Our Open Source Design collective

and group photo

For everyone who doesn’t know what exactly we do, this is a short intro to our collective: We work to raise the profile of good design in open source software, and connect developers & designers to make it happen.

We run an Open Source Design community forum, organize design tracks at well-known events like FOSDEM (hello πŸ™‹), FOSSASIA and OpenTechSummit, have a job board to get designers involved, provide open design resources to developers & designers, and more.

We will also take our GROUP PHOTO during this session! 😊

A few of our activities from last year include:

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Lots and lots of posts on our Open Source Design job board! 2️⃣ Organization of our second Open Source Design Summit in Tirana! πŸ’Έ Sponsored by Sticker Mule, Mozilla & phpList and supported by Open Technology Fund, Ura Design, Red Hat & Nextcloud πŸ“‘ More activity on our Discourse forum!

Things we are working on or need to work on:

πŸ’¬ Attending a bunch of events and giving talks related to Open Source Design 🎨 Attendance at more mainstream design events! β­• Still working on becoming an Open Source Initiative affiliate πŸ‘₯ We need to do more on the meetup front: – NYC is active, but we can improve elsewhere πŸ’» Another work in progress is the website, we are looking into improving the design. ;)

✨ Probably lots more we forgot to list! :)
