Hello Dear F-Droiders,
I am interested in updating the main landing page of the F-Droid website to make it more engaging for new users. I want potential users to be excited about FOSS the moment that the site appears on the screen.
If the user experience is lifted by my work I would aim to do further UX work on the F-Droid app itself and possibly also for specific apps.
Before I do any design work I want to ask the team, what would you like to see on the landing page that might not be there? What do you like about the current landing page? What do you dislike?
I like the idea of using SVG’s for images but they don’t seem to work on all browsers. I notice that the F-Droid logo is supposed to use a slab-serif font but doesn’t. I feel like the landing page isn’t making a strong visual impact above-the-fold, and isn’t giving me an essense of the abundance of exciting projects in the FOSS ecosystem. I think the landing page is suffering with a somewhat outdated layout and too much white.
Please tag anyone who you know would be interested in this area of web design and UX.
I would not ask for payment as FOSS is a passion of mine. If you do like the design you are welcome to donate a bit to help me along.
