    Hi guys,

    I thought I would post this macrumors redesign just for kicks

    Its a quick mockup based on a striped tshirt I had as a kid in the 80s.

    Happy new year. Enjoy.

    Looks like a blog instead of an actual website.

    I like the look (it's a lot better than what we have now!) but there is a heck of a lot of dead space in the header. That would need to be fixed.

    thanks guys!

    you're right, the header space needs a little work, i love whitespace but it just doesn't flow exactly how i want it.

    macrumors is great like it is, but its nice to have a little fun with it :)

    I always thought macrumors needed a change in looks :)

    They changed to that stupid looking Apple logo about 6 or 7 years ago (IIRC).. probably to minimize the chance of getting sued by Apple lol.

    (and by this, I'm referring to the current logo that looks like a really strange post it note thumb-tacked at the bottom)

    I like the logo. The question mark is quite relevant considering this is a rumours site.

    The current logo looks like - and im sorry for those that don't see it, but you will now - someone who is sucking something sour. The apple seeds look like eyes to me haha

    Believe it or not, but I had been coming here nearly a year before I even saw the '?' in the logo. :eek:

    Of all the mockups of new looks for MR, this is far and away the most unique. Kudos to you for that!

    That's mostly what MacRumors is; It's an Apple blog. :)

    I like the nostalgic look.. Too much whitespace in the header, but otherwise cool.

    Not bad, better than my Photoshop skills. I can barely even do the basic stuff.

    That was the first thing I noticed. It's always ticked me off that the apple doesn't quite look like an apple. Ah well. :D

    Nice job! I really dig the retro Apple logo, although I have a feeling it'd have the stupid lawyers knocking on arn's door in no time at all. ;)
