Hi Andreas,
Great to see you here on the list.
Indeed, we need more people, not only developers, but also designers and 
people who have experience with UI design.

Your background sounds promising.
The UI changes you did, were they actual Code changes or a mockup?
I have to say, I quite like the approach and the UI looks much more 
organized. Some more infos on how you did that would be great.

Anyway, if you want to help, you are very welcome. We have a lot of 
Interface todos: 

You can start by doing patches and tackle some of the todos listed above 
if you like. :)

Best regards,
