Ok, I've started on a design prototype -- finally. Interestingly, it does NOT include the logo I've created before (see
previous diary entries). What I like: the black section
includes the title is really high contrast, allows the nav area to be very noticable. Good. The bottom part is still in
limbo. Things that need to be included:
- News (or just headlines a la linux.com),
- Newest themes w/ screenshots (80x60),
- Screenshots (80x60),
- Feature of the Day,
- and headlines from other sites.
The last one is a tricky one, many people oppose it, frankly, I find it useful (but we need more sites to
pull from, like GraphicsMuse
). I prefer an unobtrusive way like this
(that prototype is not under development, it was scrapped
months ago). The 3 column look will probably stick to themes.org
forever, oddly. I
have no idea why.
