So taking into consideration most of the suggestions I had obtained during the recent Design FAD at Red Hat, the initial slides of desktop version are also ready. Maybe these are enough to start off with a basic CSS template which we can build upon iteratively while we work on more mockups for other major pages in parallel. Here is the updated mockup:
Just a reminder that the color palette used here is not standard and its indicative. The standard Fedora color palette will be used in the code. The next mockups to be done are for the views for individual question pages, contributor/people page, the ‘ask question’ page and maybe the registration page if required. Most of the other stuff I think would be best done directly in the code. I was anticipating a bigger challenge in streamlining the design but personally I think, as Askbot apes the StackOverflow and similar Q&A websites’ UX to a large extent, the users already are familiar with flow of AskFedora. In any case, later on we can have something like this : http://askubuntu.com/tour – an Ask Fedora Tour page for beginners/new users so that the initial user-inertia reduces.
Contributions and comments welcome.

Thanks. Will bother you from time to time if I need help 🙂
Looks nice. Any mock ups for question/answer page. What did you use to create these mockups?
As I mentioned in the post, they will be done shortly. I used only Inkscape to do the mockups. Thanks for the feedback!
I’ve used one of your photos and left a courtesy on the photo desc.
Let’s get to working on this soon 🙂
The design looks uncluttered and appealing than the current design of Ask Fedora. I’m very much interested in UX/UI related stuff and was inspired by the designs here.
I was more than happy to hear about this UX/UI related project on GSoC 2015 and I am looking forward to contribute towards the development of this through GSoC.
