Your challenge in this project is to think of how you can improve the visual design of Craigslist. Is it possible to keep the same structure, but just give it a visual lift?

Device & Platform

The solutions you come up with should work on Desktop Web. Extra bonus for making it work on Mobile Web.

Hints and ideas

If you’re feeling stuck, you can look at a Sketch file with someone else’s redesign: Craigslist App Concept Sketch freebie

You can get some inspiration by searching Craigslist on Dribbble, a platform where other visual designers upload their work. This link will take you to the search page:
