Sink your Creative Teeth into Something
We need web designers who can help with the design challenges presented by new sections. We need UI designers who can help craft interfaces for new applications. We need usability designers who can streamline the look and function of existing pages, and conduct usability tests. On one hand, uniformity is important to create a site identity and to make navigation simple and easy. Everyone should be able to navigate simply on every page; do you have ideas how to improve the way we do it? On the other hand, some topics lend themselves to a more creative approach. You don't need to know anything about the internet, or programming to revamp the graphic design of a page so that it's form better complements it's function. You don't need to know anything about computer science to fix something that just looks ugly. If you have web design experience that's fantastic, but graphic designers are equally welcome to chime in and work with us. Help us make Earth Chronicle work beautifully!
We've also located the first public domain fonts, though they are primarily geared for extended Unicode ranges. We'd love to get a group of font designers to create a range of public domain fonts, and hopefully even write up best practices on designing fonts. If you're interested in designing or submitting public domain fonts, contact us!
