Like Chris, I love the demographically agnostic, yet incredibly
drawings. I also love the overall crisp and modern feel to the whole
site including the proposed new logos.
+1, I really like the design, I find it well done and welcoming except
I also read on IRC that someone said the drawings were childish.
Some one corrected me. What I mean is that it doesn't look **serious**
in the sens that the drawings would fit way better a tutorial about
Guile that targets
children. And I think, it's better to save those drawings that and come
illustrations/photos that are more explicit about each topic.
There should be a better place between "corporate/megacorp", "chilren
and "startup" designs. Maybe if the toons had a gnu/friendly
face instead of human faces it will look less "primary school". Like I
the drawing, I'm wondering whether it's for the correct audience.
Some comments on other webites:
- python.org, djangoproject.com, and rust-lang.org look to too
- ruby-lang is simple and impersonnal but I think the logo makes it work
- kivy.org is really well made
- http://elm-lang.org/ nice, not too dull
Really the design is really well made, no problem with that, I just want
to be sure
that we won't disappoint the main audience and attract a lot of newsbies
which i think
we are not ready for.
If I can vote, I will +0.
I other comments, I think that:
- The header menu should use the same ordering as the guix header menu
- It should have bulllet points (!) something like
This kind of standard a lot of people do that in their README
- It should have a code snippet
Last but not least, the website is focusing on explaining that Guile is
**extension** language. I don't use it as such and neither do many
"it a general programming language with appealing embedding features".
Most people looking for language look for a language to program their
website, make REST apis, build games, script their system and some to
software to provide multiple extension language with the same API. This
is a really
massive feature of Guile and a deserve a full block, but other aspects
of the Guile must
appear in the page. I think it is bad rep to call it "script" language.
I think it's written nowhere that it's a scheme language following srfi
and RNRS specifications.
Honestly it was an another argument for me to start using Guile, instead
I understand. But I hope that the "Applications using guile" section
will erase any wrong impressions that some people may get after seeing
This design IMO target better young people, I am not sure that's the
Guile wants to show at first glance.
Hope this helps,
P. S.: Nala Ginrut, I put your two cents in my pocket, thanks :)

As part of the Guile project I imagine, I'd like to propose these
modifications for the logo and the website.
Website mockup (some rough sketches here)
My intention with this proposal is, hopefully, to modernize the image
the project a bit and make it more attractive to potential users.
