Visual style

Style/theme ideas for the Web page design

I am looking to update/change the home page layout of screenrant.com. I am keeping the same overall look/theme to the site - what I want is ideas for different presentations of the content on the home page. The large image at the top was a slideshow, but I want some sort of large image/grid approach for our top or featured stories (5-6 items) to replace it. Not sure if I want to keep the same layout below the large image or go to some other look. Ease of use for visitors and browsing of content to encourage clicks to articles is paramount. Must be inviting and easily scannable.

    I like the presentation of featured items at the top of the page and the highlighted video area on the home page as well. I do find the items below the top of the page to be a bit disjointed and hard to scan.
  • http://polygon.com
    I like the use of a grid at the top of the page, and while there is variety to the way the content is presented lower on the page, I do find it fairly organized and not as confusing/jarring as polygon.com
  • http://mashable.com
    I like the clean look of it and it seems fairly easy to scan as one scrolls down the page.
