An (perhaps unintended) consequence of the new design (e.g. here on Meta Stack Exchange) is that the spacing between the badge icon (the gold, silver or bronze dot) and the number of badges is increased. In my opinion too much: in the figure below, the number of gold badges (11) is closer to the silver dot than the 79.

It happens at more locations, e.g. in the top bar:

although there the text is in the same color as the badge itself, so it's less annoying.

I prefer the old way, as shown e.g. on beta sites:
