We recently took a look at our search results display and decided it was time to clean things up a bit. All search results now have a fixed width icon to the left, which is a custom thumbnail for results with uploaded images or the default icon for the associated content type. See example below.

Lumify Search Results

Previously, we only displayed thumbnails for results with user-uploaded images and left the others as a text only display. This caused two problems:

  1. The title text for all the results did not line up neatly, making things a little visually jarring.
  2. For results without an uploaded image, it was hard to tell what type of content was represented without clicking to view it.

We think we've solved these issues with a much cleaner design, but you're the ultimate judge. Swing by our demo site to check out the new search results view and let us know what you think.
