Alex on the Akismet blog has detailed the newly launched redesign of Akismet, the popular spam Plugin and service from Automattic. See our saved copy of the old version here.

On the fresh design, Alex said:

Akismet was the very first commercial service released by Automattic. 5 years later, Akismet.com was still running with exactly the same design it’s had since day 1.

That it still looked good was a testament to the strength of understated design. Still, we thought it was about time to freshen things up with a brand new design – and a new signup process to go with it.

The new design brings a fresh look to the home page (including the slick “spams zapped” counter shown below) and a new signup process.
