In June 2021, @beafialho in collaboration with @pablohoney floated the idea of giving WordPress News a brand new look. Today, these concepts turn out to be a actuality—we’re excited to share that redesign of WordPress News is dwell!
The new design leans on the aesthetics of jazz, intrinsically related to WordPress and which in the end interprets its uniqueness, historic significance and future potential. Among different enhancements, the brand new design leaves more room for content material and contains new typefaces for higher readability. It additionally makes use of a coloration palette meant to mirror the evolving Gutenberg language.
The revamp of the WordPress News web page contains the header and footer of the web page. We additionally shipped these two world parts to all pages of WordPress.org. However, there’s extra work to do throughout the header to enhance the knowledge structure. This new design is simply the primary, small step to modernize and enhance the positioning iteratively. Any additional dialogue on future redesigns will happen within the #design channel on Slack.
