Update: Had a meeting with Len the designer (who is back in town). We reviewed 3 major items (homepage content, homepage layout/look+feel, and new logo) which are described in detail below.

HOME PAGE LAYOUT & LOOK AND FEEL
- The recent snapshots of the new navigation bar look good to Len.
- The footer should be expanded to have "sitemap" style links for important links. Microsoft's site is one such example.
- The carosel slides should be more "ad" like... not literal ads, but short one sentence callouts (picture of doctors office holding an ipad with Robert's latest OpenEMR theme shown, notable features, donation request, etc). If there is more information to show, a "read more..." button/link should be appended.
- 3 point callouts (non profit backing, notable users, certifications)
- Rows of divs that highlight features, how to contribute, etc
- Footer with sitemap
- Rows of divs that highlight features can have fancy stock photo backdrops or just colors that work well with each other and the logo colors.
- Rows of divs should be the about the same height
- "Help" section for users should be present in footer sitemap
- Can strategically break up the footer sitemap to highlight more important links with a different shade/color background
- 3 point callouts have more margin when on mobile to make them look different than the "rows of divs" below.
Len is working on mockups while Matthew works out where the content should go. Matthew is to think about stock photo selection.
Len has reviewed the logo thread and has identified the logo Robert made a couple of years ago to be the best one. He is currently playing around with the fonts and the colors. He wishes to incorporate some of the colors and spirit of the previous logo into the new logo.
