The team over at YouTube seem to be cooking up a redesign for their ever-popular site. As you can see above, the supposed design seems to be red-heavy when compared to the current layout, using hues of gray and blue, this is a big overhaul.

Though quite a bit hard on the eyes, the new design is much more intuitive and easy to navigate. While before you had to click through the separate Videos, Categories, Channels, and Community tabs, you can now simply hover those aforementioned labels to find what you’re after. This seems much more intuitive, though I find the search is a quicker way to find videos (that and Digg 😉

The site is still in “Preview” (guess they didn’t want to say Beta), so lots of improvements will still be made.
