since I don't like the current design at http://wwwtesting.kde.org at
all, I made a proposal how it could look like. Of course, this is only
thought as inspiration, not for flaming anybody or destroying the work
of anybody. I appreciate all the work, however, it is not good.
The main reasons for being pretty rude (in terms saying "its not good"
- Everything is *way* too huge. Most people can see pretty clearly and
have sufficient resolutions to look at regular font sizes. People are
using their browser's settings to increase the font size if necessary.
- The colors are pretty ugly. The logo has smooth colors, and the rest
of the overall design has very strong colors, which doesn't look
professional (I guess we want to introduce "our" project as a
professional one, raising interest in the scene)
- The contrast is very low. If you aim to serve disabled people who
can't see, big fonts without much contrast isn't very good.
- The two column layout is very bad for people with low resolutions,
since they have to scroll alot. I prefer a top-down layout, with a
menubar on top and the submenu in the left column.
I have prepared an inspiration which addresses all of these issues
(don't complain about the text sizes :), maybe it will be of some use:
