change.

Welcome to Beautiful Pixels 5.0. We’ve completely revamped the look and feel of the website, so if you’re reading this in an RSS reader, come take a gander. Our new look focuses on being crisp & responsive. The typography has been tweaked and the layout is much more spiffy now. We’ve always tried to offer an elegant way of reading the content we publish and this new design finally lets you read articles on your mobile device more easily. Go ahead, try resizing the browser if you’re on a Desktop or enjoy the well suited look on your mobile or tablet.

BP 5.0 isn’t just a visual refresh though. There’s a ton of code that’s changed in the backend too. The previous backend was getting old and bloated, so this new structure allows us to do a lot more with the site now. In the coming days, we’ll be slowly rolling out some exciting new features to the site.

I’d like to take a moment to thank our Members, Sponsors and Advertisers who have supported us. We have always strived to deliver quality content to our audience and their support only helps us to keep doing better.

As always, we’re open to feedback and are excited to hear what you think of our new look. Do tweet us your thoughts @beautifulpixels, let us know on Facebook or simply email us.
