View Full Version : Rhythmbox Design - Vote Now!

September 8th, 2008, 11:11 AM
After a meeting in #rhythmbox last night there was a good amount of changes made to the design for the new Rhythmbox website. After coming up with a variety of slightly different design layouts I'd like the Ubuntu communities opinion on what they prefer.

Things that have/can change:

Position of the feature navigation i.e. Overview, Devices etc.
Size and alignment of the RSS/Last.fm tab icons.
Colour of the top level navigation, feature navigation and feature description (where the screenshot it) background.

Please feel free to leave feedback on what you think needs changed.

The outcome of this poll will not determine the aesthetics of the site indefinitely but will greatly help in finding a design a lot would be happy with.

The original design is design 4.

What in particular do you think needs changed? How would you do it?

none of them
Have you seen the current design of the site? The above designs are much more better. I like all of the them, but mostly the fourth one, so I'll vote accordingly.

At last Rhythmbox will have a nice website.

yes, number four is the best imo.

i got scared for a second when i read the thread title. i thought they were planning to take siplicity off rhythmbox's GUI.

Too messy I am sorry, why are there 2 navigation bars?

I voted for number 4, but I do like aspects of number 2.
The only part I like about number 2 is the lighter colour scheme.

The parts I like about number 4:
The big panel thing is at the bottom
The RSS feed icon is better placed and looks nicer
The nice menu shading at the top.

Design 4 gets my vote :D I think it's brilliant :D

There isn't. The navigation below the screenshot is purely for the homepage so it gives newcomers a brief overview as to what Rhythmbox is about. If you went to the download page then you would not see the 2nd navigation bar.

Aha, then number 4.

Have you seen the current design of the site?

When I originally posted, no, I had not seen the current website. Its not that bad actually. Simple and strait to the point. no unnecessary 'graphical fluff'

I voted for number four. I like the darker gradient look. Nice work! It'll be good when this is completed, Rhythmbox has needed a nice website design for a while.

I, Like many, Voted for Number 4.

Great Design, I hope Rhythmbox uses it ^_^

It looks like it'll probably be something like design 4 then. Thanks a lot for voting and your feedback. Appreciate it. Look out for the new site soon.
