Unless you know exactly what you trying to accomplish, I suggest you put a wide berth between you and flat design.

my opinion, but hey, when I upload some crappy looking files, the staff say to me the truth. (I don’t usually mind :) so hope they don’t get mad either )

if we look at these two websites

http://envatomarketplaces.com/ http://www.envato.com/

you will see that currently envato doesn’t have a good webdesigner (referring strictly on the visual side)

These two website just look like someone made some tests in Photoshop trying to learn some webdesign.

I know, because is the same plain “meh” looking, “will never get accepted” design that I come up to, while trying to design a theme for themeforest.

For me, envato.com looks fine; maintains standard. The problem is with envatomarketplaces.com

The former one’s color satisfies our eyes while the later one satisfies only Jonathan Ive’s eye. :D

fine is not an acceptable word for a place full of creative people as envato is :)

Made the transparencies for categories on profile and since they are on dropbox all my items are fine now :D (Something here and there to fix but I was worried by categories buttons).

What about items thumbnails white background? Will this change too?

Don’t agree. Envato.com is excellent. Marketplaces shoud follow in the same direction and be more content (than all these top menus and navigation) oriented.

well, then I’m probably too harsh with myself and I should really design a theme after all, If my result is the same as that from envato.com :)

I think the bg lighter part is not shown in the preview image. […] by lighter background they probably mean #f4f4f4

Correct :)

There are two separate (and related) issues. We’re refreshing some page elements with the existing background color and we’ve started a survey with authors to understand how hard it’ll be to change the background color to something like #f4f4f4 one day in the future.

I was afraid this when preparing my GIFs and this finally happened :) But lighter background I think will definitely better and fresher. So its need to announce new color and announce the date of migration to all authors can prepare in advance.

We’re hoping authors will be able top transition to PNGs that don’t rely on any particular color in most cases, but yes, if we decide to proceed, we’ll pre-announce the date and the color for sure.
