Continuing the discussion from
Summary of February 2023 Fedora Badges Community Roundtable meeting:
Here is a dedicated topic to review and collect feedback on the Design charter for Fedora Badges. This is in the context of the 2023 Badges revamp and better organizing our stakeholders. We aim to conclude feedback gathering and ratify a final charter by our April roundtable meeting on Wednesday, 19 April at 12:00 UTC.
Hi! Marie and I met yesterday evening to discuss the charter for the Fedora Badges Revamp design subteam, and we have a first draft ready!
Design Charter for Fedora Badges
Short Version: The Fedora Badges Revamp Design subteams mission is to develop, implement, and support all of the visual aspects of Fedora Badges, in line with Fedora’s aesthetic.
Long Version: The Fedora Badges Revamp Design subteam’s mission is to develop, implement, and publish a style guide to make all badges visually appealing and in line with a common Fedora aesthetic. Our goal is to provide high-quality badge designs that are modern, user-friendly, and fit seamlessly with the chosen front end. The subteam will also develop and support implementation of a front end design for Fedora Badges if required.
Scope of the Project:
Work closely with the Fedora Badges Revamp project’s developer sub-team to understand the goals and objectives and reflect them in the UI / front-end and badge designs.
Redesign the badges format to be well presented within the discourse front end.
Design and aid in the creation of a standalone website if required.
Improve and update Badge Design documentation in order to ease the path to contribution. Promote this updated documentation in order to boost Fedora Badges design contributions.
Implementation of modernized Badges template. This entails moving all the artwork into the new template and making edits as necessary to adhere to the updated style guide.
The Badge Design subteam is to collaborate and communicate effectively with the Fedora Badges Revamp project’s developers and stakeholders.
The Design subteam will be adaptable to changes in project objectives and requirements.
The Design subteam will meet agreed-upon deadlines and deliverables to the best of their ability.
The Design subteam is to follow the Fedora community’s Code of Conduct and to maintain a respectful and inclusive contributor environment.
Emma Kidney and Marie Nordin will act as the Fedora Badges sub-team co-leads.
Smera Goel, with Marie Nordin, will mentor a Fedora Badges Design Intern through the Outreachy program May-August 2023.
Fedora Badge designers, Fedora Design team members, and any interested contributors can participate with design tasks and provide feedback.
