spins.fpo mockups

I just finished a full set of mockups for spins.fedoraproject.org.

General Spins Pages

There’s a set of mockups to provide general information about spins that include a directory of spins, general information about what spins are and why they are used, and instructions on how to download and use them.

Specific Spin Details Pages

There’s also a set of mockups intended to show details for individual spins. I’m hoping that spins maintainers feel free to add or remove tabs as necessary and add/remove content and they feel they need to in order to represent their spin:

    • I have to agree here, the first page require a bit too much vertical scrolling, it can use a more compact layout.

    • The blue looks nice to me. The page is indeed a bit too long, but I don’t see how it can be shorten. Anyway, good job!

  3. I like these mockups really much, great work!

    I kind of agree with Rahul. Maybe there is a bit too much light blue used.
