After over a year of research, hard work, preparation, and dedication, I am able to say that iStockphoto v9.0 has finally launched. This is iStock’s first major site design update since back in 2006 and I am proud to say that I am part of the design team that helped make it happen. We’re all very excited about it and can’t wait to see the new design progress into the future.
The new site still has some of the old iStock touches, but overall, things have changed in a pretty large way. We’ve been slowly introducing customers and contributors to the new look with an F5 Article and some videos on Vimeo. Now that the site is live, we’re hoping everyone can help us out by reporting any bugs and issues to us.
Kelly Thompson, COO of iStockphoto, introduced the new design to everyone on August 7th.
“At the heart, what we’ve done is separate the actual content – the photographs, illustrations, video, audio and Flash – and put it directly in front of the people who want it. The home page and the new file landing pages are all about showing content to our customers. There’s way more featured content than we’ve ever had before, and we think the new look helps that content stand out more.”
