The Hacker News social voting community powered by Y Combinator is a source for breaking development & startup news.

It’s been around for years and ballooned into a trustworthy resource. But even with high-quality submissions and a large userbase, readers often pick a gripe with the rather uninspired design.

Although I doubt Paul Graham will update the site anytime soon, it’s still fun to imagine what could be. That’s why I’ve cataloged this gallery of Hacker News redesigns for web and mobile apps.

Each redesign was made for fun to show off design skills and the potential Hacker News has for a more aesthetically-pleasing interface.
