Below is a screenshot of my newly designed homepage. I will port it to Magento eventually, as soon as an official release is available.

I’d appreciate some constructive criticism and comments.

Looks very very nice.  Do you use something like Photoshop to draw your layouts?

Looks great - would love to see some internal pages once those are ready.

Very nice.

Would be good for a stock layout for people to build their stores on!

I hope my comments can be constructive.

The menu list triangles on the left are so small, I can barely tell they’re triangles.  Perhaps a colored dot could serve the same purpose and save a graphic download by the client.

On the blue arrow buttons:  The double right arrows are a little too small to see on my setup.  The top of the yellow arrow blends right in to the background highlight, this sort of takes away from the shape of the double arrows at first glance.

Large center green box: The gray font is a little hard to read on my setup, esp. near the top of the paragraph where the background green is lightest.

Top menu above search:  There’s a link that says “cart”, but the right column box is labeled “your cart”.  Perhaps carry consistent naming of the cart page throughout the design.

Blue button with yellow text:  i like it, it sticks out and makes me want to click it.  Maybe it could be used in more places ... ?  just a thought.

Good job overall.  My initial impression was, I like it, I’d use it, looks modern.

Thank you all!
I appreciate your comments. (even the negative ones, but I don’t see them yet. rasberry )

@i960, Yes I did.

Roy, which internal page would you want me to put up here. I’ll try to put them all, but you can let me know which ones to work on first.

Mark, thank you for your comments. I try to go over them soon. I"ll post revisions as soon as I have them.

Oh, and keep’em comin’ :D

How about a product listing layout (with layered navigation) - that would be great.

Roy, (and all of you,)

We started on the design for the product page so that was done first. But we should have the search page with layered navigation up soon, hopefully.

Thank you all for your comments and please do keep them coming, (especially the criticism rasberry ).

So here’s the product page, meanwhile.
