This is the community for people who are interested in working on improving Dreamwidth's design! While visual design, aka "how pretty it is", will be part of the job, we're also going to be working heavily on user experience and usability design, to improve the methods by which people interact with the site.

This isn't going to be done overnight; Dreamwidth (and LiveJournal before it) grew organically over time, with a number of different designers (and often no designers at all) and many of the taskflows disagree violently with each other, or are needlessly complex, or just could use a little love. But this is where we get a start.

There'll be two major (ongoing) projects for the design team:

1) Working to improve the usability and workflow of existing features, slowly over time;
2) Acting as resources for programmers working on implementing new features, to help them with the workflow and presentation of those features.

Stay tuned for more resources and plans!
