It's done! I've spent a few too many hours working on the new design the last few days as I wanted to have it done before my week of hiking in Switzerland. But what a beauty!

Veboli isn't the only site on the Internets I use, and I seemed to have been collecting a lot of useful tips over the past few weeks and months. Once I started tweaking the home page when you're logged in, I saw that what I was working on wasn't just any old update. No, no, I was starting on the definitive design for Veboli!

Here you can see a truncated version of what I started with:

Black on top and bottom, white for the content, text for the recent activity, and large posters for showing the movies.

And here you can see what I turned it into:

The first step I took was showing the movies as a horizontal bar. That makes more sense with text and provides more order when you've got a bunch of movies (like on your recommendation page). I then removed the specific recommendations and added trending movies. (Don't worry, the specific recommendations can be accessed via the recommendations menu.)

To round it of, the menu bar on top became white, the content a light shade of gray, and the bottom became a dark shade of blue which now has icons for social media (including Instagram!).

You can already filter pretty precisely on Veboli. For example, you can limit your recommendations to certain genres, years, country, recommendation, and certainty. Starting now, you can do the same with keywords.

Because it's International Women's Day today, we're starting with female directors. Below are the best movies with a female director.

Poster for Mustang with an average rating of 8.5.
Poster for Persepolis with an average rating of 8.4.
