Fedora Design Team Meeting 24 March 2015
Ticket 361: Fedora Reflective Bracelet
This ticket involved a simple design for a reflective bracelet for bike riders to help them be more visible at night. The imprint area was quite small and the ink only one color, so this was fairly simple.
Tickets Open For You to Take!
One of the things we required to join the design team is that you take and complete a ticket. We have one ticket currently open and awaiting you to claim it and contribute some design work for Fedora :):
- Ticket #358: Create Artwork for Cockpit banner to display in Anaconda GUI – We need someone to design a banner to advertise a Fedora Server tool called Cockpit. More instructions are in the ticket.
Fedora 22 Supplemental Wallpapers Vote Closes Tomorrow!

(Oh yeah, don’t forget – You’ll get a special Fedora badge just for voting!)
Fedora 22 Default Wallpaper Plan
A question came up what our plan was with the Fedora 22 wallpaper – Ryan Lerch created the mockups that we shipped / will ship in the alpha and beta and the feedback we’ve got on these is positive thus far so we’ll likely not change direction for Fedora 22’s default wallpaper. The pattern is based on the pattern Ryan designed for the Fedora.next product artwork featured on getfedora.org.
However, it is never too early to think about F23 wallpaper. If you have some ideas to share, please share them on the design team list!
2015 Flock Call for Papers is Open!
Flock is going to be at the Hyatt Regency in Rochester, New York. The dates are August 12 to August 15.
Gnokii proposed that we figure out which design team members are intending to go, and perhaps we could plan out different sessions for a design track. Some of the sessions we talked about:
- Design Clinic – bring your UI or artwork or unfiled design team ticket to an open “office hours” session with design team members and get feedback / critique / help.
- Wallpaper Hunt – design team members with cameras could plan a group photoshoot to get nice pictures that could make good wallpapers for F23 (rietcatnor suggested Highland Park as a good potential place to go.
- Badge Design Workshop – riecatnor is going to propose this talk!
I started a basic wiki page to track the Design Team Flock 2015 presence – add your name if you’re intending to go and your ideas for talk proposals so we can coordinate!
(I will message the design-team list with this idea too!)
