Toronto’s “mini-sprint”, and Sydney’s KDE/FOSS Community

During the holidays I met up with Eugene Trounev, (aka it-s), one of KDE’s awesome artists to discuss our reorganisation of KDE.org and the design aspects of it (which is coming soon in the series). It was a 2-day meeting and it was my first time meeting another KDE enthusiast face-to-face, as given my inconvenient […]

The kde-www war: part 1

In my initial post, I talked about the wall of text. I described some of the symptoms of the wall of text, and proclaimed that kde.org is terrible. I listed some of the basics of cleaning up text, and gathered some information about the “why” of kde.org. Unfortunately, KDE.org is representative of a very large […]

Help KDE.org defeat the wall of text.

Everybody knows that effective design is very important to any succesful interface – be it an application, a website, a product, or a physical structure. There are lots of reasons behind this, but the one I’m going to talk about today is how design combats the most dreaded wall of text, of which KDE.org is […]

KDE.org relaunch with a brand new design!

I think I can safely assume that although there were signs from the latest mockup that suggested the design that was released today nobody really expected what came out to come out. Well, the final layout is out and recorded as per protocol in the WIPUP project. It can be seen in detail here. As […]

Countdown to KDE 4.4 and the new KDE website: 1 day left

The new KDE website redesign is due any day now (with the release of KDE SC 4.4) and when it’s released you will be able to see how ideas were amalgamated from many different mockups and some which I’ve not had the records to post. The final design is different, much more aligned with the […]

Countdown to KDE 4.4 and the new KDE website: 2 days left

Only 2 days left until the KDE SC 4.4 is released, but apparently the website design is due out on the 8th! Yes, that’s tomorrow. Today’s update shows a stage in the mockup which is natural to designers – the rejection stage. A new idea (in this case, minimalism) is chosen and we try out […]

Countdown to KDE 4.4 and the new KDE website: 3 days left

Yep, it’s just 3 days left until KDE SC 4.4 is released and we see even more polish on yesterday’s design for the KDE website. We’ve now shaped it into a full design and we’re debating which ideas we like from this and which should be thrown away. Click here to check it out. As […]

Countdown to KDE 4.4 and the new KDE website: 4 days left

Another day and we continue to see development on the KDE website redesign. We’re fleshing out the KDE webdesign mockup seen yesterday into a full page and it’s taking shape slowly but surely. Check it out here. As usual you can see the full series (3 in total now) on my WIPUP profile.

Countdown to KDE 4.4 and the new KDE website: 5 days left

Right, it’s a day later and it’s time to see where we’ve gotten with the redesign of the KDE website. As most of you noticed yesterday, the main gripes were with the header of the design. Today’s update is a small but necessary one – one that shows the start of a new design idea. […]
