The WP8 Start Screen needs to change.

I love the metro design language. I like clean design and I always been fond of traffic / metro signs, but I think that the Start Screen and live tile are getting tired. It's even ugly. If you compare it to the Bing or most of the OS, it's fall short.

Map / Sign:

Ff_meta-zurich_map2_medium

Baylower-onemetre_medium

Bing:

Bing-homepage_medium

Bing1_medium

Lock screen:

Windows_developer_preview_a_lock_screen_print_medium

Windows-phone-7-wp7-lockscreen_medium

So, what's that? Start Screen:

Wp8_standard_medium

I'm not a fan of the Windows 8 Start Screen design, but it looks little better:

Windows8-startscreen1_medium

So I opened photoshop and tried something that I think could look better. I'm not designer, but...

With border:

Wp8_custom_medium

Without border (my favorite):

Wp8_custom2_medium

Like I said, I'm not a designer, but it kind of follows better the rest of the OS and design philosophy origin that the current start screen. The Metro design language was suppose to push forward text and content, not flashy colour.

I'm waiting for your comments.
