During blender 25 development I have seen some mockups or UI ideas by different blender users. Some of them was Ecletiel’s nice videos and tb1alexc. But William proposal/guidelines has always been the main UI design accepted by the developers.
In blender conference will be presented some more ideas for the interface.
We are accepting papers on a wide range of Blender development related topics, including: - proposals for roadmaps, future Blender design or UI concepts
I don’t know if blender developers want to change the actual mockup. Perhaps one blender fan do some mockup and he has wasted his time. I think that the best way to promote the design of new mockups could be with a contest/challenge. The prize could be simbolic, for example one item of the blender Shop (for example Venom DVD). The prize it is not important, what it is important is the oportunity that blender users participate more in the design. I insist, I don’t know if blender developers really want to change the actual mockup. But if they want to see new mockups I think that the best way will be with a contest. The selection of the UI design in that way will be open. Blender users could see the proposals, and vote. The winners design will be chosen by all the community and not only by one person. I think this is the philosophy of the open software.
What do blender users think?
