Look at the date it was submitted/updated - it's designed for 3.2.
I'd recommend Freize for a 3.4/upcoming 3.6 theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Frieze+Gnome+Shell?content=150529

Good theme, but I think

.app-filter {
padding: 8px 8px;

looks better.

I love this theme, and still think it's the best shell theme around, but I much much MUCH prefer 0.1's representation of Windows/Applications - that highlighted the current selection, now 0.3 *de*highlights the current selection, and is just confusing - not exactly Gnome-esque.

Fonts: I think, need to be generally 9px not 10px.

When icons are represented in the dash they look far better smaller - especially with Faience/Faenza.

And I much preferred the panel with semi-transparency you had in 0.1 rather than rounded corners.

Just trying to give useful feedback! (Yes, I've hacked my own version.)

Great theme!

I was wondering if there is a way to change the size of the icons in the 'Activities Tab'?

I tried editing the /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css file, but was unsuccessful. I tried to change the lines:

.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 118px;
}

.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 96px;
}

but nothing happened.

Great changes you did there in 0.3 - especially the invert-rounded panel, love it!

Keep the awesome work coming! :D

Why did you turn off the panel's beautiful slight translucency in the latest version? :-(

And on my system at 1366x768 with 10pt Cantarell at default 1.0 scaling factor the text in the "Type to search..." box in the overview is clipped vertically so that the letter 'y' in "Type" has its tail clipped and looks like a 'v'. Can you correct this?

The comments above are right. Plus, with opaque panel, there no problem with global menu.
Anyway, Faience is a WIP so it is subject to many changes from one version to another. Perhaps, panel transluency will be back in the future.

Because it's either translucency or rounded panel corners.

+1 for rounded corners, btw.

Hmm.... I did not know that you cannot have both at the same time.

Well, basically you can, but it looks ugly with maximized windows. Fake transparency would help, I guess...

I adapted the panel code to make the panel translucent as well as rounded, and there are no issues with any windows, maximised or not. The panel can be very easily made translucent as well as rounded at the same time, no problem at all, and it looks great.

Excelent theme, but how can I change overview red text color to black or white?

I love this theme but I don't like that red color text. I opened every css file under .themes/Faience/gnome-shell but I wasn't able to find it...

Thanks in advance.

The problem might be caused by the 'Native window placement' extension, you should uninstall it and then reload the theme.

Really good work, love and use this theme now. Just want to make the favorite(dash area) icons in left side more bigger, decrease the icon border spacing. How to do it? Thanks!

Really wonderful. But now, in GNOME 3.2 the user status tab doesn't show the picture and the mouse-hover effect on the bar element is not centered.. Can you fix it?? :)

In case anyone else wants to change the icon size in Overview/Activities mode...

Open gnome-shell.css and find the 'Apps' section (currently starts on line 569)...

EDIT:

.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 118px;
}

.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 96px;
}

TO:

.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 70px;
}

.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 48px
}

Wonderful. Simply wonderful. But would you consider reducing the size of the icons (to something like Zukitwo's shell theme)? I can do it manually - it just I don't understand Gnome 3's thing for super-large icons, look too ugly.

Awesome theme, quite what one would expect from the genius behind the greatest iconset ever made! ;)

One thing, though: Have you ever considered adopting the invert-rounded corners for the panel like in the original Adwaita theme? I really like this style. Or is there an easy way to do it myself?

P.S.: Can't wait for your GTK3-Theme to be released - hurry up, goddamnit! ;)

I loved this theme, but this happens with nearly all gnome shell themes as you can see here (the big space to the right of the folders in the extension, it's ugly):

http://goo.gl/JjvOp

The extension is:
gnome-shell-extensions-places-menu-3.0.2-1.g63dd27cgit.fc15.noarch

If you open up the gnome-shell.css file and find the popup-menu field, change the min-width to something smaller. Mine's set at 150px. It works well for me.
