Since viewing the new format I have started to develop a headache, perhaps coinicidence or perhaps ATS is transmitting subliminal messages and Im picking up the transmissions!
The toolbar is the thing I miss the most.
Seems like like windows without a start button or a toolbar...
As a copywriter the #1 rule is simply a popular font of black on white. I think people actually liked the old format for the simple fact that it's easier to read. This is grey on darker grey with not a popular font. I'd at least go very dark grey, lighter text, and popular font.
I'm just hating this new format. Why was change I'll never understand.
First post i ever seen by you that does not have links and Ex-Text!
"What's with the new ATS site design?! It's horrid! Not only is it really confusing to read what's there it also hurts my eyes!" Source
ATS, your new site layout and design = THUMBS DOWN! I'll get right to the point, it sucks! What's the saying? Why fix something that ain't broke? Source
"The new font on your website is like reading "BOLD" text throughout. It's very hard on the eyes, makes it very unreadable. Just keep it simple, guys. No need to go overboard with these web 2.0 aesthetics." Source
"Agree with the design critiques. Did you ever consider EXCLUSIVE INVITE BETA TESTING might not be a good idea to gauge UX with your entire audience? Perhaps? Maybe? Looks way better than the airhorn black and white design with such little content on the screen you feel like you're reading a children's book."Source
Agree with the OP on this fonts and ability to read.
