Design updates

This past week, we’ve had some new designs pop up:

  • @joen presented these in chat:

  • @joen worked on some more mockups based on his earlier idea:

UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. feedback is welcome, though keep in mind these are still ideas. We’re looking for big-picture issues. 🙂

Getting stuff done

We’re going to continue to work on smoothing out these ideas, then will need some people to help us prototype them. To help that along, we’ve put together a spreadsheet of tasks. If you’re interested in claiming a task, let me know.


We’re pretty deep into various design concepts, but I think I want to also take a step back and evaluate what we’ve done so far. Are we on the right track? To help this, I’ve put together a survey:

Writing Posts in WordPress

Please take this when you have a moment and share it along. The results will be used to help us figure out if we’re solving the right problems, or if we need to step back and try out some different ideas. It will also help us determine if there are any “quick wins” we can implement prior to adding content blocks.

Chat is tomorrow, Tuesday the 24th at 17:00 UTC in #wordpress-ui. I’ll be on a plane, so I might not be able to make it, so @joen has agreed to lead in case of my absence.
