As discussed in our session at the Open Source Design Summit on October 15, we’d like to investigate the possibility of joining forces for a new free software design tool initiative. There are people in various different corners of the free/open source software community who are very unsatisfied with their tools. Many actually use proprietary tools because there is no good free software tool for a task.
We’d like to hear about everyone’s workflow, what they like/dislike about their current tools, and their ideas for better tools. We’re trying to find common pain points that could be addressed by either fixing/enhancing existing tools or building new design tools from scratch.
If we find opportunities to do that, we’d like to start a project that could be either paid for by interested organizations, or perhaps crowdfunded.
