This is a bi-weekly update of work the design group contributed to. Work happens in overview issues, and in needs design, or needs design feedback issues.

Showcase launch

A refreshed Showcase has just launched. Have a look!

Openverse modal search

We started exploring some ideas for searching and browsing Openverse images from the image blockBlock Block 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..

Syntax search

As part of the ideas for 2024, we began exploring ways of interacting with filters through syntax codes. Filtering in the search input is an idea that have been noted and these early explorations aim to test assumptions about it.

Image compression

Initial mockup for an image compression feature within the Editor. Issue.
