Blog: Leonie BarrieThe shock of the new

Leonie Barrie | 27 March 2006

Well, spring has sprung, and with it a completely new look for just-style. We’ve been planning this redesign for some time now, from initial discussions many, many months ago to spending the past couple of weeks testing and tweaking it, so it’s a relief that the day of reckoning has finally arrived. Having been editor of just-style since its inception, this is probably the fourth relaunch I’ve been involved with and, without being biased, it’s by far and away the best. 

I hope you’ll have fun finding your way around and with any luck you’ll discover some of the various enhancements that we’ve added. From personalised news alerts (down to the exact content and time of day that you want them delivered) to more comment and analysis of the stories hitting the headlines, we hope we’re giving you even more value and more of a reason to visit the site. As with everything we do, we’ve tried to incorporate the latest technology to provide you with the most user-friendly experience, so I hope you’ll agree that our technical team has done a sterling job.

But I’m sure we won’t be pleasing all of the people all of the time, so if there’s something you think we’ve missed, please drop me a line. And by the same token, if you like what we’ve done it would be great to know that we’re on the right track. As they say, any feedback is better than none at all.
