Bruce Mau Design creates a new look for the social networking giant.

In a recent article, Washington Post art critic Blake Gopnik calculated that people have spent more time looking at the Facebook home page since its creation in 2004, than they have looking at Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” in the 500 years since its painting. The Post then invited renowned firm Bruce Mau Design to conceptualize a Facebook facelift (pictured above) to re-imagine the functionality of the site. BMD came back not only with a much more aesthetically pleasing interface, but also one that attempts to augment the way that we use the site. Their “new look” placed a higher emphasis on images, fewer status updates to moderate “addiction,” and also provided users with more direct ways of getting in “real” contact with their friends through a section of the page devoted specifically to voice/SMS/or video chat.
