Spooky Site Redesigns

BOO! Though FDR told us “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” everyone has a secret (or not-so-secret) fear. What’s the scariest sight you can imagine? How about the scariest site?

This year has been a scary one. Netflix is terrified from their stock drop, Apple is feeling fear over the loss of Steve Jobs, Bank of America’s fright has turned into a reign of terror, and Yahoo panicked so much they fired CEO Carol Bartz last month.

In honor of Halloween we took advantage of a great excuse to practice UX. We have redesigned four popular websites to suggest the concept of “fear.” Do any of these hit your fear factor?

Have a scary Halloween!
