Would you use this as your homepage?

The Design team have been working to revamp start.fedoraproject.org which is the default homepage in a fresh Fedora Linux installation. We are super excited to show you the progress we have made so far.

Thanks to the amazing feedback we got from you, we have further improved the first mock-up:

  • Moved a bunch of things around.
  • Reduced unused space.
  • Added a search engine field that follows the default search engine in your browser settings.

A revamp of our beloved Fedora characters

If you’ve been hanging around the Fedora Design team lately—or dropped by one of our recent Fedora Design Team Live Sessions —you may be aware of a very cool artwork project one of our interns has been working on. Lauryn Dake has done a revamp of the character designs for the entire cast of Fedora characters, including the Beefy Miracle, panda, and badges badger!

The idea here is our current character artwork is a bit dis-jointed. For example, the pandas in our badge system are drawn in a very different style than the badger, and the original Beefy Miracle artwork is in yet another older style. We want to give our characters all a fresher, more expressive look. Also, this allows them to hang together more cohesively under the same style / approach.

We wanted to share this ongoing project with you and get your feedback and ideas. How is your team using these characters? What poses for these characters would be helpful for you to have graphics of? What formats would you like some of the artwork in?

A sneak peek at Fedora Zine

So my Outreachy internship is winding to a close, as is the creation of the first-ever edition of our very own Fedora Zine!

It has been a crazy journey so far and I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this awesome project, especially getting to see and work with all of these great submissions from the community. I have learned so much; from how to balance my design visually, how to pair fonts and use other typographic effects, how to use guides for a perfectly aligned design and also that you should read your printing specs very, very carefully before getting to work on a project☺. A huge thank you goes to my mentor, Marie Nordin, who has been incredibly helpful in guiding me through this whole process!

Now is the time for me to give you all a sneak-peek at what we have been working on for the past two and a half months.

Join Us: Design Team Sessions Live!

Just before the Christmas holidays, you may have participated in one of three impromptu live design sessions / video chats I held. In the first session, a group of Fedorans did a critique on one of the Fedora 34 wallpaper mockups. In the second session, another group of us did a collaborative design session for a custom Fedora Discourse theme. In the last session, we did a live digital painting session.

This was part of an experiment to see if there would be enough interest and to generally test out the concept of holding a regular Fedora video chat meetup. Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that it started just as I was returning from maternity leave, the Fedora Design Team never resumed our regular IRC/Matrix text chat meetups, and I was looking to see if we could be a bit more creative (I mean design is a creative pursuit 🙂 ) in how we chose to sync up.

I think the experiment was a success, so we will be holding these in a less-haphazard way on a regular schedule, and calling them “Fedora Design Team Sessions Live.”
