Introducing Polyvore's New Look

Dear Polyvore Community,

When we first built Polyvore back in February of 2007, we weren't sure what kinds of sets people would create. Our best guess was that they might look something like this:


(This was the first set we created)

But over the last 3+ years, the Polyvore community has evolved beyond anything we ever imagined. We never expected the editor to be used to make such gorgeous layouts. Your creativity amazes us!


The Polyvore Community is so Creative!


However, as your sets have evolved to become more and more beautiful, we started to feel that our own site design wasn't quite up to par. It was a little disconcerting to see such stunning sets on a site that looked like it was built in 1999.



So today we're introducing a new look for Polyvore that's simpler, cleaner and more modern. We've brightened our colors, lightened our borders, streamlined our pages, and tidied our grids. (But nothing has changed structurally, so you should still be able to find everything)



The inspiration for our new design was a modern art gallery -- bare white walls with exquisite masterpieces (your sets!) hanging on them. We think the new look does a much better job of showcasing your works of art.

Thank you for 3+ great years and for being such an amazing, inspiring community! If you have feedback or suggestions, just leave us a comment here on the blog.

Love,
The Polyvore Team


P.S. In case you're wondering about the black & white pattern at the top of the site, it's a damask pattern from ColourLovers.com. We plan to switch it up every once in a while, for holidays, for fun, and in tribute to our favorite designers. Here are some of our ideas (and we'd love to hear yours!).



UPDATE 8/21/2010 4:07pm PST: If you have been having issues with logging in, using the editor, or missing images, please see our latest blog post here for more details. We believe the problems (which weren't related to the new design) are now fixed . Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for all your patience! Have a great Saturday.

Cool. First Comment??
Anyways, I don't really know if I like the new design that much, but I take time to adapt to things so, wo knows? I'll probably grow to like it, now that I've seen a reason behind it and not just to change to change. Kepp up the good work Polyvore!

Gothic_Pheonix said...

This is ridiculous...it was better before because now the colors are too bright, and we actually can't see a lot of the things and making the comments and other icons black and white was a terrible idea. You shouldn't have changed this

nikkeeb said...

LOVE the new look!! i always thought polyvore could use a makeover that made it look as awesome as it truly was - great job! :)

The new layout? I frickin' love it!
THANK YOU ♥

The rainbow color icons were not confusing! Now everything is blue, black and white. Everyone misses the color. It looks depressing now. Please at least change the icons back to colors! And also the set titles should be above the set! I do like the change but I also don't like a few of the things. Sorry!

I love it(: I think it's great that Polyvore has got changed a little, but not too much. I think it looks more sophisticated and more fit for a fashion website. Thank you Polyvore for making this site amazing!

I like the design on the top, but it kinda looks too perfessional and stuff. maybe a bit more color....=/

everything looks great but i think we should be able to pick our own design bar thing at the top of the page

chloe138 said...

I wasn't so sure at first but I think this will be good, the one thing I don't like is that the writing is quite small now, and the page is thinner. But I like the idea of Polyvore being more like an art gallery with bare white walls. Also love the idea of changing up the border from time to time.

Not too bad Polyvore! xxx

i liked the bright colors and bold look! everyone does! but the new polyvore is a little too small-it hurts my eyes!!

I think that Polyvore looked so much better as t was! It was very simple and fun. You were sort of inspired to get out of your box, like it was a blank canvas. Now, it's all very neat and organized. There isn't much blank canvas, only black and white. I loved the look as it was before.

Kirstie said...

I love it so much.
It's so sleek.
Before, it was definitely a site built for teenage use.
Now, it's more versatile.
great job:)

I like this Polyvore. But I kind of miss the colors. It looked so fun && inviting. Now its kind of bland. But I still love everything else. I've been using polyvore for about a year now && I have really no complaints!
Thanks for being a wonderful site for me to express my creativity!!

but i LIKE the 'childish' palette,its was bright and fun, now, polyvore is drab... and kind of boring, sophisticated doesnt always have to be boring....so maybe you could put something where we could choose, like if we want the old version or new version, so we, the members who mad polyvore what it is today, could have a say in what it looks like

I like that you've decided to give Polyvore an update and make it look all modern. It's very different and it gives Polyvore a whole new feel but I think that it stops retro, arty and cartoony sets look strange with the classy look. I think Polyvore's users should be allowed to choose the layout, but that's just my suggestion. Thank you anyway.

