To be honest, I'm not really a fan :/
It's less fun and friendly, the design feels a little amateurish and inconsistent in some places, and overall it feels less like a creative, community-powered crowdfunding website and more like a business news blog or something.
Definitely agree it is less fun and friendly. The bright green that it used to have really made it pop and look fresh, and I identified that colour with Kickstarter. The new look, looks like a primary school kid trying to use Wordart and bold for the first time.
