I occasionally search for "Judaism" across all SE chat sites, and I just discovered this comment from Jin Yang, SE's resident designer:
yeah i'm designing the music and judaism sites now
i know 0 about either one..
This is a bit of a surprise to me. I didn't realize that we were anywhere close enough to launch to justify starting on the design work, but I guess that Jin's getting the work into the pipeline early.
Jin / SE Staff: Could you please explain how this design process works, and what part the community will have in it?
Judaism.SE Community: Let's help Jin out! Please post ideas for concepts that could be included in the design: concepts, images, phrases, etc. Feel free to include anti-ideas like "Please don't make this look like the logo for the local Jewish retirement home!" Take a look at some of Jin's excellent designs on already-launched SE sites for some ideas about what differs between one site and another.
