el aspecto y la presentación
Explanation:
As a native speaker, my opinion is that to say that the "aspecto y la presentación" of XXX has been changed, sounds less contrived than other more literal translations of the word "feel". When you say that the "presentación" has changed, you´re saying that everything about it, the way it is portrayed, the way it comes across, has been altered.

Good luck.

el aspecto y las sensaciones


Explanation:
La propuesta es sólo una posibilidad, ya que el significado es que se ha renovado tanto la apariencia física del sitio web como las sensaciones que produce en los visitantes.

No se trata de ningún concepto informático concreto, ni tiene ninguna traducción "oficial".

Espero que te sea de ayuda

Hasta pronto

disagree  Veronica Porras Oscco: "look and feel" es un solo termino, ambos están relacionados al aspecto o apariencia / imagen de un sitio web, y además hace referencia a cómo se VE esa imagen y que EMOCION(ES) causa, por eso no se puede dividir el aspecto y las sensaciones.

look and feel
"Look and feel" is a term used to describe the way in which branding and communication messages are reflected in a site.

This may be manifest in image treatment, information structure, type specifications and interface properties.

look and feel The "look and feel" of an application is the way that it is presented. It
includes the mood, level of guidance, and emphasis placed on the various
multimedia components.

Interface

The general meaning is any connection between two pieces of hardware, software, or a user and an application. The most common usage refers to the look and feel of the screen in a program -- all the bars, buttons, colors and shapes that assist the user in understanding and using the program. In the olden times (the early '80s), you interfaced with a computer via keyed-in command-line operations. Then Apple came along and wildly popularized the graphical user interface (GUI): the desktop and icon interface you're probably using right now.

Hope it helps.

Good luck.

aspecto visual y emocional


Explanation:
"look and feel" is actually just one term and it all refers to the "image" or LOOK = how the Web site looks. In addition, it refers to the "look" as physical element or image and also the emotions it is able to awake on the person(s) who see it.
If you do not feel confortable using "aspecto", you could also use "apariencia" or "imagen".
Hope this helps.
