We are starting a limited beta for a new design for IMDbPro’s pages for names, titles, and companies, all based on member feedback. The new interface not only makes it easier to find information but also simplifies navigating the many sections within the page.

You may see the new design during some of your visits to IMDbPro, as we are making this available in a phased way as we monitor feedback. If you see the new design, there will be messaging on the page indicating the new design and providing you a link to send in feedback via a survey.

Here are some key improvements that we have made:

Page summary section

At the top of each page you will now find a summary of the key information about the name, title, or company. In this top summary section,we provide links to more detailed information elsewhere on the page. This makes it faster and easier for you to find IMDbPro member exclusive information.

Data organization

Information about name, title, and companies are organized under tabs in our new design. This allows you to quickly navigate between sections without the need to load a completely new page. Related data items are now also re-organized to appear within the same tab.

Contact and representation information

You can find the representation, affiliations, or contact information for each page directly underneath the top summary section on the left side of the page. 

Trending and popularity

On the bottom of each page you can find popularity and trending details including detailed STARmeter, MOVIEmeter, or COMPANYmeter charts as well as other relevant popularity information depending on the page type you are on.

I am afraid I think that the previous IMDb design was better. It was more business-like with sections in rectangular white squares, like the section on Contacts with listings of Talent Agent, Manager, Publicist, Legal Representation. To start, each section was listed in capital letters, like MANAGER and LEGAL REPRESENTATION, then the information appeared in rectangular boxes with lined and squared separations. This looked very professional and has a tone of serious business intent in its look and feel. Now, this section has moved to the left, the divided squares are gone, the letter font has turned artistic, section categories are headed in small letters like Manager and Legal Representation, and all in all, the smaller words and unlined and undivided sections, and the new artistic word fonts has given the whole page a new and artistic look but it seems more a page of an interior designer or a travel website rather than a serious business website for motion picture and television industry professionals. My opinion is to ask (though I know I may be in the minority) for the old page design to be brought back for the reasons just mentioned above.
