deviantART Front Page Concept by easydisplayname deviantART Front Page Concept by easydisplayname
deviantART Front Page Concept -v3

There are various parts of the design of DA I do not like. As a whole, the design works pretty well, (with the exception of the ancient designed pages) but a lot of the minor pieces that make it up are pretty weak to me. So I created a redesign of the front page. This is what I ended up making.

In terms of features, there are really no new add-ons to what was there. It is primarily layout and design alterations all around. The biggest difference to note is that thumbnails now have a max of 175px instead of 125px.

Notes on copyrights:
The deviantART logo and the icons presented all belong to deviantART. They are not mine, they were created by and for DA, and I in no way claim these images as my own.

The 15 stock images in the main content area are not mine. They are from [link]=photography/street&order=9 They belong to their respective owners, and I in no way claim these images as my own.

The 5 daily deviation images in the footer are not mine. They are from [link] They belong to their respective owners, and I in no way claim these images as my own.

Everything else was created one layer at a time. Please give strong critique, as I want to improve on this. More pages may come. :)

Update: v3
Many new tweaks are around, most notably the header. A big push in minimalism along with a tab concept in place. Channels in the footer is gone, and the sidebar has a few graphical tweaks. Thanks for all the comments so far.

Clean, sleek and easy to use (by all appearances). Bit it would be a pain in the butt to code. Nice work.
