A new Designers' Theme for Drupal 8
The main outcome of the Design Initiative is to add a new core theme to Drupal 8.
Establish a Clear Process
In Drupal 8 and beyond we want a clear process to facilitate the selection and process of adding new themes to Drupal core.
In Drupal 8 we will to choose the next theme based on the design, then code the selected design into the next core theme.
Develop a collaborative environment for designers
To facilitate the process we will build a new site geared towards the requirements for-filling both goals 1 and 2. Primarily this means developing a collaborative site where designers can post work, discuss and iterate designs based on community feedback and discussion.
