Technically this will be more for the company's that hire side (not the dribbble player side)... so might be a good idea to keep it a little different for them. Thinking out loud here.
I personally feel like it feels very out of place compared to the rest of the site. Unless dribbble is doing a redesign I think that this is not really working. I also think that everything is very tight in the green area spacing wise.
Need to see more. Maybe it's part of a larger redesign?
We've been working new type into other areas (Equipment, Blog) and will be slowly working that branding into other marketing pages here on the main site. It's what we're working on :)
@Dribbble Makes sense :) Looks good regardless.
Needs more pink.
I agree with those who say it doesn't fit the Dribbble aesthetic. I think it's the choice in font.
I really like the direction Dribbble is going with this design. I would be interested to see something like this be implemented in the shot upload page.
I think Llamas should have the right to vote.
I want to work fo Turbo Steel, hot new startup? ;)
Great work @Dan Cederholm , @Rich Thornett and Team!
@James Madson Just googled them... Apparently they compete with Viagra...
Also noticed you guys changed the List drop-down to accommodate for blocking a user. Not a fan of the additional click and the potential for a misclick whose repercussions are the exact opposite of the other action you'd be making there. I think it would have made a lot more sense to make it a button floating to the right of the rest of the Follow | List | Hire set or left it in the sidebar.
Are people really having as many problems with other users as they are in wanting to add them to Lists, especially at the expense of inconveniencing paid users?
I like trains.
Not a huge fan of the green, but like the design in general and it's hard to tell what the green will look like on a full screen, so as you guys are better designers than me, I'll believe in you :D
However one this I wanted to say (and it may have already been said, sorry I'm lazy I didn't read all the long comments) but shouldn't the steps be below the title.
So it's what your doing, where your up-to & what you have to go, and then what you have to do to get there.

Agree with the other comments. I think this is the first shot from dribbble that I don't like. Doesn't seem to fit with the current site visual direction.
The critiques given in this shot is exactly why I love dribbble. We use the site, we realise the shot doesnt really fit with the overall visual style of the site, and we explain why & give opinions on how to make it better. Now if only more people did that to everyday shots, instead of "Looks cool" :)
(I am definitely a little biased, but I didn't design any part of this so I think I'm objective enough to have a valuable opinion.)
This new stuff Dan is working on is brilliant. Brilliant. Here's why.
The Dribbble "visual style" / "aesthetic" has always been playful and a little bit old-fashioned, believe it or not. I mean, come on; bright pink is straight out of the 1950s. The basketball logo is simple, almost cartoonish. Now, he's calling up the brand's green color - yes, this green has been around on the site in a subtle way for years - and it works so very well. It's only a hop away from a '30s green, and it plays wonderfully with the script wordmark.
And then, there's Proxima Nova Extra Condensed. From the typeface creator's own description: "Proxima Nova straddles the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk." Two mid-century icons. Geometric, yet humanist. In all caps, the font looks like it hopped off a '50s hand-lettered sign.
The combination of the handwritten script accompanying a tall, narrow sans-serif font has been in style since before our parents were born. Good design is truly timeless, and the melodies played here have been played for nearly 100 years. This isn't a flashy, trendy new style. This is a coda. And it's superb.
These are the Daves I know.
Guys, I really have to agree with @Zethus Suen on this one.
Like the green. Hate the font.
