Home page is too long in my opinion. Before, I could see Featured files, New files, files by followed authors, and all that right away. But now, I need to scroll to see “New files” on 1920×1080 resolution, now imagine a customer seeing the site on his 15” laptop… Especially those who visit site for the first time, they will not even know about “New files” section which automatically means new files exposure drops by 60% at least.

Now new design implemented. Honestly, I did not like new design. It is not user friendly at all.
We have to scroll down down. Also there are 2 search bar. I think there will be only 1 sidebar…
They set few think in design to make user friendly. Otherwise it is average design…
When browsing “New Items” on the home page – if you change the category to for example “Marketing Templates” it would be much better if the button below called “Popular Items” went to the the popular page of the Marketing Templates. Otherwise that button is misleading because it will always take you to the same Popular page of All items no matter which category you’re in.
Remember the user has already selected a filter and wants to be in a particular category – so the links below should change to narrow down the search.
Currently if the user wanted to view Popular Marketing Templates – they would have to abandon looking at new items section, and go to the drop down in the main menu – this disrupts the flow when the user is narrowing down his search – ie bad UX.
Also I strongly suggest saying “Switch Category” next to the category drop down – at first glance I didn’t actually notice it was there… this is kinda bad because before the categories were visible and noticeable. That drop down could be bigger / or brighter / or colourful because it’s actually quite a main feature but right now that dull grey colour makes it fade into the background.
A little question. Why is the background behind search neon blue? Isnt the characteristic color for ThemeForest brown like before? I thought the colors of the entire marketplace belong color of their logos.
The others are ok, but why blue for ThemeForest ? Because of Microlancer?
It looks like standard one page template
But i know how hard it’s to do redesign with those 80px thumbnail. It’s a pain
