The hub is very nice and useful for future google searches, I think! The header new look doesn’t convince me but I must wait and browse/play with it a little bit:)

Hey,

Nice work but I agree with people who agree that these too much logos right in the header are somehow distracting :S

I think a better solution is an (even) sticky vertical bar with only logos (hover: complete logo + title) that can be removed per user… (Something like the support buttons on the left side or our item switchers…)

Cheers,
Iman

Just wanted to know how long it will take to implement more deeper search filters? Isn’t that most essential?

I can’t answer the search filters timing question, but I can say that work behind this test didn’t distract the folks in the search team.

I feel sorry for FlashDen, it was the flagship website, then it took a hit from Adobe having to change it’s name from FlashDen to ActiveDen, then it took another hit from Apple, and now it’s been degraded to being the last site in the top header :D Just remove it completely and put it out of its misery, shame it deserves more respect ;)

P.S. The new look is a UX / UI fail on many levels.. after all the complaining about homepage improvements not happening after years, this is what Envato has been thinking of doing the whole time? Seriously. The site switcher already existed, this just looks confusing.

If you look at the screenshot you can see how we can’t even see new files yet on that page. do you see how much clutter there is and not showing the relevant content. ie NEW FILES.. come on guys! That welcome block is too big, following files section needs improvement especially if you following alot of authors… I would rather make that a TAB, which shows a whole page of new files, so you could take the whole block off the home page then. Weekly files / free file / featured author also way to big, could be reduced to half the space taken up.

IDEA.. why doesn’t Envato run a competition for the redesign of home page – with all the UI / UX talent on ThemeForest I’m sure we could have an amazing and well functioning solution to the homepage which doesn’t take a decade to do. Sorry this actually becoming ridiculous.

Hi folks, thanks (really) for your feedback and thoughts. We share the same basic concerns around how busy or cluttered the design is (“logo salad” was a favourite internal phrase), but we feel this is a reasonable compromise for the purpose of a meaningful test and an incremental first iteration.

ya I think each logo should be animated, yes? :)

I know it’s not the people who actually are doing these updates that are to blame, these changes come from higher up… but what is clear is Envato’s Marketplace improvements are still focused on expanding the empire, instead of focusing on the communities requests and what could be improved.

STOP expanding the Envato empire, and start FINE TUNING each marketplace.

I’ve always been supporter of most of changes made by Envato but this is literally the worst ‘improvement’ you’ve ever made. I beg you not to change that header to this thing.

Hub on the other hand seems like a great addition.
