Recently I stumbled over a Homepage which had a sort of tiled design on the homepage consisting of several black/dark rounded boxes positioned next to each other. Similar to stack exchange view all sites, but with just a few boxes of different size above the fold.
However I forgot which site it was, and am now looking for successful implementations of that design in the wild and possibly if there is a name for this other than tiles?
(Tiles seems to be something slightly different, involving functionality)
This is how it looks like:
The aim here is to replace a slider with something like that.
So basically I am asking if this design has a name, and what well known websites use it on their homepage instead of a slider (news sites don't count).
