What well-known site is most desperately in need of a redesign? Wikipedia. I know it’s open source but I think it’s about time they lose the Craigslist aesthetic—it’s something like the fifth most visited site in the world. I don’t think a redesign needs to be drastic, but… refine the typography and implement some web type to make the long pages a bit easier on the eye; add the appropriate degree of pixel polish to make the UI a little more contemporary; and do a little work on integrating images a bit more thoughtfully. Dedication to the visual details would pay big dividends.