I personally dont like it at all. There aren't any colors, and its boring. Bring back the colors on the sidebar. Plus I can barely read anything here, the text is WAY too small. >:( I am not amused

Everyone I've asked says they dislike the new design. It's so plain and simple, not the bold colorful website I used to love. Please change it back.

-&Anh; starry-eyed [w o n d e r] said...

I think it's nice, but sort of resent it at the same time. Maybe a bit of warning would have been a bit nicer instead of just having the old one one second and the next second the new layout. I can understand the need to have a more modern layout, but it seems that a lot of people have grown to like the old layout :)
Also, have you changed the appearance of the logo?

Taylor said...

Dear whomever is concerned,
I love the new layout. It looks very organized but I have two requests that I want Polyvore to have like a instant messaging type thing or where you can have a group chat like chatzy or tiny chat. And a online & offline button.

but the sets are so small and there is gray on both sides of the screen.

Honestly it just washes away all my inspiration:/

I wish the sets were a little bigger on the home page and there was more color:)

I LOVE THE Layout. Blue and pretty.

But one thing you changed everything but some people have requested the save Item thing under the collection items to makes things a bit easier. Thank you! xD but OTHER WISE THIS IS REALLY SEXY!

Aakacub said...

This looks really cool. I love the photographic border and the fall border. ^^ I think maybe we should have options on what border at the top we could use, though. I, for one, don't like some of them as much as the others, and I'd be happy to leave my favorite of the borders up as long as I can.
Also, I was wondering about the color palette. Just one idea that came to me (and you don't have to do this, seeing as it might take some work) was to let users code their own colors to personalize Polyvore to the way they want. I know that would take a lot of work, but it seems like a good idea to me, and I know some of my friends would like it that way. Just a suggestion.
Thanks for reading!

Dear Polyvore,

I LOVE the new layout, it looks very classy. :)

But there is one thing that annoys me a little.

The thing that I don't really like is that the title of the set is now on the right. It doesn't make sense to me, because the set is on the left and the normal placement of a title is over the thing in which it is title-ing (yes, I made that up, but I couldn't figure out how else to word it).

Just some food for thought.

Love,
dreaming insomniac ϟ

I personally will be missing the old layout. I didn't find it childing and bulky at all. I find Polyvore to be a site full of boldness and pizzaz, calling out for everyone to see what it has to offer. Now, the whiteness is bland and hurting my eyes, making me strain to see what people are posting. The P of polyvore is now no longer exciting and unique, as polyvore sets should be, but plain and normal, taking away from it's characteristical spunky look. It looks more like a work site now, rather than a place to feel at home. A place to be able to share your thoughts when you feel that no one around you will understand. The colors of polyvore brightened up the site, making it seem special. Now, if someone doesn't make a perfect set, it will look out of place. It's not welcoming as it always was. Black and white may mean modern, but it also means perfection, which not everyone is able to achieve. So I, for one, do not like this new design. I love polyvore, but it's not look makes me feel as if it is not as welcoming as it once was. Perhaps there is a balance between the two.

I like how it's modern and sophisticated. I knew that was what you were trying to get at...but I happened to like the colorful childish palette(: it makes it so much brighter! remember, teens are on here too! another thing, why is the title about our username? it would be better above the set. thanks for listening. -Aparna

Anonymous said...

The words are too small and it hurts my eyes to read it. There's no more color or life to this website anymore- it's so plain and boring. "Modern" is NOT the way to go. Please, I'm begging you to change it back. This used to be my favorite website. I was in love with the old design. I want to see it again.

I like the changes a lot! Thanks Polyvore!

