I’ve been chatting with some folks over on the Sustain OSS discourse about design-related sustainability in OSS and we started to explore a ‘Badges’ project with some of the Sustain OSS folks.
Please see the thread on Sustain OSS’s discourse here: https://discourse.sustainoss.org/t/sustain-discourse-forum-encouraging-community-with-badges/383/10
This project wants to look at both specific badge improvement in the Sustain OSS discourse forum (See badges here) and in general, start to think about a ‘well-designed badge project that could work across OSS projects.’
That latter one is a big, BIG project idea but it could be super fun and exciting
What I’d love to happen -
A chance for OSD community to work on a project in a collaborative way with multiple designers and not just a relationship of 1 designer to 1 job poster.
A chance to start to build a system of badges that are informed by ethical, behaviour science and inclusive principles. Looking at design not just from a visual/graphic pov but a ‘what behaviours can badges encourage in loss projects’ kind of way.
A good connection to the Sustain OSS community who are encouraging of Design + UX in Sustainable OSS (see working group here)
Next steps are:
Is anyone interested in being part of this project?
For how much time (hrs per week/month)?
In what capacity? (visuals, behaviour UX, calls and organising etc.)
