Proposed design for #338

merged 1 commit into from

Please consider this my entry for the Ruby Association design contest to re-design (

Highlights of this new design:

  • Look and feel that is dignified and restrained, conveying Ruby's established, leading position in the open source software world
  • New wider, more spacious layout and typography better suited to modern web browsing.
  • Uses web fonts for increased personality and pleasant reading.
  • Supports high resolution displays
  • Employs responsive CSS layout that adapts to a wide range of device viewports with special affordances for tablets and phones.
  • Tested and verified with modern desktop web browsers on Windows and OS X including Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  • Tested and verified with mobile web browsers including Mobile Safari, Chrome and stock Android on the following mobile platforms: iOS 7, iOS 6, Android 4.3, Android 2.3.6, and Windows Phone 7.5. Also specifically tested on Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 4, Google Nexus One, Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7, Apple iPad Mini, and Nokia Lumia 710.

This is a fully realized production-ready design that is completely implemented and works with all the existing content, features and languages. It is production-ready to the best of my personal ability, though it is possible there are cases and scenarios I've not accounted for. I'm happy to contribute additional design and compatibility work as-needed.

I hope that you enjoy this design as much as I've enjoyed making it. I use Ruby every day in my software design work and it's absolutely a joy to work with. I'm thrilled by the opportunity to contribute this design.

Attached are a few screenshots of the new design:
