Globe's New Clothes


Globe has done a major website overhaul. The site shed it's old school Internet look and now has that flashy colorful young feel. Looks more like a cool gadget magazine in my opinion. The only thing is the fonts, icons and the inconsistencies of lines (much like that of my stores and prices comparison hehehe). Globe should implement the font they used with their logo on all the site's fonts similar to what Smart Buddy did. Globe's icons aren't standard in terms of resolution and design. They just all look different (refer to Manage Globe Services icons and Barkada News icon). Sorry for the small image but you may check Globe's website at www.globe.com.ph or just follow the link.


Smart's website on the other hand still has that "corporate feel" which does not appeal, at least, to me. I'm talking about Smart's ho-hum landing page at www.smart.com.ph. Smart has separate pages for Buddy & Gold's subscribers that is if you look at the right-hand side of the page and click on the teensy-weensy Buddy & Gold's icons will lead you to the page. I think that Smart's page lacks the flashiness of Globe's improved website but the former has icons uniform in size and color and very clean. Smart's website maybe boring but fonts & icons are all consistent and the clean look is easy on the eyes.

By the way, I'm not a website designer and I am a Smart user.
