MAC’s New Look

(you can click this image and see it larger)

MAC’s new website has caused a lot of reaction, and rightfully so. The new design is very different from the old design. There are a ton more flash elements and the menus are completely different. Also, finding a color has become a real task since the way of displaying swatches completely changed.

I totally despise the new layout. I really miss the simplicity and ease of use of the old one. Did it have crazy flash all over the place? No but it was functional and I was able to find what I was looking for quickly. This site lags. And finding stuff is very hard with the strange color chooser they’ve added.

And one more gripe…black brushes on a black background. Seriously? Absurd. The site might look cool once it finally loads, but all user friendliness has gone out the window.

Memo to MAC website design team: this website is for customers, not your ego.

What do you think of MAC’s new site?
