This is a draft
This update to the design team page is a work-in-progress, and will change.

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.

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:

Anaconda Re-do

TODO: There were blog posts and mockups/screenshots, should get those and link them. Provide a timeline and explanation about what was done.

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:

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]
