[wp-design] A few words on Joen's v8

Hey everyone,

This is the last week of my busy-period, so I'll soon be back in  
black :)

Here are a few notes on Joen's latest 'sketch':

* While not entirely related to Joen's sketch, I don't really like  
the new WordPress logo, if indeed the one Matt showed us a little  
while back will be the final one. I am much more into something along  
the lines of the hearts or something equally iconic.

* One the whole 'Aqua', I can get used to it. But we need to  
implement it with great care, so as to not look like an Apple.com  

* I'd love to see some bolder colors taken into use :)

* Shouldn't the 'View Site' link be on the name of the blog?

* The submenu could be mildly confusing. It's not immediately obvious  
which of the two links is the active one.

*  I would like to see the 'Preview' section moved up over the  
'Advanced' section, especially if the plan is for it to be live.

* I love the fact that the excerpt area has a little more space than  
it does in the current version :)

* The password and post slug, should IMO be moved under the categories.

Now we just need to get it implemented :)

- Mike
