I always find myself using Imgur's awesome image hosting, so thought I could give a try at redesigning it in order to make it much cleaner.
The main task is to allow elements breathe more while giving a better feel.
Currently, this is just the home/default page, but I'm planning to get deeper into the redesign, and do a complete redesign.
Note this is just for practice/portfolio, I haven't been asked to do it.
Also, the first shot this year! Eager to get your feedback, by the way.

Nice one. Not too sure about the search bar though. The inputs looks like the other blocks. I would also expect it above the list?
@Ivo Ruijters | Around Seven Yeah, wasn't sure about making it pop out, I'll look more into it. However, the search function is not that important in my point of view, because the main thing with Imgur is to upload images. Exploring it is secondary.
However, appreciate your suggestion and thanks!
Use that 'create a meme' green on the image upload, and strip the prominence from the 'create a meme' button and I think this would be awesome :)
Good work man.
One word. Awesome.
Really slick looking, it's minimal but keeps the elements necessary to imgur's image.
I like it :)
A *much* needed redesign.
This looks excellent Cosmin! I hope someone from the site sees it and appreciates it at least one tenth as much as we do. :)
"Use that 'create a meme' green on the image upload, and strip the prominence from the 'create a meme' button and I think this would be awesome :)"
Came to comment basically this. It took me a second to figure out how to upload an image, which us how I use imgur. I upload something to quickly share with someone and forget about forever.
I am the only one that finds the dark blue green 'next button' very disgusting and ultimately inconsistent? (on the official design of course, not this).
Great work on this rework by the way.
Liking the colours. Nice design. Neat
"Create a meme"
I love the aesthetics of this! Simple and flat. I agree with above critiques about making the upload image emphasized rather than the meme button (our stress will always be more on uploading). I like the colors you are using, but we will always stick close to our official green (because it is a part of our trademark I believe).
I love your emphasis on allowing elements to breath, that to me is one of the biggest short comings of our UI.
-- FYI: I have only been a dribbble lurker since getting this account 3 years ago. Came out because I couldn't resist the chance to talk about where improvement is definitely needed on our site.
Yes please... good job!
@Tony Guglielmi I just changed the green cause I liked my version more, but that's just something personal :)
However, I find Imgur a very important tool for sharing images. The app itself is very simple & straight to the point. That's why I think it wouldn't be such a hassle to actually improve it's UI.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to see what you guys come up with!
