arduino - new website

During World Maker Faire in NYC some days ago, Massimo Banzi unfolded for the first time the process of ‘reimagination’ of our website.

Starting this week you are going to experience a progressive change of our platform and in the next months we’ll release periodic updates aimed at improving and enhancing your overall user experience on arduino.cc (especially the blog, forum and shop).

Announcement!

In this first session we are going to update the website with a new navigation and reading experience. Later on we’ll focus on redesigning the overall information architecture: expect much more in the upcoming weeks!

In the meanwhile we’ll be happy to hear from you on the dedicated Forum thread ‘Arduino Website 3.0‘, with your feedback we can continue to improve our process.

Improvements don’t just happen: for this redesign operation we’ve extended our long-term collaboration with TODO, the design studio which already developed the Arduino identity, the boards layout and the packaging for the whole series of Arduino products. Solid results are coming soon!

We’re committed to make vital investment in order to provide the Arduino community a better learning and sharing experience. We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of this programmed downtime and thank you for your patience.

    Please, get the fonts right!!! All the titles are hard to read as they do not have any visible spaces between words.

    I like the new look. However I found some font problem. The website still displays the old font in the computer that had browse arduino.cc before, even when I already cleared the browser’s cache.
