Something's different – I can't quite put my finger on it...

OK, so the more observant among you will have noticed that the Simonseeks site has had a facelift - a new paint job if you like. Don't worry, we haven't made any scary changes to the functionality of the site, but for some time now we've been working towards strengthening our brand and generally giving the design a good tidy up.

I hope you find the changes so far an improvement, but we realise we've still got a long way to go, and we'd like the design to be driven by our community as well as us humble designer-type people. We're constantly coming up with new ideas for the site, and there's currently a lot of thought going in to some exciting new site tools and improved page layouts - including a new homepage and guide layout which you can look forward to in the near future. The design enhancements we're making now will give us a good base for these layouts; it's a work in progress.

It's always nice to know that our work is appreciated, but be it good or, dare I say it, downright scathing, I'd love to hear your feedback. I'm fairly new to Simonseeks, but it's amazing how quickly I've been swept up by the enthusiasm of the team and the community. Yes, I realise it's a cliché, but I honestly believe we're building something really special - and here's your chance to get involved.

I'm looking forward to hearing your comments so please leave them below. Come on, I can take it!
