Diaspora Foundation Site Proposal
Some time ago I've made a proposal (https://www.loomio.org/d/KZJhVLgM?page=1
) about redesigning diaspora's identity (to some extent, not the logo), and build a better DiasporaFoundation site based on that.
Well, I've presented some mockups, and now I've forked the site and made a new version of the homepage.
First we could port the current page to the new design, and then possibly add some features as having a Pod map right on the foundation page. And clarifying the joining process, maybe hosting a video, etc.
So, if I have green light from the people involved, the porting could be achieved in no time, this is actually running code already.
I'm reposting a comment on the other proposal below:
I forked the code and made a home page sample, no internal sections, but at least you can choose language.
I’ve been working on developing a unique style for it, with a unique palette, the Diaspora’s exclusive “not-so-flat” buttons ( :P ) , and Titillium as font.
The choice for Titillium is because is a free font with lots of weight options. From Campi Visivi, the Fine Arts Academy of Urbino, Italy.
Another option was Open Sans, many widths, but it’s used in Google+ and all over Android apps, same with PT Sans.
Titillium is a light, modern sans serif font, with more personality than the classic Helvetica clones.
You can change the language on the top bar.
This is intended to be responsive, also.
Please feel free to tell me what you think.

Good design to me. It will give to official website a touch of youthness.
