I work primarily in Ruby on Rails. I was putting together my own site and I wasn't really satisfied with existing blog platforms for Rails, so I decided to make my own Rails engine for blogging. Also, I thought it would be a good exercise to get some open source code out in the wild. I call it Parlez. "Parlez" means "Speak!" in French. I have taken a shot at designing the admin UI using colour combinations from Kuler and ColorLovers, but, man, I'm not visually inclined. I've srsly gone over board on the text drop shadows (CSS3, I'm sorry!)... As you can see, there are still a couple of bugs (the double Body label, for example), but this screenshot has most of the UI elements and demonstrates the look and feel I currently have. I would like to partner with a friendly designer(s) to put together a design for an admin UI that is beautiful, memorable, confident, and invites the user to interact with it. I am in NO way tied to the current design. In fact, I would love to collaborate with someone who is opinionated about how a good user interface should work/look and wants to make it happen. So... help me out!
