We are planning to update the website look and content for the release of 16.04.

Theming

  • Base on the WP ubuntu-community authored by knome.

  • Use official colors and artwork (CoF and text logo)
  • Keep it simple and clear and with a look that seems relevant to Ubuntu Studio

Colors

The general look should be dark. We use our official colors, mainly blue, for the artwork.

  • Official Blue #009BF9 (main color, but also representing the audio workflow)
  • Official Orange #E27D15 (not written in stone yet, representing graphics)

  • Official Purple #574BBC (representing video)
  • Dark Grey (not defined yet, also a basis for a possible desktop theme)
  • Very light grey (not defined yet)

General Styling Guidelines:

  • Top Bar Background: blue
  • Top Bar Foreground: white
  • Content background: dark grey
  • Content foreground: very light grey
  • Content links: blue

Personas

note: the order of the personas aren't relevant

user A: long time ubuntustudio user The user already knows most ins and outs of ubuntu studio in at least one of the work flows (photography, audio, graphics, video, etc). The user is interested in tweaking their system and changing things. Would like to be able to quickly find necessary files, install, perhaps even help out other users. This user actually would be interested in helping with ubuntu development but they have never contributed to an open source software in any way,

user B: previous linux user. Film editor, is just switching to Ubuntu Studio for first time. The user is familiar with linux features but is not clear what type of software is available on linux. The user's goal is to produce professional quality videos with least hassle possible.

User C: first time linux user. Expert graphic designer coming from commercial OS and industry standard software. The user is looking for an alternative to industry standard software, and their OS and needs to be able to collaborate with other people. The user wants to use free software but not in the detriment of efficiency in producing professional quality content. They are interested in software that looks polished and cool.

User D: Expert musician with no interest to computers and twiddling about with the Operating System, who just want to record and distribute their music.

User E: Beginner musician who wants to learn ins and outs of recording music or illustrating or filmmaking along with learning how to use ubuntu studio. The user doesn't know much about the concept of open source but they needed a cheap option that gets the job done.

User F: Open source software user who wants to produce media. This person might equally be looking for a new distro as well as meta packages. Caveat: they only want to use free software and nothing else, and want to avoid anything proprietary including codecs.

Scenarios

== Use Cases

Pages

  • Front Page (This could be the Feature Tour)
  • Feature Tour
  • Download
  • Documentation (possible written docs, videos, and link to the help wiki)
  • News (possibly aggregated to social sites)
  • Community/Contribute
  • (Merchandise)
  • About

Content Draft

please add ideas * Home (see front page for details) ** basic introductory information ** news posts (?) * News * Discover ** Audio ** Graphics ** Video * Support ** basic troubleshooting ** how to get more help (forum, mailing list etc) * Contribute ** community information

==Front Page== brainstorming in progress.

==Support Page== TBD

Custom Pages

At least the front page and feature tour pages need to be custom. But, all pages can be, except the news page. So, we need a way to create custom pages in WP.

Custom pages may be individually themed. Specifically the feature tour page.

Things we want to be able to do in our custom pages:

  • Full width images
  • Custom backgrounds for different elements
