FLOCK 2016! Learn How to Get Involved in Creating Fedora Badge Designs

Another year, another wonderful FLOCK! Thanks to everyone who put in the hard work to make this event a success. The first day and a half have been informative and fun, learning about what everyone in Fedora is up to, catching up with new and old friends and seeing some of beautiful Kraków. Just before I made my way here to Poland, I met up with the Fedora Design Team in Boston, MA, for a FAD. We tried out a new event for our team that was free to the public, an Inkscape and Fedora Badges Bootcamp, with success! So riding on the tail end of that I am excited to be here with the rest of the Fedora family and to continue working on Fedora Badges and getting people involved.

I will be holding a Fedora Badges Workshop this year at FLOCK with Mariia Leonova on Thursday at 1:30PM in the OpenQA room. I encourage everyone who is interested in the designs of Fedora Badges to attend. This is a chance for you to learn the process of designing a badge, from setting up the tools you will need(typeface & palettes) to the final step of getting approval on your design. You can choose one of our preselected “newbie” tickets, and with the help of a few seasoned Fedora Badge designers begin to design a badge. This is a great chance to jump into Inkscape, as we will help you navigate the program and learn by doing. No need to have super artistic skills, as a lot of badges can be created by mashing up previous designs and artwork.

I look forward to seeing any and all of you at the workshop, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of FLOCK this year.
