Wikipedia has become the accumulated knowledge behemoth of the web 2.0 era.We all love it, use it daily, and couldn’t imagine life without it. But this doesn’t mean that it’s perfect. From a users’ and designers’ perspective, there is in fact much room for improvement. Lithuanian design agency, New, have tackled the mother of all knowledge sites, and given it a much needed make-over. Their solution, Wikipedia Redefined, presents a slick, contemporary looking brand ,which in turn offers a greatly enhanced user experience.
The irony, however, is that despite Wikipedia’s defining motto as “the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit”, this does not extend to include the site’s design and functionality. Pity.
Go and view the entire Wikipedia Redefined project, it’s an incredible example of proactive, forward-thinking design work which actively seeks to solve real problems and make the world a better place, one design at a time.
