Note: Of course, this comes down to those that actually run and update the website (Gavin?).

I think we all can agree that the Bitcoin.org homepage could use some love.

In general, it could be prettier and at least sport the Bitcoin logo. But it also could be more descriptive of the Bitcoin project in a way that's more accessible to people that stumble upon Bitcoin after the intermittent media attention that it receives or some rogue "Donate Bitcoins" button that stimulates their curiosity.

I'm not a professional designer, but I can code any idea into well-formed html/css, and I'd do it all for free.

I believe in minimal designs that front-load only the information that can be quickly scanned and digested. Further reading and information (like Wiki explanations) can always be neatly linked to for those so inclined.

Mockups created at: https://gomockingbird.com. I can also create Photoshop mockups.

Idea 1

That looks really nice. I like the first one better.

Yeah, I like the first one better as well. I started making the second one first and it changed into the first image after a few more minutes of fiddling.

I'll make some more visually representative mockups with Photoshop.

Idea 2 seems to be more visually appealing, but thats just me.

For some reason I only saw the download links in #2 and I didn't see the "What is bitcoin" in #1. I would go with #2 for the video and download layout and then I would take the text format that is currently on bitcoin.org and replace that with the text in #2.

I like number 2. Can you add a poll to the thread ?

You don't need a poll. Just pick the good features from both mock-ups, after all they are anything but a final design where we have to chose either one.

What about swapping Download and "What is Bitcoin" in #1? So the order would be: What is bitcoin?, Download, Quickstart

Here's an idea.

(The default image for that video really needs to be changed.  Cheesy)

Looks good. Maybe we could set up a git repo to work on the redesign?

I like both of them.

And the half-done coloured one too.

The color version looks good. I'd prefer to have the download links at the top, though, now they just break the flow of the page.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

I would also like download links in vertical column, rather than horizontal bar.

Alphabetized the download list. Put Linux first.

Use my Trade Hill referral code: TH-R11519

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

Shameless display of my bitcoin address:

I prefer second (and second the motion for a poll).

Also, this gomockingbird tool looks great (first I've seen it).
