Today, the design changed:

enter image description here

  • All white
  • Background grid reminiscent of subway tiles
  • Conveys an appearance of a clean room or surgical bay
  • Completely unfriendly, and uninviting.

The previous design had sort of a “lounge” atmosphere. This comes across as the entire opposite direction.

This design seems more suitable for a site for surgeons or microchip designers, not for artists. The site design should reflect art more than a "clean room" in my opinion.

This bug has been fixed. More details can be found on my answer over on Meta Stack Exchange:

This issue has been fixed. Short version: There was an upstream change in our Stacks library that caused the css specificity of the default theme to be higher than the network themes. As a result, the default theme was applied to all of the components (buttons, fonts, and so on) across the network. We put in a quick (but reliable) fix on the Stack Exchange-side of things while we look into addressing the root cause in Stacks.
