The changes to the design of pixiv's artwork page on pixiv for PC and for smartphones were made effective as of June 13th, 2018.
As disclosed in this announcement
posted on April 4th, the page renewal was already reflected on part of the users starting from April 17th.
■ With the new design, your art is the protagonist of the screen!
We decided to renovate the page for the following purposes:
・So that users can focus on the artwork as soon as they open the page
・To make it easier for users to follow an artist and to browse that artist's works.
On pixiv for PC, the artwork display size is bigger than ever before.
Also, we moved the title and tags that were on top of the screen to the bottom of the artwork.
We also deleted text ads, so that all information about the artwork is easier to see.
