Hi Max,
The KDE Visual Design Group is working with the Plasma team to revamp
most of the system settings modules. This is the workboard of the
initiative:
https://phabricator.kde.org/project/view/254/

I suggest adding one for fonts (as I don't see one just yet) and add
"abetts" to it, who is the designer who has been leading the
initiative, to discuss what it will look like.

Does that make sense?

Aleix
