Attention Citizens of The Duck:
Years ago the Duck community showed interest in a new design from its current soft yellow-bright yellow-turquoise-lime green-dark green-cyan color scheme and site layout. Mobile device technology has grown exponentially since the last redesign, which is the reason it is the most imperative decision to evolve as well to improve the end-user experience.
Improvements have been on their way, and the most recent profits from the Drunk Duck Anthology will be used to help better the site. Several of the previous site improvements have been behind-the-scenes and code-based, more focused on fixing minor bugs. This next phase is going to be most apparent because it will be a facelift for the front page of the site.
Here are the preview details:
Alexey, our programmer, has been able to start work on the DD redesign.
For site transparency, here are two conceptual designs for the future site layout, a mobile and a desktop.
Layout #1: Mobile

Layout #2: Desktop

“Big changes coming to the look of DD soon, finally! Alexey has some stuff ready to go and he's ready to start work. I'll post info about it soon and try and disseminate it to the community so they know what's happening…
I think I'll have to make a newspost and re purpose the unused ads, I'll even have to delve into the murkiness of the discord maybe o_o
People really will need to know about this.
Alexey has started to implement Emma's designs from a couple of years ago. It doesn't change site functionality really (apart from usability via changed placemet of elements) but it updates the look of the site a lot!”
Soak it all in and check out the previews of the layouts and please share any thoughts and opinions below in the comments.
