    $\begingroup$ You've managed that - we now have an angst ridden designer, hugging himself in a dark corner. But the medics are on their way, @Rover $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It's astonishing to see both Bio and Chem graduate in quick succession. Like the Bio theme more, though. $\endgroup$ May 21, 2015 at 9:02

    $\begingroup$ Also the featured (bounty) label still is in bright blue, this is inconsistent with the current theme. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ On SE network profile pages, the bio.SE logo is still the beta version :) EDIT: actually, I think it's just generally across stackexchange.com and thus redundant with WYSIWYG's earlier comment $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I think the design could be still improved.

We could

  1. We could make the illustration more colorful. Such as instead only one color; we could choose some other colors in combinations.

Here are some suggestions from web-colors list

$$\begin{array}{c|c|c|c|c}\hline \textbf{Reds} & \textbf{Yellows} & \textbf{greens}& \textbf{blues}& \textbf{purples}\\\hline \bbox[red]{\textbf{RED}} & \bbox[Yellow]{\textbf{YELLOW}} & \bbox[limeGreen]{\textbf{LIME-GREEN}}& \bbox[aqua]{\textbf{AQUA}}& \bbox[Fuchsia]{\textbf{FUCHSIA}}\\\hline \bbox[OrangeRed]{\textbf{ORANGE-RED}} & \bbox[Gold]{\textbf{GOLD}} & \bbox[yellowgreen]{\textbf{YELLOW-GREEN}}& \bbox[DarkTurquoise]{\textbf{DARK-TURQUOISE}}& \bbox[DeepPink] {\textbf{DEEP-PINK}}\\\hline \bbox[Tomato]{\textbf{TOMATO}} & \bbox[Goldenrod]{\textbf{GOLDENROD}} & \bbox[OliveDrab]{\textbf{OLIVE-DRAB}}& \bbox[LightSeaGreen]{\textbf{LIHGHT-SEA-GREEN}}& \bbox[MediumVioletRed]{\textbf{MEDIUM-VIOLET-RED}}\\\hline \bbox[Coral]{\textbf{CORAL}} & \bbox[SandyBrown]{\textbf{SANDY-BROWN}} & \bbox[DarkOliveGreen]{\textbf{DARK-OLIVE-GREEN}}& \bbox[DeepSkyBlue]{\textbf{DEEP-SKY-BLUE}}& \bbox[Purple]{\textbf{PURPLE}}\\\hline \bbox[Salmon]{\textbf{SALMON}} & \bbox[Peru]{\textbf{PERU}} & \bbox[Olive]{\textbf{OLIVE}}& \bbox[DodgerBlue]{\textbf{DODGER-BLUE}}& \bbox[DarkViolet]{\textbf{DARK-VIOLET}}\\\hline \bbox[FireBrick]{\textbf{FIREBRICK}} & \bbox[Orange]{\textbf{ORANGE}} & \bbox[ForestGreen]{\textbf{FOREST-GREEN}}& \bbox[CornflowerBlue]{\textbf{CORNFLOWER-BLUE}}& \bbox[Indigo]{\textbf{INDIGO}}\\\hline \bbox[DarkRed]{\textbf{DARK-RED}} & \bbox[DarkOrange]{\textbf{DARK-ORANGE}} & \bbox[Green]{\textbf{GREEN}}& \bbox[SteelBlue]{\textbf{STEELBLUE}}& \bbox[Pink]{\textbf{PINK}}\\\hline \bbox[IndianRed]{\textbf{INDIAN-RED}} & \bbox[Moccasin]{\textbf{MOCCASIN}} & \bbox[DarkGreen]{\textbf{DARK-GREEN}}& \bbox[MidnightBlue]{\textbf{MIDNIGHT-BLUE}}& \bbox[RosyBrown]{\textbf{ROSY-BROWN}}\\\hline \end{array}$$

(The array doesn't indicate any combination, is used to only save the space.)

Here I've shown some samples.

Sample-1: Bright background; only lines colored

Sample-1: Bright background, lines colored

Sample-2: Brighter background; shapes fill-coloured

Bright background, shape fill-coloured

Sample-3: Dark background, Fill-coloured, lines black, bright sharpening.
enter image description here

Sample-4: Dark background, fill-coloured, lines white. White lines

  1. At the side-space (at left and right side of the text area); we could add some light watermarks.

For this purpose; I would prefer something structural to 'see'; for example the image below:

animals (Sample originally inspired from an answer by user@WYSIWYG in the question site-design feedback, original photo url)

But not only some arthropods; structures from other animals, plants , fungi , histologic section, TEM/ SEM electron micrograph and chemical-structures too, could be included.
