Hi Nate,

reading the header of your mail you already sent a subscribe request to 
the Design list (design at global.libreoffice.org). Once you have replied 
to the automated confirmation you'll get all the mails sent to the list 
and you're able to post your mails there without the need for moderation.

Would you mind to send your introduction to this list as well?

Welcome to the design team!

If you want to have a look at the areas we're working on at the moment, 
please have a look at our wiki area [1] (especially the Whiteboard 
section [2]) and the mailing list archive [3] (here probably the 
subjects of the last weeks' postings are enough).

That's great! I'm looking forward to reading your comments!

This task fits very well with the action items discussed on the design 

Even if we have not finished our work in providing an easy access and a 
well organized repository for the topics we work on, it would be great 
to have you on board.

design at global.libreoffice.org is about visual design and user 
experience/interaction design.

accessibility at global.libreoffice.org is dedicated to accessibility 
topics. As these topics are tightly related to UI design, there are 
overlapping interests in this area.

libreoffice-ux-advise at lists.freedesktop.org is meant to serve as a low 
noise interface between developers and UX / UI people. This list is very 
new, but developers working on patches with UI modifications should be 
able to get UX advise here on the list.

I hope this clarifies a bit...

Best regards and welcome again
