Haha...the Brits will get quite miffed if you say "favourite" is a typo. Next you'll be correcting "colour" and "theatre" and "customise". Shapeways should certainly be consistent about using the British vs. American preferred spelling.

Americans will scratch there head and have to go to dictionary.com to look up miffed lol. You know how us Americans are, There's the right way to do things and then there is the rest of the worlds way of doing things. Razz. Either way doesn't matter to me but like dadrummond said, consistency. It only stuck out because one of the other pages said favorites. Jolly Good, Righteo Surprised .

Before a big forum fight starts Wink : We attend to use American english on the website, but sometimes it's difficult if it's not your native language.

To stay ontopic: Please give your feedback about the new homepage,
i'm interested in what everybody thinks of it

By the way: I'm the new designer, see my introduction here

Ok, well I like what you did in all of the "some of our favorites" sections. I like the look of the items with the price tag and all. Really makes the ones on the home page look bland though. The top of the page is gorgeous, the bottom is like "what's this crap". Not saying that any of the stuff on the bottom is crap, just not as spiced up as the top.

The site is too "wide". I am on a MacBook Pro 17" and it is even "wide" for my resolution. Check the bottom safari scrollbar to see what I mean:

The width of the site hasn't been adjusted during the update. But I presume this was already the case before the update?

You're right about the inconsistency regarding (for example) gallery items. We're slightly trying to redesign the website and this is also something we're working on

It wasn't that wide in the beginning. It became very wide after a previous update (about a month ago I think...).
But no, certainly not, it is not the last update that made this.

Love the look, and love the choice of themes, and selected items when one visits a theme page. It's starting to look more appealing to consumers, which (in my view) is great for shop owners. Much more professional look.

I agree with others that the look really needs to extend throughout the site.

A major improvement on the homepage is increased use of professional-quality photography for items. Better pictures make the items more appealing. On that note, I'd like to see an upgrade in the default rendering of items; an ability for any designer (not just those with shops) to set their item's main thumbnail so that we can further reduce the prevalence of default renderings; and a definitive marking of "render" vs. "photograph" on all uploaded images. This last item will allow Shapeways to always display real photographs whenever they exist.

i like it Smile very tight.
Takes a bit of getting used to for the people who know the previous version, but i'd say its an improvement.

I think this is new: Gallery -> Theme overview. Before I sometimes couldn't figure out how to navigate to a particular theme page.

I like the new look!

You're right, that's also new. Before this menu item the only way to visit theme pages was by banners.
