Comment (by fcoveram):

 Hi all. Based on @critterverse points, I started working on different
 ideas for the header artwork to define the page style. Here are the two
 ones I like most.

 == Version 1

 [[Image(ticket:55434:About 6.0 - v1.jpg)]]

 This one has the 6.0 text as overlapped figures to reference the jazzy
 styles found in album covers without adding more decorative elements, and
 the font is based on the News redesign (EB Garamond). I like how bold and
 straightforward is and the decorative components like the 6’s top area and
 the single dot between the numbers.

 == Version 2

 [[Image(ticket:55434:About 6.0 - v2.jpg)]]

 In this case, I blended two styles. I used the brush stroke from News
 redesign to separate white and blue areas, and I took the 6.0 from the
 grid appearance of the demo video (2:45 sec). The masked rectangle in the
 bottom-right area is an interface reference to give more context to the
 header area.

 == Feedback

 Please let me know which direction you like more and the possible tweaks
 you envision.
