Are there any discussions going on about the UI, fonts, icons .. of this website?

UPDATE: If I came up with some concept, how do I show to the community for approval? Who approves the design?

  • you would show it to the community by posting it as an answer to this question

This seems to be it.

However, it is still very early in the beta and I don't forsee this becoming an issue yet, but it is never too early to start.

Without any visual aids to help me. I was thinking of something along the lines of film reels in the background, movie canisters for the badges/background for [answered] questions, with a film noir color style (or even vibrant as with the early color days). Ill try to work up a bit of a draft (I'ma crappy artist) in the next few days/weeks.

EDIT: The process seems to be initially done by SE's graphic designer with the site's community putting in input for the design for a few revisions.

  • Please read this blog post: The 7 Essential Meta Questions of Every Beta. It's not too early to be having this discussion. It all a part of taking ownership of your site and not just waiting around until someone else gets to it. Commented Jan 19, 2012 at 18:23
  • Or what about clapperboards instead of reel canisters?

It looks like a recipe ingredient suggestion to me ;)

Anyways i think the logo of our site should be a clapperboards, which goes very well with both of our expects Movies and TV. Other suggestion should be like :-

  • Oscar as badges.
  • Not too dark background, something like academia.
  • Open movie reel at the bottom.
  • TV on the header part will complement our name
  • Subtle color scheme.
