Just messing around: The Verge Homepage Refresh

So I was doing a project for school when I strayed way off track and ended up at a completely different direction.

Just messing around, I decided to go with it and see what happens.

What I essentially did was pretty much take the great design the good people at The Verge have created, and changed it up a little bit and made some of the images flatter and colors brighter.

The current design is already amazing and needs nothing. I just did this for fun.
For the record, everything is recreated from scratch except for their logo (obviously) and the social media buttons.

All criticism is welcomed! This is simply an idea based on an already great design.
