The new design of the website 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.

You can follow the progress here: discourse.nixos.org/t/new-nixo

@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’.

@mastoabed
It was done for marketing reasons, so 'I think it looks cool' is THE goal in itself.
And if you get a freelance designer whose job is probably to make 'generic corporate website' look cool, you get a cool 'generic corporate website'. Pretty much what you'd expect 🤷‍♂️
