An all new design for the Cleartrip Blog

Things look a little different around our blog today–it’s been a long time coming since it’s been a spare-time project. And so, today, we’re thrilled to bring you the new and improved Cleartrip Blog.

Just for the record here’s what our old blog looked like:

So what’s new?

  • Better design and typography – The minimalist new design aims to create an improved visual hierarchy, with the typography tuned to perfect measures for a pleasurable reading experience.
  • More social media integration – We’ve made it much easier for you to share the blog posts that you like (or dislike) with your friends on Twitter and Facebook by leveraging the tools made available by those two networks for publishers.
  • Fully optimised for handhelds – We now have a single responsive design for the blog that gracefully scales up or down to ensure you get a comfortable reading experience whether you’re using a desktop, smartphone or tablet.
  • Powered by WordPress – Until today, we’ve been using Squarespace as our hosted blogging platform; Squarespace is a fantastic product, but we decided it was time for us to move to WordPress as it gives us more fine-grained control over everything, allowing for any customisations we want at any time. We’re also migrating to WordPress as our CMS at Cleartrip, but that’s a story for another day.

We’ve had a lot of fun while redesigning our blog and we hope you love the new design and we hope you’ll keep reading.
