description: You submitted an idea for a new badge for Fedora Badges


nice! the 'thought bubble badge' looks a bit small to me, but i can see it can't easily be made any bigger.

do we want to have separate badges for 'proposed' and 'accepted'? or just make it an 'accepted' badge? or only have 'proposed'?

It will be much easier to code if we just make it for "participating in the discussion of new badges".

I was thinking you could use the 'creator:' field of the badge yaml to identify people who've had badges accepted?

yikes, we really need to set up that separate trac for bugs in badges, tracking them here doesn't really work :( but a messy ticket beats no ticket, keeping it open for now.

I think this was originally going to be a series of badges, but we only have one. Could we add maybe one or two more? For if you propose 5 or 10 badges?

@computerkid hmmm is there an SVG for this one in the badges repo? If so can you drop the file here please :) if not, I might be able to dig it out of some mass badge file I had. Or we could revamp the artwork entirely!!

I couldn't find one, sorry. If it's in there is must be VERY misnamed, I tried all different combinations of what it should be called.

+1 to revamping the artwork since we cannot find the SVG.

Summary of design work needed for this ticket:
- Rebuild the current artwork [0] (we don't have the original source file) and make it into a series. One badge each for 1, 5, 10, 20, 50.
- Or, revamp the artwork with a new or similar concept and make it into a series. One badge each for 1, 5, 10, 20, 50.

Hi @smeragoel @riecatnor
I am Kritika, an Outreachy applicant. I want to contribute to this issue.

As suggested above, the current artwork can be rebuilt and made into a series, or we could try a new concept.
I tried a few iterations emphasizing on the concept of 'idea' for a badge.

Iteration 1
iteration_1.svg

Iteration 2
iteration_2.svg

Iteration 3
iteration_3.svg

I am thinking of introducing badges alongside the lightbulb to emphasize on the concept of 'ideas of new badges'
I'd really like to know your inputs on these iterations and work further on them.
Cheers ✌️

Hi @critica thanks for starting work here! I have some notes for you:
- Make sure you upload the SVG and PNGs for any badge tickets you are working on. This helps make the review process a lot easier for badge mentors and future badge artists :)
- Make sure to use the template files found on the badge design docs page and make no changes to the placement, size of the badge, only make additions to the center badge area
- I prefer iteration 3 out of the different versions you have created- since this is about "badge" ideas, using the badger artwork is a fun way to approach this concept
- I would make the light bulb larger, and the numbering smaller. Right now the first thing that pops out to me is the numbering, and we want to focus on the concept of the badge rather than the numbering. Based on this you might move the numbering to the bottom right? Play around with the composition to find a nice balance
- Make the bottom part of the lightbulb dark grey (currently black).. the badger does include some black, but we try to avoid it in badge designs as much as possible
- I would suggest using a lighter orange, or maybe a yellow for the lightbulb? Maybe try a radial gradient? not sure what will work best here, experimentation is needed :)

Looking forward to your next draft!

Sure.
Thanks for your input. I'll get started on the next draft right away.

Hi @riecatnor
Based on your inputs, I created a series of badges.

  • I changed the color of the light bulb and added a few details
  • I tried a few iterations with the number style
  • I changed the badger artwork to look more fun and complement the concept of 'idea'. This artwork also helped better in creating a balance

Iteration Set 1
i0_1.pngi0_1.svgi0_5.pngi0_5.svgi0_10.pngi0_10.svgi0_20.pngi0_20.svgi0_50.pngi0_50.svg

Iteration Set 2

i1_1.pngi1_1.svgi1_5.pngi1_5.svgi1_10.pngi1_10.svgi1_20.pngi1_20.svgi1_50.pngi1_50.svg

Looking forward to your feedback!

I also tried gradient in the light bulb as suggested, and I prefer this iteration over the others because of the visual emphasis it is creating on the light bulb.
I also tried radial gradient to produce the visual effect of the bulb lighting up, but that did not create the desired effect due to the lighter pink background used.

i3_1.pngi3_1.svgi3_5.pngi3_5.svgi3_10.pngi3_10.svgi3_20.pngi3_20.svgi3_50.pngi3_50.svg

HI @critica! Great work, here are some notes:

  • I also prefer the gradient version, it looks very nice!
  • The numbering is very small. Badges are viewed at smaller sizes so small details won't be legible. I'd suggest moving around the artwork and resizing it so that the numbers stand out more. Take a look at the style guide [0] or existing badges [1] to see how they should look
  • The badger's stomach seems to be missing a stroke, on the right side of the white part!

Looking forward to your next iteration!

HI @riecatnor @smeragoel
- Fixed the numbering by resizing and moving the artworks as you suggested
- The badger's stomach is missing a stroke on the right side of the white part in the original artwork itself.
Screenshot_2023-03-13_083041.png
However, I also think that adding a stroke would be better, so that's what I did :video_game:

Iteration 1:

Iteration 2:

i5_1.pngi5_1.svgi5_5.pngi5_5.svgi5_10.pngi5_10.svgi5_20.pngi5_20.svgi5_50.pngi5_50.svg

Also, I was writing a blog for Outreachy.
The prompt for the first week is 'Introduce Yourself'

Could you please help me know if I can write the blog on https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/ ?

Cheers!

Nice work @critica! A few notes:
- Can you try a version with a stroke on the lightbulb? There are strokes on all the other objects in the design and it's sticking out a bit
- I think you can remove the "x", we have a lot of series in Fedora badges and the precedent is to add the number only

As for the blog post, you are welcome to submit a post for review to the Community Blog :) I am not sure what Outreachy intends for the assignment though, you might want to check on the instructions. When I did an Outreachy internship (a long time ago now, so it might have changed!), we were instructed to set up a personal blog

@critica Thanks for your work! Here's my review:
- Great job on the numbering. I think it looks cute.
- Add a lighter stroke on the bulb, like a warm white or light yellow, I think that'd look nice!

Hi @critica nice work! Some notes for you:
- There is some issues with your template and/or exporting.. Make sure you are using the templates on the docs page, making no edits to the template except additions to the grey badge design area in the middle.
- I like the color of the numbering, but I think it might be overpowering the light bulb which is the main focus of the design. I would suggest reducing the size of the numbering some and lowering it into the space right below.. and make the light bulb a bit bigger!

Looking forward to your next draft!
