Suggestion for new design for Open Design Library. You can go test it in http://layers.aalto.fi/. (It is temporary site just for testing the design, don’t worry about making a mess). The design tries to give a modern, minimalistic look that emphasizes the user created content and, while doing as few as possible of its own stylistic statements, it doesn’t turn ugly if the user content doesn’t fit to its expectations.
The goal for the new design is to invite more interaction and stakeholder created content. For this the three main categories ‘Ideas’, ‘Designs’ and ‘Courses and workshops’ have simple names that don’t require understanding of Layers project and our internal jargon to participate. ‘Ideas’ is currently empty, but we will have there all of the general suggestions that can be implemented in many designs, statements like ‘it would be nice if…’ coming from stakeholders and more theoretical claims to base design work on.
Some more explanation of layout:
The source code for new theme is available and open for you to change:
Please give your opinions on this design: 1) to introduce yourself to commenting in general in ODL — in next year we want this to be the place where we discuss designs openly. 2) To suggest improvements. 3) To state your agreement if you think this is a direction where we should be going and if the suggested design goes towards it. These are also voices we need to hear.
