The Design Team provides experience, interface, and visual design expertise for the WordPress project.
Want to get involved? See our handbook and drop into #design once signed up for volunteer opportunities.

Following up on feedback, here’s a second iteration of the Documentation section of WordPress.orgWordPress.orgThe 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. https://wordpress.org/. The best way to review and leave feedback is to first give this prototype a good test, and then consider leaving feedback directly in the Figma file.

A new page in the Extend category, “Blocks” aims to outline what you can do with the blocks in the editor. Read more here!
Style inheritance is becoming increasingly complex, we’ve been exploring ways to communicate the source of a given style, when local overrides are present, and offer shortcuts to make those overrides the default. Issue.
Template details + Inspector relationship
The details panel for certain templates was enhanced in 6.3. As we expand this to all templates moving forwards it’s important to nail down the relationship between the template details panel in the site editor, and the template inspector in the full screen editor. Issue.
Table view and component theming
Expanding the template management experience in the site editor is something we hope to get to in 6.4. A robust Table component should underpin this effort, and will be essential as we explore the admin design in more detail too. A consideration there – additional to the features of the table itself – is the theme-ability of components. Admin themes, contrast preferences, etc should be factored into the design. We’ve been trying some of the new variable tools in Figma to explore light and dark modes, with high contrast and spacing preferences.
Post Formats – blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. style
This initial exploration seeks to offer a quick-publish flow for images, quotes, videos, and other post formats. Partially synced patterns make it convenient for the user to update the design for any format in one go. The format itself is applying intrinsically – if a post consists of only an Image block then it is an image post.
