2014’s New YouTube Layout: A Fan-made Alternative

My design for a new YouTube layout has proved popular online.

Not everything about the current YouTube layout has come under fire from Jaroslav, however, with the designer telling us that YouTube’s current colour scheme is ‘well chosen’.


Psy dances his way around the new YouTube layout.

“My aim for the project was to make something clear and simple. My design is well arranged and, in the opinion of myself and my friends, fits better towards the modern world of YouTube. It seems to me that my design would more attract young people to the site, too”.

This vision of a new YouTube layout makes the most of a grid-style similar to that of YouTube’s old subscription page. Video results are presented in rows and columns rather than on a single scrolling page. Notifications, running through Google Plus, are also presented in a more accessible form.

The video playback page itself boasts a far more minimalistic appearance than the current YouTube, making the most of dark colours and simple iconography.

Here at Tube Chum, we’re big fans of Jaroslav’s minimal approach.
