== What We Do ==

= Request Design Help =
 +
The design team provides the following services to Fedora teams, Fedora events, Fedora infrastructure applications and websites, and projects for which Fedora is the upstream:
  
* '''Serve as a design firm for the Fedora community, creating artwork and designs to for the Fedora community on request'''
+
*Web design [[Design/Requirements#Web_Design_Requirements| File a web design ticket]]
 +
*Print design (including swag) [[Design/Requirements#Print_Design_Requirements| File a print design ticket]]
 +
*UX design / usability research [[Design/Requirements#UX_Design_Requirements| File a UX design ticket]]
 +
*Release artwork [[Design/Requirements#Release_Artwork_Requirements| File a release artwork ticket]]
 +
*Digital artwork [[Design/Requirements#Digital_Artwork_Requirements| File a digital artwork ticket]]
 +
*Design & tools education [[Design/Requirements#Design_Education_Requirements| File a design education ticket]]
  
:: How can we measurably achieve this goal? If we advertise this service properly to the Fedora community, successfully get a stream of requests (let's say at least 5 requests per month for a start), and if we can fulfill at least 5 requests per month to the satisfaction of the person requesting them, we can say we have successfully met this goal.

 +
=== Weekly Meetings ===
  
:: How can we measurably achieve this goal? If we can provide the community with at least 1 major resource (tutorial, article, art asset, scheduled lesson event, scheduled outreach event (such as a contest to promote FOSS art tools) under an open license, then we can say we have successfully met this goal.
+
'''NOTE: Our meetings are suspended until further notice while we reorganize / potentially find a better meeting time. Posted 4 March 2020.'''
  
* '''Make it easy for 'creative contributors' to contribute to the Fedora project.'''
+
We have bi-weekly meetings to review tickets, chat, catch up on work, and get team feedback and direction.  Come stop by and meet everyone if you're interested in getting started with our team! We have two meeting times to allow for everyone on the team to be able to make a meeting because of our global nature. To see what time this week's meeting is please check our calendar!
  
:: How can we measurably achieve this goal? If we can attract at least one contributor every 3 months (for example, at least every three months someone new to the artTeam completes a request in the service request pages below), then we could probably say we have successfully met this goal.

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.
