On behalf of the Fedora Design Team, I am excited to invite the Fedora community to the Creative Freedom Summit January 17-19th, 2023. This free virtual event focuses on promoting open source creative tools, features, and benefits of use. The Summit is open to anyone interested in learning more about open source tools, how and why to use them, as well as connecting with other creatives working in the open source ecosystem.
To attend the event, join the Creative Freedom Summit Element chat. The Element chat is where you can watch the live stream of the sessions, connect with others, and get updates about the event. The event will also be streamed live to the Creative Freedom Summit LinuxRocks Peertube Channel.Continue reading
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:
Hey, I’m Smera. I’m one of the Outreachy interns this year, working on creating new designs for the Fedora Project. I work with Marie Nordin (FCAIC) and the Fedora Design team. I started on the 19th of May and this is what I have been up to!Continue reading
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:
Long time we did not had any meetup at Pune, Maharashtra, India, so we decided to get started again. Details about this meetup are available at Fedora Wiki page.
Planning for meetup started 1 month before. Initially Ompragash proposed to have meetup.com account for Fedora Pune to get more awareness. Later dropped this plan, since this is not only Fedora Pune level topic but applicable for all Fedora events.
Event started well in time.
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.
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.
This week, some Ambassadors, CommOps, and Design Team members collaborated on improving and redefining the guidelines for how to request artwork and other art assets. As the advocates and representatives of Fedora across the globe, the Ambassadors often need many tools and resources for demonstrating Fedora. Examples of this might be fliers, banners, tablecloths, stickers, badges, and more. Until recently, the process for requesting artwork assets was not well-defined and somewhat unclear. This can cause problems when Ambassadors need something designed for an event. Sometimes it can draw out the request or end up in an accident, such as purple DVD media covers!
To help more clearly communicate the most effective way for Ambassadors to request artwork, an official set of guidelines were written and proposed based on discussion with Design Team members. The official guide walks through all the steps necessary to help make sure requests receive quick responses and all the information needed is available. This not only helps the Design Team understand a request, but it also benefits the Ambassadors by helping getting a faster turnaround on a deliverable. An announcement about the new guide appeared on the Ambassadors list.
For some time now, Fedora has discussed the idea of the Fedora Outreach Steering Committee (FOSCo), a body to coordinate all our outreach efforts. Now it’s time to make it happen!
On behalf of FAmSCo and the Fedora Council, we would like to invite the Fedora community to an all-hands.
So far, the following participants have confirmed attendance.
The fact that we already have a good team of volunteers should not stop you from attending. In fact, we would like to hear more voices from all stakeholders. The more, the better! To get an idea what FAmSCo has been working on so far, please have a look at the wiki page and current status.
None of this is set in stone yet, and we feel we need your input before we go any further. We are looking forward to your comments and to meet you next Monday!
