The new design of the #NixOS website https://nixos.org/ is online! It is made by a professional designer and implemented by the NixOS marketing team. The landingpage is ready, the other pages will be redesigned in the next days.

@davidak ‘Professional’ as in ‘taking money for work’ not as in ‘with a track record of quality design’?
That landing page looks like a generic template with inconsistent adjustments.
@mastoabed it is a freelance designer and we payed for it. i don't know the quality of previous works.
it is a new design and implemented from ground up by us.
which inconsistencies do you mean specifically?
@davidak for example the most jarring inconsistency is using six styles of typefaces on one page which conveys mess/clutter.
If that was created by a professional then I assume there must be a damn good reason for it besides ‘I think that looks cool’.
@davidak it looks quite good even without JS enabled!
