WorldStar HipHop is home to everything entertainment & hip hop. The #1 urban outlet responsible for breaking the latest urban news.
Wanting to improve their revenue streams, WorldStar HipHop approached our team needing a complete revitalization of their forum and website. We first tackled their forum by designing an unique node grid that featured on-brand photos. The next challenge was finding a solution on how to better deliver their content.
WorldStar is mostly driven by video consumption and because of that, we approached the new design with Youtube as an inspiration. We organized content based on tags and planned the functionality to be able to favorite certain tags so the homepage could be custom tailored to you.
