Gathering Feedback of new Whonix Homepage Draft

We have been discussing a new Whonix homepage (old) and new Whonix download page (old) for a while now. The draft has been created by Ego and we are now be counseled by ura design, Elio Qoshi (@elioqoshi) (who has recently refined Whonix logo).

Please keep your feedback specific to the new Whonix homepage.

(We agreed to finish the visual changes before the text gets improved.)

Other than that, we are also considering to replace mediawiki.

Patrick started developing Whonix, the Anonymous Operating System in 2012, when quickly others joined efforts. He collected experiences working pseudonymous on Whonix for two years, enjoys collaboratively working on privacy preserving software.

  1. First of all good job. Nice, clean layout. I have a few suggestions:

    Aesthetics:

    • A very slight enlargement of the Whonix logo.

    • I feel the light blue backdrop of the top banner is a bit over used by software sites in general see: https://syncthing.net/. Can you please try a mock-up with a light green gradient? The download button is good as it is.

    • The light brown bottom banner in the bottom can benefit from changing to a shade of green matching the top banner - solid fill not gradient.

    • The icon for "isolation" can look like a vault door.

    • The compatibility icon can have a miniature Debian logo on it cut out like stencil on the puzzle piece.

    Wording:

    • "Keep your anonymity with Whonix" can be better read "Protect your privacy with Whonix"

    • Avoid the word free because its ambiguous ->
      "A libre software and open network..."

    Good day,

    Do you mean larger in regards to what is currently on http://egobits1.github.io/ or what you may see in @elioqoshi's suggestion?

    Sure, in general we can and should play arround a bit with the color squeme employed and then decide on a final draft.

    Sure, like I've said before, testing a bit until we find a sweet spot is probably a good approach.

    Like @Patrick said, the wording will be improved once a visual base has been created.

    Have a nice day,

    Ego

  3. Yes the one in Elio's suggestion.

    Like @Patrick said, the wording will be improved once a visual base has been created.

    OK :slight_smile:

    Again I think you guys did a phenomenal job improving it over the status quo. These are just the small improvements that come to mind.

  4. Thanks for the feedback @HulaHoop ! I will check with Ego to finalize this
