While Every Other Website Is Trying to Look Just Like Pinterest, Pinterest Is Preparing to Update Its Iconic Design

Pinterest is experiencing some first world problems. It's iconic look and intuitive UI has become the envy of so many sites and social networks. As a result, many have tried to recreate the same look. Some of them look okay. Others, not so much.

But Pinterest isn't throwing away its fabulous grid-style design in spite of all the copycats. Instead, it's just making some worthwhile improvements to the navigation and providing optimization for image-based content, along with some much-needed tweaks to related pins. You can read more about the updated design here on the Pinterest blog.

Just a few lucky users will get to test it out, but you can sign-up if you want early access to the new look. Pinterest power users should be happy to hear about the update. A faster, cleaner, easier-to-use interface may be just what it needs to perhaps help boost traffic and pinning activity.
