  • ...would be to get a professional designer to create a real logo and a site template, imo this is long overdue.
    And by professional designer i mean someone prominent, like Jon Hicks.
    • The logo we already have. The onion can be used really well and in different ways.

      It's the site template, done in a way that we people making up new websites can easily integrate, that we badly need.

      • A proposed redesign for, created by Andy Wardley the last time this discussion happened: []

        A few different people tried to contact pudge with no response, so plans/hopes to improve the looks of use.perl were abandoned.

        Trying to do something useful with the wave of enthusiasm for Perl websitey things, at Digital Craftsmen we built this: []
