Designing UI with Seven

Day:  Tuesday, 24. august 2010
Time:  14:45-15:45
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



Drupal 7 is just around the corner. Seven, the new admin theme for Drupal 7, is a departure from previous Drupal themes. Designed as a result of the D7UX work undertaken by Leisa Reichelt and Mark Boulton Design, the theme only goes part way to create a great admin experience.

Contributed modules, and how they build upon, change and interact Seven is what will make it a truly great admin experience. Seven is only as good as Contrib makes it.

This talk will explain the why Seven looks the way it does. It'll outline the design principles, the UI conventions and give you - the Drupal community - the design chops to make your module look fantastic for the people who use it.


Looking forward to this one,

Looking forward to this one, Mark. Voted for it and glad it made it on the initial schedule. I hope we're not breaking any of the UI design rules thus far with Drupal Commerce, but if so I'm sure you can straighten us out. : D

Yeah, this is much needed.

Yeah, this is much needed. Guess we will mess it up nonetheless :P
Looking forward. In the we probably will need to build out UI Guidelines to nail this down.
