My initial feedback is it looks pretty nice.  I sat down, read the documentation for the gerber viewer that comes with KiCAD and started getting my feet wet.

One recommendation for now as I have to leave for choir rehearsal--do the same thing with additional ground traces north and south of the ESD pads on layer 6 as you did on layer 1 to bring the distance between pad and ground down from 15mil to around the same as the pad-to-pad spacing of the ESD component pads.
