ninemsn gets revamped logo, homepage design

By on

In 2009, MSN.com, Microsoft’s popular web portal, got a complete overhaul with a clean, new logo and attractive new design. And now, almost 2 years later, ninemsn (Nine Entertainment Co. and Microsoft’s joint venture) will be getting the same treatment.

The Battle of HD Multi Channelling…

By on