I think it doesnt look as modern. It's all spaced out and the titles are way to far to the side. Its not even like a title. And the old logo was perfectly finee. It honestly looked very modern to me.

yankeegrl506 said...

I don't know...I really like the new carousel. And I know you were trying for a more sophisticated look, but I think there's too much blue. The icons, especially, aren't as distinguishable, and the font, especially without the underline, looks a little plain to me. Also, I like the idea of the changing design on top of the page, but right now, i think it looks a bit awkward. Maybe if the strip was slightly wider?

val said...

i actually likeed the colors on the buttons under the carousell, it was easier for me, and the colors for the Recent Activity section :P

Anonymous said...

I really like the new layout! It think it's really sophisticated. But, I actually really liked the little touches of color in the symbols. This much white and light blue is hurting my eyes. That's all. Other than that I really like it. And I really like the border at the top now. -mem9393

Love the new look! So clean and fresh; and as promised, still easy to navigate and "familiar". Thanks for such a wonderful site!

catherineh97 said...

I'm still unsure about whether or not I like it. xD And seriously, my whole Homepage is filled with text sets, I don't know what to think.
I really do not like the new colour pallet. The little icons that are now grey? I think the other ones were better. There's a fine line between sophisticated and simply demure.

But, I do appreciate the need to keep Polyvore updated and modern. Without change, where would we be?

Anonymous said...

can you add back the "blog" button to the top of the page please? It would be easier to access the blog if the button is where we can easily get to. thank you and I love the changes y'all have made. One more thing, when you make big changes to polyvore (i.e. this one) could you please make an announcement to everyone here, that changes are coming? It would make it easier instead of just refreshing polyvore and *BOOM* change to the site. Just maybe say "On this date we will be making some changes to polyvore" and we can be ready! :) thank you so much -L. :)

LOLauen said...

I like the idea of customising the layout with season, but I think it would be cool, and appeal to a broader audience if you gave options for us to control the theme colors on our homepage, etc. There is a vast amount of people on here, and they vary ages and gender, and definatley personality, so im sure they would like to make Polyvore their own, such as Yahoo.com, they have a small panel on their homepage where you can choose what color out of orange, green, yellow, pink, blue, and white, what they want their Yahoo! homepage to be.

Thanks for reading

One more thing! I think the titles of the sets should be moved back to where they were before. You kinda have to look for them now, whereas before, they were a lot more noticeable.

Lizze said...

ok, i LOVE the fact that you guys are aiming for something more modern, but the icons are blue ang gray now!!! it looked so much better when it had more color to the icons!!! (plus its easier to tell which is which) would it be possible if you could put the color back into the icons? thanks!!!

i would ike to see the title return the left side with the set to which it belongs - rather than the right with all the other unrelated sets and items within it.

I'm all for improvement, but this seems rather unnecessary. It's simply change for the sake of change and makes the site somehow look cheap. But I'll probably become accustomed to it as I have some of Polyvore's other arbitrary "improvements".

I have to say I kinda liked the multiple colors - it was the BEST way to distinguish the different functions with that small print.

The icons were so neatly organized, it made using 'my homepage' easy and very user friendly.

Thank you for making Poly better! I mean, I love Polyvore since I found out about it accidently on the web, and it is an amazing site since ever but brighter lines, better colors and more usable set tools are really improves the site.

Plus I lovedddd the idea of that the web page is like a modern art gallery and the sets are the art pieces. So poetic:]

Oh and I also loveee the cute line on top - it is such simple line but can be used for so many things such as the google-logo that they are designs differently for special occasions like holidays! So this is my idea: before any special event like the birthday of someone who has somthing related with fashion or architecture or just the day a human landed on the moon - it is a good place to put a little drawings about it and if you click on it it will explains ya what it is about=]

Love Polyvore, and I seriously can not imagine my life without it.

It actually WASN'T confusing, or ugly, or chunky.

CHANGE IT BACK. The old Polyvore logo looked 10X more ORIGINAL, this one seems trendy and boring.

