Florida-based designer Ziarekenya Smith shared his YouTube redesign concept with me the other day and I have to say, it's flat out gorgeous. The amount of effort he's put into completely rethinking every page is seriously impressive. After you watch the video, it's hard to go back to the real YouTube and not think that it's time for a modern refresh!
The screenshots don't do it justice. To fully appreciate how dynamic the design is, you've definitely got to watch the video reel of the concept in action.
As you can see from the first screenshot, there's certainly some Windows/Microsoft inspiration in the colorful, boxy layout. I particularly like the reimagining of the stats and information area, which seems much more engaging that the current implementation.
What Do You Think?
Now it's time for you to chime in. What's your favorite part about this concept? What would you change?
