Recently, I've been contemplating a redesign of the message boxes used on the wiki, particularly due to the fact that some templates, for example the recently-added Guidance boxes look out of place when comparing it to the AVID design influences (such as the Credits button). So since last week, I got to work, and I've come up with something.
In my proposed redesign, I removed the outline, and widened the left bar. This design's main goal is to differentiate itself from Wikipedia-style message boxes, and add a modern, flat feel to it. The icon that will appear next to the text, will typically be in minimal style, and colored black. The text will also be streamlined, with the head text being smaller. My design takes a lot of influences from Windows 11's "Mica" visual design, while still staying consistent to the new AVID design influences.
There are four possible color schemes of this new design: Critical warning - White bar + red background (Inverted) Warning - Red bar Content - Yellow bar Notice - Blue bar
Mascots will be allowed for use as images in the boxes, however, prefer not to be 3D renders. I will allow as much 2D interpretation of them as possible.

Support, these look really good and fit much better with the rest of the site. Also wanted to note that a design tweak has been made since this vote was opened. Specifically, a drop shadow has now been added to prevent the boxes from blending into the background as in the above images. You can see this in action on the test template.
