New Design is now LIVE!

So a little while back I revealed what the new design was going to look like. Well, despite taking a little longer than expected, the new design is now LIVE! Celebrations all around!

Seriously, though, this has been something I've wanted to do for so long but it just wasn't within my finances to do so. When we were finally able to start working on it back in June, I wanted it to look perfect. While I now know that nothing is ever going to be perfect, I'm damn proud of the design we have now. No longer will I have to explain to everybody why the design was so lackluster.

There's still some more work to be done, of course. Next on the list is a private messaging system and a forum for discussing/marketing projects. I also want to completely re-do the user profiles, but in what capacity, I'm not sure. I'd like to add a "high score" system and maybe some achievements to help bolster the community some. It's all up in the air, really.

I also need to redesign the blog a little bit better. The logo, obviously, is just a stand in for now until If ind the time to rip the real one from the .psd.

So what do you think? What do you want changed? Over the next month or so we'll be tweaking some designs here and there so let me know now what you want done.



  1. The page looks a million times better!! Nice work, you should be very proud!!
    I'm from uninspired productions and you have featured our project Nom Nom Monkey, we actually made our own link and logo for 8bit funding on our website, it's at the very top, check it out! The only thing I want to know if it has been fixed is in our user profiles I could select Australia but not a state and thus it wouldn't let me update my profile. I had to pick the USA and Alabama as my state. But you guys rock and the new page layout looks amazing, the new featured pics look good, do you want us to email you some better banner pics ect? My features project has 3 of the same YouTube screenshot?
    Big congrats Dan from U.P
