A Fresh New Look for Inside BlackBerry

NEWS / 12.03.13 / donnyhalliwell

You may have noticed, that somethings have changed around here. Let me be the first to welcome you to the newly re-designed Inside BlackBerry blogs. Inside BlackBerry is the official blog for BlackBerry Ltd.

This project has been a labour of love for all of the editors and designers here, and our focus has been to better serve you, our readers. We’ve not only completed a visual upgrade that offers a cleaner, more functional design, but, we’ve changed the way our content is organized, as well, making it easier for you to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Showcasing our blogs:

You may or may not have been aware, but here at BlackBerry, we have four distinct blogs each with their own content focus:

Before, these sister blogs were buried at the bottom of our layout and not easy to discover. Now they’re all easily accessible and showcased at the top. Navigating between our blogs to get what you’re looking for has never been easier.


Re-Organized Content:

We’ve taken a more editorial approach to the design and have organized our content into categories at the top. On IBB, for example, you’ll see:

  • News
  • Devices
  • Apps & Games
  • Media & Entertainment
  • BBM
  • Features
  • Events

Navigating to one of these categories will show you only posts on that topic. So, whether you’re looking for the latest Apps & Games news, or BBM updates you can simply select the category and see all related posts.


Responsive Design:

We wanted to make sure that our blogs looked beautiful on any screen, so we’ve made the design responsive, so that it scales with whatever device you’re using. If you land on a smartphone, tablet, or large desktop monitor, you’ll find that the content and layout suits the size of your screen.


Well, we hope you enjoy the new look and feel of the official BlackBerry blogs. Remember, we’ve made these changes with you in mind, so please share your feedback with us in the comments. I can’t wait for you to start exploring the new layout.
On behalf of the entire editorial team, thank you for reading.

I would like to give a very big shout out and thanks to the Thrillworks team, who designed and implemented this fantastic new look and feel from the ground up.
