Sonny,

I like the new design - from the end user perspective - its very intuitive and straightforward.
+1 for usability

I also like the concept of what you and Matt mentioned in past - that is trying to use the
existing design of CS (especially newer 4.1/4.2) on current apache site. 

Last but not least, if we do go with current design, do you think we can pick a sexier background
of CS other than alerts :)? For a newbie who does not know what CS does, seeing alerts makes
it seem like CS has lots of trouble.

Thanks
ilya

Sonny,

I really like the concept. I like you integrated the dashboard in and made me thing about
how that by maybe reusing some of the icon with the sections as well it could really help
tie the project site into the product. 

That started making me wonder if the dashboard framework would actually work for making a
consistent portal front page as well. Each section would have it's own area and as people
used the website they would also be learning how to use the product. Might be a little far
fetched but wanted to throw it out there. 

Thank you,
Matt

marketing CloudStack. I mentioned in that thread that I was playing around with the idea of
a redesign for the Apache CloudStack site. I did create a mockup and you can see the design
at the link below. I feel that this design is clean and will help new people onboarding with
CloudStack feel comfortable in exploring the site and learning more about CloudStack. Also
the site is more "marketing" friendly and helps in providing a good first impression for those
coming to learn about CloudStack for the first time.

development. This could be part of an initiative to redesign a few other areas of CloudStack
such as the documentation, documentation portal, social media, and maybe the wiki to provide
a more consistent experience.
