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.

Design new Fedora Badges with the style guide

This week, the Fedora Badges team published a full walk-through of how to design new Fedora Badges on the Fedora Docs site. The walk-through is the best reference to use when designing new badges. It includes the following:

Earn Fedora Badges designing Badges!

Fedora Badges is a perfect place to start if you want to help out the Fedora Design Team. “I’m not a designer!” “I can’t draw!” “I’ve never opened Inkscape” – you might say. And that is totally fine! Everybody can help out, and none of those reasons will stop you from designing your first badge (and getting badges for designing badges).

Finding a Badges ticket

There are quite a few badges tickets. One might have difficulty looking for one that’s open, one that’s possible to implement, or one with a concept. So we decided to put together a list of relatively easy badges designs that are up for grabs. This post will go out about once a month and provide you with such list of badge tickets carefully selected by us!

First of all let’s look at the process of creating a badge. If you can, attend a badges workshop. If none are available, no problem! Here’s a step-by-step guide with tips. You can also ask questions on IRC (#fedora-design) or at our bi-weekly meeting every other Wednesday at 7-8 AM EST on #fedora-meeting-1 on freenode.

These badges are still up for grabs! Try designing one of the following badges and we will help you through the process:

  • #432: “I’ve been there“, for visiting a Fedora booth at any event
    For this badge design, reuse this artwork (https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/the-panda-is-in) and add a panda in front! (https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/lets-have-a-party-fedora-25)
  • #333: “Oh, wait!“, for canceling a Koji build
    This artwork just needs a little tweaking, and it will be ready! Download the svg and make the suggested changes in the comments.
  • #150: “Testing Day participant“, for contributing to a Fedora QA test day
    This badge needs original artwork, but it will be a breeze! Create a drawing of a piece of paper, and put the letters A+, B, C, D etc in separate files to create an entire series.

Fedora 26 Supplementary Wallpapers: Vote now!

At the end of January, the submission phase for Fedora 26 Supplementary Wallpapers opened. Now, the submission phase is closed and the voting phase is now open. If you have a FAS account and meet the CLA+1 group requirement, you can cast your vote in Nuancier.

Wallpapers for Fedora 26

We have again around 100 submissions from more then 60 different contributors, from which we will choose 16 to get packaged as supplemental wallpapers for Fedora 26. The contributors who successfully submitted their wallpaper should all now have the badge.  In case your badge was not awarded, ping gnokii in #fedora-design on freenode.

As for past contests, a lot of the participants made their first contribution to Fedora. We will continue to improve Nuancier and the submission process for supplementary wallpapers. We will also try to improve the quality of submissions. We have already improved with limiting the amount of submissions. We have also had longer phases for submissions and the time for the voting is also longer than before.

Be sure to cast your vote before April 6th, 2017 to have a say in what wallpapers are included! By participating, you can also receive a limited edition badge too. Please note, this badge must be claimed manually from you during the voting process, it is not automatically awarded. It can be not awarded afterwards, as it is not visible who has voted.

What are Personas and why should you care?

The Modularity working group is looking to flesh out a set of personas to help focus the work being done by the team. Personas are fictional characters created to represent the different user types that might interact with a “product” in different ways. They are not market segments but should be thought of as user archetypes.

Personas can be useful in considering the goals, desires, and limitations of users to guide decisions about a product.  They should be based on user research and can include all types of information about that particular person.  Our personas include information related to behavior patterns, goals, skills, pain points, attitudes and daily activities.  If you want to learn more about personas and their use, I recommend your start here.

Benefits of personas

Some benefits a team can see with personas include:
