New Site Revamp – Design Ideas
So as a few of you know already, we’re in the process of revamping our site. We’ve got the new site IA completed but now we’re in the design stage.
Here’s a few quick compositions some of our community have put together. Feel free to reply with your likes / dislikes and hopefully we can take the good from each of them and put them into the final site design.

I think they each have something I like about them, but the one I like most is how @jchristopher wireframed the layout of information and menus. I think @tonyjansen has an updated version of his work somewhere, I’m sure he can post it when he has a moment. And @thinkfast came out of left field (way to show initiative by taking an hour or so to put your ideas down) with his, which has some cool color usage. All three of these guys have a TON of experience behind them and I personally think that we’re on the right track to having an awesome looking site to go along with our upcoming 2.0 release!
Recently @jchristopher and Kevin, his partner in crime over at irontoiron.com – have found themselves a quick extra few hours to spare which should be invaluable to us in our process as they provide some more visual ideas.
We appreciate everyone’s input so far on what they think the new site could look like, it’s all been great! Also, if you think you can do better than any of these, feel free to post your own ideas. In the end, we might have a design that’s a fusion between one or more of these, but your input goes a long way to helping Pods be the best it can be.
Remember, we’re a community and we’re driven by the time each of you spend on making Pods better. Thanks for your time so far, looking forward to seeing where the revamp ends up
