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.


New GetFedora Website

TODO: Need some more info on what was done, links etc. Was it F12's cycle?

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 input.

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. Does pointing to the existing wiki page suffice or is it outdated?

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
