Today we’re announcing upcoming branding and design changes to Anime-Planet that have been in the making for some time now. We will have more concrete branding images and updates to show you in the next few weeks. Anime-Planet has never had a solid brand of its own, and we’re excited to show you the process and results behind a new logo and mascots for the site. In addition to the branding changes, we’ve been working on a site redesign, in tandem with UX research, to improve Anime-Planet’s usability. The redesign isn’t ready yet, but we aim to release a new anime/manga info page as a first step in the next few months. In the meantime, today we’ve begun to roll out smaller changes that move towards the final redesign. More announcements and changes to come in the following weeks, leading up to major releases related to the redesign. Mobile improvements Site code has been changed for a dramatically better mobile experience when browsing lists of anime and manga. 3 entries wide now fit per row on a mobile screen, and responsiveness when shrinking a browser window now performs much better on many pages. Site width The site content width has increased from 1,000 pixels to 1,200 pixels. We conducted extensive testing on this, and updated the design accordingly to fill in the space better. For example: Default “cards” per row is 7 now, instead of 6 (such as on the browse anime or season charts pages). 5 recommendations display on the anime/manga entry pages, instead of 4. 5 “known for” cards appear on staff pages, instead of 4. Circular avatars and status colors Avatars across the site are now circular, except for your large avatar in your profile. The forum avatars are still square for now, but we’ll update some of these to be on-brand in the future. Status colors for user stats are now circular. Many more updates to come in the future - we’re excited to show you Anime-Planet new logo and mascots in the next few weeks. Thanks as always for your support of Anime-Planet!
