People Involved

  • Emily Dirsh (emily AT glittergallery DOT net)

  • Rohit Paul Kuruvilla (rohitkuruvill AT yahoo DOT co DOT in)
  • Sarup Banskota (sarup AT glittergallery DOT net)

Brief History

One fine day, Máirín(Mo) wrote this blog post[2] about her idea of an open collaboration space for FLOSS designers world over. At a GNOME UX hackfest in London soon after, a bunch of designers got together to discuss what would later become Design Hub. Emily and Mo came up with an early hacky concept and presented it at the Libre Graphics Meeting[3] 2012 in Vienna[4].

Sarup joined in 2013, Design Hub grew to GlitterGallery and went from idea to prototype. Sarup presented GlitterGallery, at the 2014 edition of the Libre Graphics Meeting held in Leipzig[4]. The proposal is to make GlitterGallery available for FLOSS designers to use, in a way that it fits into their workflow without involving much git-fu. In 2014, Rohit joined GlitterGallery as a GSoC student. He worked on improving the project's Git-centric bits.

There have been several contributors to the project since: https://github.com/glittergallery/GlitterGallery/graphs/contributors.
