The User Experience team develops art, CSS, and other UI elements and is connected with the Dev team. Take a look around at what we are working on currently and what we'd like to start working on next, if you see anything you might be able to help with just contact style@soylentnews.org.

There's a lot of documentation on CSS work being done and you can find some notes on future UI Design here.

  • flesh out the store with more options
  • come up with SN memes or nerdy sayings for products
  • need a square logo or "SN" for square products (see example right)
    • working with prospectacle on a monogram-type idea for subtle more formalwear

Site Graphics and Icons

  • may need to add some new topics (work with Editor's Team)
