Hi Ton, hi Tom,


Some comments on the draft design/navigation/structure, for what it is


1.       I find the colours a bit dull, a bit more marine blue?

2.       I find it too much text, which will be the consequence of putting
the blog there

3.       I find the welcome to the EPSI site too prominent and too much text

4.       I find the top row rather dull

5.       We have lots of content, would it be possible to mark the # of docs
under the respective button or something similar?

6.       I like the fact that are pics, but would I would like more,
especially where it concerns events on PSI. Would it be possible to somehow
lure people to a spot where pics can be seen?

7.       I guess there will be drop down menus under the second row buttons?
If so, couldn't that be done in a more Apple way?

8.        Can you work with icons, like flags for news on countries (+EU for
EC news)?

9.       The same applies to type of news: e.g. legal - scales, technical -
a lamp, economic - stack of money, open data - nerd, research - Einstein,
hot news - pepper etc. Would it be possible to list news items in a kind of
nu.nl way?

10.   I would also like a European map that will mouse sensitive and will
magnify, allowing to click on countries, so you get the news items, reports,
cases in there


Also, I was wondering whether there will be subpages and how they will look
like. In other words, is there an overall structure already?


I hope this is of some help.


Reg. M.

Hi all,


Heinze Havinga is working on designing the new appearance of the


I've discussed with him about our goals (more people/community, maintain
high content level, cater to various groups),  that Tom and I thought the
whitehouse.gov wireframe of the site is a good mix of new and traditional
ways of navigating and embedding web2.0 features, that the logo needs to
stay the same, and for those using the site now the new site should be


Attached is a first sketch as a result of that conversation.

Feedback is welcomed, so we can use that to go into a second iteration.