The Nav bar wasn't ugly, it made it really easy to find the main features of the site.

The palette of icons, again, made it easy to find each feature. The stuck out more, know I think I'll end up accidentally pressing embed instead of email if I don't pay attention 100% of the time, thanks.

You guys need to learn that ''if it ain't broke, don't fix it''.

Especially because you JUST had one major change, then you go and revamp something else that no one ever complained about.

i do not like the new polyvore layout. everything is so much smaller and hard for me to see even with my glasses. I find it less colorful. I liked it better when it was colorful. Everything seems squished and too close together now. If you are going to change polyvore, then why not put things that we would like. Like active/inactive. When you log on you would be active, but you can turn it to inactive if you dont want anyone to know your online. Or like you should be able to add items from a collection without clicking on every single one. I do not like it. please change it back.

I like it I just wish it wasn't so bland and I liked it with more color.

A zebra Pattern that would be cool!

I think it makes everything a little to classy. I feel like it's too professional...the new designs for some reason make me feel that Art and Writing sets are non existant...

Thanks, Naomi

POLYVORE....you AMAZE US!!

Damask is a elegant look that is universal. My favorite, in fact!
The neutral palette gives our profile a streamlined look...simplistic yet modern and sophisticated! My sets *POP*...and look even more beautiful than before...you are right! The grids are gone...fantastic! The *showcase* is much more visible. The writing we do to accompany our sets looks professional and *clear*...! I co-mod several groups and our Group format is WONDERFUL!
I LOVE IT....at last...nothing but *class*...!!!
AWESOME JOB...Polyvore Team!

I'm really loving the sleek new look! It's chic and modern, just like Polyvore. I never thought the old look was bad, but this certainly is a great improvement. Thanks Polyvore team!

Hi there,
Thanks for all your hard work to improve our best site ever (polyvore).
The new style is amazing (I love the pattern idea at the tope of the site).
However, I hope if you would keep the colors of the trophies and the other small icons like before. The colors were much better than the grey color now.

But for all the other changes, I think you made a gr8 job =).

Thank you
LOU

I HATE THIS!!!! CHANGE It BACK!!!!!!!

Thea Maia said...

I love the new appearance, but the small size of the font is a problem for my eyes. Is there a way to increase the font size in the navigation bar and other places?

In all other ways, I love it!

I also very much appreciate the fact that you are supporting the artists here was well as the fashion!

sorry...but my eyes are shocked...and headache..

I don't really like it.
The text was really small before, and now it's even smaller!
Also I don't like how the set names are not on top of the set, and instead are on the side. :/
Nice idea but.. please change polyvore back. D:

I think that it is a nice layout and the fun new top of the page is really cool, but everything would look better if it were slightly larger. And the old "rainbow of color" was nice, I think that everyone liked all of the fun lively color! :) I think it would keep people happy and still look cool and sophisticated if you kept some old and changed to some new as well, but the drastic change has thrown everyone off corse! Oh no! :0
Love,QueenLuxa!@

I like everything, EXCEPT THE BLACK AND WHITE PATTERN. For people who create minimalist, alternative or other types of sets, it makes no sense to have an ornate, damask pattern. It's totally distracting, and seems outdated rather than modern.

don't change a thing back, love it!

love it! everything is much more organized and chic:)

ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! Don't ya just hate it when you work hard and people don't like the changes? So first i'll say thanks for all your hard work on the PV site.

BUT..... i'm not crazy about the new layout. In fact, i really don't care for it at all. :( I agree with others that the font is too small, i miss the brighter colors, and the nav bar and member names are too light, making them all harder to read. The bolder blue was much better. Also, the BLOG and HELP buttons are missing from the upper right corner - will you be putting those back?

Also, the new "border" on top is too busy and very distracting. I'd like to see that gone completely!

Like someone else said, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Sorry, i wish i could say i love it, but i don't!

i think plaid is ok for top.

The new Polyvore looks great! Much more chic and sophisticated! It's like Polyvore went from a pre-teen girl into a grown independent women!

