I am back with another request for feedback. I have been working on the Fedora Cloud front page for a while now and finally have a draft to show the community!
The current version is here on the team’s Gitlab development branch.
The ticket on the Website Design tracker is here.

I wanted to go with an air / space theme as I felt it went well with what Cloud was looking to portray.
The concept I ended up going for was the hot air balloon. It steers away from the space / rocket theme cloud providers usually display.
I rendered hot air balloons in Blender on a transparent background and added them to a cloud cut-out. The tutorial I followed for the balloons was in a cartoon style, but I am happy with how it came out.
Shown below is the initial draft within the CMS the Websites and Apps team are using to update the assets:
I used the orange feature colour as a placeholder. Looking at the Fedora Cloud logo, you can see it is grey:
I think using grey as the feature colour might not have a strong visual impact, so I went with the cooler tones in the Fedora palette to somewhat match. I went with purple and a hint of pink that suits the page / concept quite well.
Why Fedora Cloud?:
For this section, I used the documentation currently available and the information I got while interviewing stakeholders. Please let me know if there is anything I can improve on here.
Endorsed Partners of Fedora Cloud:
I chose Endorsed Partners as the stakeholders did not want to use Featured Providers. It is open to change as I am unsure what describes the relationship best. The logos are not equal sizes, but it is getting fixed soon! At the moment, I have AWS, Google Cloud and Vagrant. Please let me know if I have left any out!
Build by You:
This section appears across all the edition pages and reflects the relevant information / what was available on the docs page for the Fedora Cloud WG.
Feedback is welcome! Thank you for reading <3
