Pinterest is readying a test that will alter the inspirational site with a tweaked navigation, bigger pins, and an overall faster site experience, the company announced Monday.
The experimental Pinterest look will roll out to a small group of people as the startup attempts to help its users get more information about pins they care about, a spokesperson told CNET. The company plans to release the design more widely once it works out the bugs.
With the redesign, Pinterest.com will test its navigational elements contained inside a red-button drop-down menu on the left-hand side that offers members shortcut access to the feed, popular pins, and categories of pins. The structure replaces the current "Following," "Categories," "Everything," and "Popular" links atop the homepage.
From the looks of it, Pinterest has opted for a design-driven approach to get people to explore pins with reckless abandon.
