Speculate: The New York Times

The New York Times is one of the most well known and cherished news publications in the U.S., if only the same could be said about their website. When it comes to nytimes.com, there are not too many clear navigational paths. Navigation bars change position, mass clutter of text, and everything else make the site feel tight and claustrophobic.

Ways of improving the online experience would involve a clear set of primary navigation tools. Clean and orderly navigation will allow readers to take in the site piece by piece, rather than one giant mass of information. Introducing images will help to break up the text heavy site, and could be used to draw attention to certain articles of the sites choosing. Over all, introducing a little breathing room.
