The redesign has made great progress over recent weeks and we would really like to share this with you!
Below is a link to the latest iteration of the redesign prototype. Please take the time to look through the pages and feedback your thoughts and ideas in this thread.
We also welcome comments on the initial design and visuals, and as with previous weeks, all posts here will be read and fed back into the redesign process
Don't forget to keep browsing the Flickr group (http://flickr.com/groups/drupalredesign/), and if you aren't doing so already, there is still plenty of time to follow the redesign on Twitter (http://twitter.com/drupalredesign)
Thanks for your continued support and interest in the project!
[EDIT - 24 October 2008]
Following some comments on this thread, I've had a quick look at amending the design visuals for this initial direction:
They're at the foot of the latest prototype iteration index: http://drupal.markboultondesign.com/iteration5/
- The masthead now has a background of gradiated blue. A nod to the history of Drupal, showing a clear evolution. As wmostrey hinted to, the blues are what makes Drupal.org look like Drupal.org. Maybe we should be taking that on board.
- I've included tabs in the logged in homepage - of course, this would need further refinement
Some small changes. Question is: blue background, or not?
Personally I think it works, but only with the iconless wordmark. It certainly looks a little more Drupal than before.
