Redesigning the Acquia Home page
by Jeff Noyes
In an attempt to respond to you - our most valued customer - we're revising our home page. In our current state, we've heard you say through our usability sessions "the page has too much text," and we've seen you have trouble finding important links like "Download Acquia Drupal." In addition, we think we can do better at making our value proposition more clear.
Our home page is so important to us. Through it, you can download Drupal bundled with several highly rated/used modules. We've tried to help eliminate the burden for new users to figure out which modules to start with. The home page is also the gateway to the Acquia Network were you can receive Drupal technical support, usage statistics, and visibility into the health of your Drupal sites.
We have high hopes for the redesign of this page (shown below). I'm interested in knowing if this design appeals to you and why. What is our value proposition? Are we being clear?
