Feedback on https://hq.grin.ninja/white/
It looks awesome!
I like the simplicity and the large logo right on the front page. The copy is a little confusing though: under “Meet Grin” it says “what’s mimblewimble”. As someone new to the project I would be like, “wait… the logo is Grin, and the website is for Grin, what’s this mimblewimble stuff?”
Maybe change the “what’s mimblewimble” text to “how does it work?” or something else that’s simple and doesn’t introduce a new concept. Introducing one concept at a time keeps it friendly and approachable while also reducing the likelihood of confusion or errors. I’d recommend keeping the focus on Grin: the project is Grin and this is the page for Grin, but then explaining the mimblewimble details further down the page or in the high level technical explanation.
The clear menu bar at the top of the page is annoying because text from the menu bar clashes with text on the page as you scroll down. Maybe make it solid?
The Community Initiatives section feels cramped. I’d recommend centering them and introducing 1 at a time, or just featuring the latest most important thing. Attention is scarce.
Also, it’s weird that the font size varies from section to section. Maybe pick one size that works (I like the size in the Community Initiatives) section and use that throughout. Maintains consistency and helps the reader focus on the content. Also reduces cognitive friction.
Oh! and a FAQ page would be AWESOME!
Most people don’t get how Grin works, esp the no addresses part. There’s also a lot of vague or incorrect information going about on the various VC and Blockchain newsletters about how the crypto works. It would be nice to address that clearly to help reduce the noise/signal ratio in the space.
Otherwise this is awesome and I love it
- It allows someone to get a quick overview of what’s going on.
- It’s friendly and approachable.
- And there’s clear links to engage with whatever you care about like checking out the code, building a node, or learning about the tech.