Anonymous said...

I don't like it. :/ The colors are boring and everything is all squished into the middle, making it smaller. We have a screen this size for a reason, why are we only allowed to use the middle? And I really don't see why it should look "sophisticated." It's supposed to be for FUN, right?
Really there was no reason to do this. It looks more outdated than the old design.

The previous Poly style was more comfortable. First of all, the name of the set was in a top of it... and now???
The second, why messages became too small???
And thirdly, previous Poly was more cheerful without that B&W icons!

Change is often hard to accept even if it is change for the good and I am not too sure that this is change for the good. The simplistic style of Polyvore was what made it so unique; we, the creators, felt as if we were sitting in a fashion studio putting together gorgeous fashion pieces but now it feels too 'put' together, as if mistakes shouldn't be made to ruin the shiny new site. On a practical note, the 'explore' 'home' 'ask' etc iconss are too small, the border at the top is distracting, the profile and home pages are too narrow and it seems to slow my computer down. As my Gran always used to say 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it...'

Bethhee said...

I love the new layout but the loss of colour on the icons makes it more confusing. The colour separated them. But other than that, it's great!

I appreciate how many changes you have made to Polyvore. I've noticed how sometimes things are changed and go back to the way they were a few days later, presumably from feedback.

I really dislike the header design. It's not "me" at all and my page feels cluttered. Perhaps an option to have your design appear or not?

Thanks for listening to our feedback.

those top bars all look like Word Art. Still a techie look and feel to the site. very distracting too. at least let us choose our own neutral color for the top. it gets in the way of making a set. but we'll all get used to it, i'm sure.

Anonymous said...

I DO NOT LIKE IT!!!
CHANGE IT BACK!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

The colors weren't confusing they made things easier actually.

And an idea instead of setting picking designs for us let us pick our OWN.

Bethany1141 said...

Sorry to say, but the only change i like is the thing at the top of the page... I find it hard to use the blue buttons as I cannot see them clearly because it is too bright, also I am a big fan of colors for the link icons! Anyway, If you could change it that would be ultra awesome (Like that cool thing at the top of the page XP)

Everything about this new layout hurts my eyes, there's too much white space, the pattern on top distracts from the set, the text IS EYE STRAINING SMALL, and all of the new grids are sooo dysfunctional. AGAIN POLYVORE, PREVIEW CHANGES TO SEE HOW THE COMMUNITY REACTS TO IT BEFORE GOING AHEAD AND DOING IT. that is all. :)

i don't really like it.. i like the old polyvore..

Goodness, the new layout is just so odd looking. I think a lot of the guys would have a problem w/ how girly the border looks. And uh, I just think that a lot of people are used to the old layout & don't behave well to change. I think PV was better the way it was [=

I HATE THIS NEW FRIKKING LAYOUT.
IT OUTRIGHT SUCKS AND ITS GIVING ME ND A FEW OTHER MEMBERS MASSIVE FRIKKING HEADACHES! SWITCH THE DANG THING BACKKKKKKKKKKK!

Bethany1141 said...

I loved the rainbow icons >:(

at first i was like "change? ... scary! bad! run away!" but its actually not that bad and i like it now..

but please put the set titles back on top of the set.. because it kinda looks like the set title is actually the creators name.. and instead of gray buttons for the recent site activity can you at least make them blue like the above buttons.. the gray is a little drab and dull compared to how it used to be so colorful...

Anonymous said...

thanks for working on the site, but NO THANKS to the changes. I really liked the old look of Polyvore. It was easier to read, bigger fonts, bolder colors - there was nothing childish about it! Now it's hard to read and some buttons are missing too.

I think the page is actually now too busy and cluttered looking - making it harder to show off the sets. Plus the colored side panels and top patterned banner are very distracting - having the opposite effect of a smooth and polished look.

Maybe after looking at all the feedback, you could keep some of the new changes, and add them to the older look that people liked so much.

Change is easier when it's for the better - but these changes don't really seem better!
