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 ;), 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 the news from last year include:
