I've been trying to think how we could do a collaborative mood board process, I haven't come up with a good solution so I thought we could just collect inspirational pieces here.

This'll be interesting. I've only done a mood board once. The rest is in my head, which isn't really helpful for anyone else.

Mood board is a loose term. I think we should just talk about what type of design we're looking at and post screenshots.

Is this in general, or for the design of the site http://opensourcedesign.is/ ?

We could use a style prototype http://seesparkbox.com/foundry/our_new_responsive_design_deliverable_the_style_prototype to generate in-browser style tiles to establish colors, type explorations, textures, etc.

@bradfrost This is specific to http://opensourcedesign.is/

I like the idea of a http://seesparkbox.com/foundry/our_new_responsive_design_deliverable_the_style_prototype

I was thinking we could gather some ideas, have some discussion on design inspiration, and then consolidate down to something like that.

Here's some of my thoughts so far, feel free to jump in.

The design should:

  • focus on the content
    • links (resources)
    • articles
    • videos
    • showcases
  • be fairly neutral
  • not be boring (I guess the word delightful fits here, but I'm getting sick of it a bit)
  • invite others to participate
    • the community can post any of the content mentioned above
  • be an ongoing process
  • be defined by a clear and flexible style guide (or style prototype)
  • be responsive (I feel like I shouldn't have to say this)

We could do crowd source illustrations for headers on the articles. Not sure on the organization, but I like the idea of having an open call for design/art of some sort and not just copy.

I think the subject matter would lend itself very well to an http://ia.net/ approach. Very sparse and rich in details, typography, etcetera. I agree that large photography isn't the right way to go.

Maybe we could put a call out there a few days before we publish, and if nothing comes in, we publish anyway. We can have fun with the art direction even without an illustration

I was digging around in sites that I've always enjoyed or liked some aspects of. While I like the minimal approach, I love to intersperse some bright color into the design.
Hightail has a nice clean look to the articles with small amounts of accent color that play well. I like have multiple columns, but plenty of space for the content.
inspire-1_hightail

Snowbird has done a great job in the redesign, especially on the twitter and facebook updates, which can start to look gross, but they kept it type focused.
inspire-2_snowbird

North Temple's site is a bit old, but I still like their archives page. I've always like their branding of a strong sans-serif font with the design of strong color and texture distorting it. It may seem dated now, but I still like it alot.

Here's my 2 cents. Its a site on open source design, so how about letting people submit their designs, maybe just CSS? Like CSS Zen Garden. And then allow people to switch between the various design, and even fork the CSS to create tweaks of their own. Kinda like http://wonderfl.net/ but for CSS on this site. Share designs w/ others, allow them to fork, tweak, etc. See what it morphs into.

@ttimsmith I agree. I feel like we should make something flexible that would let us add an image if one is readily available, or if the community wants to contribute something after the fact, but the design shouldn't be dependent on it.

I think working on a display model would be really good. I'd love to start working on some wireframes. The display model would have stuff like:

Article

  • Title
  • Date
  • Byline
  • Content (paragraphs, blockquotes, ul's, ol's, footnotes)
  • Author info at the bottom
  • Comments

I've been hit by a bit of a bolt of inspiration.

I think the home page should be modeled after a table of contents - since that's pretty much what it is. We could number the articles - instead of having page numbers. I've been through some examples of book table of contents.

Good collection here.

What if we attempted to restrict ourselves only to open source design assets. Using only faces from the League of Movable Type and others like it, and using iconography from FontAwesome or the Noun Project?

@terracomma so far we are. We are using Adobe's open source typeface - Source Sans Pro, and cc0 images from Flickr's commons and such.

The important thing is using correctly licensed assets, wherever they come from. It's up to the contributors accepting the pull request to verify.

As far as style guides go: contributors can use any tool they think is best for the design process. I hesitate to prescribe any one workflow as it can increase the barrier to entry.

I'm not proposing anything so restrictive that it would dictate the tools or process of the design. I'm just thinking of this in terms of tag-level styling for the top level pages. Nothing that would affect custom designs for posts.
