YouTube's new homepage takes ALL the emphasis away from creative thumbnails, and wastes lots of precious homepage space. Here's my proposed alternative design. If you think mine is better, please forward this to @YTCreators and tell them!

My design uses the exact same amount of screen-space, and retains all of the old information, but also include news data like the like/dislike ratio, and the icon of the video's respective show or playlist. Thumbnails, and channel avatars are the #1 source of branding, and my design correctly puts the emphasis back on those elements.
