Description

8 years ago
The projects page on the Labs website is the 4th most visited page (receiving about 12% of all PIs).  The page is currently a list of our projects with the respective logo.

Can we redesign this single page into something more appealing - ideally we have a short (1-2 sentences) explanation of what each individual project is about.

Looks good, and definitely much clearer.  Some feedback:
* Should there be a bar up top which has "Active" "Graduate" and "Inactive" projects up top for those that are viewing the website from a smaller screen and won't see that there are multiple sections to the page (I don't think this is a priority given the fact that we want to push the active projects the most) 
* As discussed, can we add icons/colors/etc. which indicate who the project is more relevant for.  For example, have an icon for user feedback for Weave versus Bespin which would have a developer icon.  
* Did you arrange the projects in a particular order for a reason or are they just random now?  I guess we could rotate them?  
* Is this scalable if we have 20 projects?  Or should we worry about that when it happens? 

Thanks

Mayumi,the project page is up on staging now and in need of one-liners for each of the projects.  We're looking at pushing these changes live (without the color coded dots) on Thursday, April 15th.  Is that enough time?

Not a problem, I'll work on it today and tomorrow.  Where should I submit the lines?  I'm assuming I can change them after THursday too in case one of them is totally off.

Emailing them to me should be fine, and anything that needs editing beyond that, just add to the general website bug.

Thanks!

Perfect thanks.

Question: could we get one-liners for the Archived projects on the current Projects page? There are 5 at the bottom: http://mozillalabs.com/projects/

If we can't get this for today, I'll just leave the blurb area blank and we can fill it on next week.
