25 Magazine or News Style Web Designs for Inspiration

With more websites and blogs publishing large amounts of content on a daily basis, one of the priorities in designing these types of news sites is to create a layout that allows visitors to find the content that they are looking for. The more content that is published, the bigger the challenge this becomes. Many sites and blogs are turning to magazine or news style layouts to display excerpts, headlines, and links to full content.

Most magazine-style sites include image thumbnails for some or all of the excerpts, and many also category those excerpts to make it easier for visitors to find specific content. If you are working on a magazine or news style layout this showcase of 25 websites should help to provide some inspiration.

    Some really great designs there! I first started playing around with magazine style themes a couple of years. There is a definitely a learning curve involved if you aren’t used to it, and there’s probably a whole lot of features you aren’t even aware of. Spend some time working with a theme and it will be worth your while!
