Hi Marc, all,

The Drupal Website Development Team
has been hard at work for the last several days at completing the design of
a proposed Drupal website Frontpage and theme. I would like to offer thanks
to all of the Web Dev. team for the hard "behind the scene work" at getting
this proposal out to the website membership.Special thanks go to Carlos for
his artwork and design suggestions.

We have put these up on the wiki for you to see and discuss. We need
comments on both the Frontpage and general pages theme. Feel free to
question. We are hard at work getting the site ready for early 2011.

Here are the links to the Frontpage and General pages view in .png formats
and the IA (Information Achitecture) and Theme changelog are in .odt. ...
ahem for use with your LibreOffice 3.3 distro. :-)

I'd like to take this opportunity to invite all the people who have
been working on these mockups to join the design list - be it now, or
when the time comes to discuss the look of the future website - we
need to make these decisions in one place so that our end results are
consistent and fit into a unified design strategy, and we need people
to know where to go if they want to contribute design work.

Any future design that is going to be used on the website will be
discussed on the design list, and we won't be having that discussion
be for quite some time considering that the definition of branding
elements is going to be the focus over the next few months. That means
that the designs proposed here, which use current branding (and make
some of it up themselves), will likely be out of date in a few months'

No one expects the Drupal team to define the look of the website -
there is no such mandate. There are other things we need to focus on
before we begin the new website design - April 2011 is a long time
away (although it'll probably seem short in hindsight) considering the
things the design list has yet to work on.
