To begin, run with Bootstrap as it's familiar, in place and can be customized?
Bootstrap4 upgrade? Can we build a styled theme on "4", or is Hyrax waiting on something to upgrade?
Has Hyrax ever had design attention or work? Where did the green logo come from? Is there a color scheme? A Hyrax "font face"? Can we just use Samvera colors/fonts/styles (http://samvera.org/) to start if not?
Something relatively simple, like http://ux.mailchimp.com/patterns/ I think is a good place to start. Specifically the sections "Typography", "Form Elements", "Feedback", "Dialog".
We could set Bootstrap variables (ie. define a custom font face, buttons are squared instead of rounded, primary color is green, alert messages have a certain background color(s), etc.) which would generate our own "style guide".
Actions - Style Guide:
Start work on a simple document/web site, defining and presenting the above. Could this be a github repo?
Start a branch from Hyrax `master` which addresses:
How CSS is brought into the application
Set Bootstrap variables before compilation
Clean up current CSS. Remove unused styles. Consolidate and organize the SASS.
Actions - Pattern Library:
Start a Gitbub repository of common elements in Hyrax, and craft examples of their proper usage.
