[edit] About Us

The Fedora Design Team is Fedora's in-house design agency. We provide artwork, user experience, usability, and general design services to the Fedora project.

Our current team goals:

  • Template and Automate - Generate templates, standards, and automation where possible for more efficient and consistent artwork production.
  • Increased focus on UX/usability - Increase the amount of UX and usability work we provide to the Fedora project through both more efficient usage of current designer time and also better recruitment of UX/usability team members and better documentation of UX/usability tasks and processes.
  • FLOSS Creative Tool Education & Outreach - Continue to use the very same free and open source creative tools available in Fedora to design for Fedora, and increase and improve knowledge sharing with the general FLOSS community.
  • Clear Priorities - Strive to be more selective about our focus as a team and set clear priorities so the things that are most important to Fedora are done in a timely and organized manner.

[edit] Fedora Website Design

[edit] New GetFedora Website

The Design Team helped design and launch the new GetFedora website for Fedora 21 - the first release of Fedora.Next. It started as a whiteboard session with the Fedora Project Lead and led to a set of new Fedora.Next themed websites to help people understand the direction of Fedora releases and getting a copy of the right version as easily as possible.


[edit] New Fedora Labs Website

The Design Team provided a brand new design for the new Fedora Labs website that showcases targeted functional spins. These spins focus on specific groups of applications that a particular user would want to install e.g. design, robotics, science, etc. The team provided mockups and website design work.


[edit] Fedora Badge Creation

Fedora Badges is a fun website built to recognize contributors to the Fedora Project. The Fedora Design Team designs and create the badge icons visible on contributors' profiles. Examples:

[edit] Anaconda Re-do

Design Team members helped with the redesign of the installation/setup process of Fedora using the Anaconda software. Their contributions included mockups, storyboards/comics, and usability testing. Members to be involved as enhancements are made to the process and software. More details can be found at the dedicated wiki page.


[edit] Fedora Release Wallpaper

Each Fedora release receives a refreshing new default wallpaper. The Fedora Design team brainstorms ideas and iterates through various drafts until the final wallpaper design is delivered. Examples:

See all the Fedora wallpapers here. The related process is described here.

[edit] Fedora Supplemental Wallpapers

Each Fedora release includes a collection of selected wallpapers contributed by the Fedora community. There is a submission and evaluation process managed by the design team. The final selected wallpapers are distributed with the release for everyone to use on their desktops.

See more at the supplemental wallpaper site
