I always seem to be jumping the gun :P
I'll stop coding for now and wait til we get a complete list of everything we want and don't want.

It's a very nice design. I liked it a lot and I'd like to see that
design landing in GIMP.org
Just a few comments:
- Typography: That's Helvetica, isn't it? If that's not a freely
available webfont I guess we won't be able to use it. And since it's
2012, rasterizing titles won't be an option ;-)
What about using a free webfont from www.google.com/webfonts?
Free fonts would make more sense than proprietary for a free software
- Maybe we should discuss what desktop theme to use for the
screenshots. IMO the default gnome3 desktop would be more appropriate
than the theme used (which is Ubuntu's and it isn't even the default
theme in that system). This remark isn't about aesthetics, but making
it easier to contributors to create new screenshots for the site. It
would be more consistent if all of us use the same theme for that.
- I'm not sure about the monochrome Wilber. It's true that the current
incarnations of the mascot will probably look too cartoonish for that
design, but I don't think this version looks much better to replace it.
- I know it's example content, but be careful about some titles like
"Professional Level Photo filters". Many users (and even developers)
can argue that the current state of filters and tools aren't ready for
high end editing, based on the lack of high bit depth processing. Since
most of people seem to think that professional is necessarily high-end,
this could start again endless flamewars. So I'd avise to avoid that
kind of stuff.
- The brick wall looks really cool there, but why is it there? Is it
example texture or is it supposed to say something about the product?
(I hope it isn't a placeholder saying "bang your head here" :-p)
Apart from that I insist that it's a very beautiful design, well
organized, easy to the eyes and with information hierarchies that feel

I personally think that you should take into account the following
* use of grid system like 960gs
* html5 support
* maybe responsive design but first we should check how many visitors
use mobile devices
