Design Share: July 18–29

Hi, all! Here are a few projects the Design Team has contributed to over the past couple of weeks. The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. redesign

Last week, new designs were shared for the Homepage and Download pages — two of the most high-traffic pages on the site. Props to @beafialho and @javiarce for the beautiful design work.

Design Library

Clean up of all the icons of the Design Library is ongoing, with flattening the icons being a first step to fix the color overrides of the library. The instructions have also been updated to indicate what’s the preferred internal structure. @javiarce started testing the new functionalities that Figma introduced recently, which will allow us to simplify the components and make them easier to use.

Openverse headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes.

@fcoveram has been iterating on the Openverse header component, taking a new approach to simplify the navigation and content interaction.

WordPress Jobs

@javiarce created a header and avatarAvatar An avatar is an image or illustration that specifically refers to a character that represents an online user. It’s usually a square box that appears next to the user’s name. for the WordPress Jobs Twitter account.

The next default theme

There’s also a proposal on the Make Design blog for a new approach to the annual default theme. What if, instead of emphasizing the theme itself, we highlighted an opinionated set of style variations designed by members of the community? The idea is to use Twenty Twenty-Two as the basis for a new theme that’s stripped back and minimal — a blank canvas to let a diverse range of style variations shine.
