The vector source file for this design is available (see below.) You'll need to modify it so the design isn't specific to the Fedora Women's Day event and the design can serve as a more general 'Fedora Diversity Team' design. You can stick as close to the design as you'd like and that's perfectly fine, and you are also free to take some creative license with it under the guidance of your mentor (@duffy.)

'''Size requirements, can be standard paper size or width and height'''

  • Apparel or product type

T-shirt

  • Number of colors to use

Minimal. 2 if possible.

  • Background color of the object

White will cut # of colors needed down to 2.

  • Print or embroidery

Steps For Working on This Ticket

  1. If you do not have a Fedora Account system account already, go ahead and sign up for one.
  2. Log in to this site, http://pagure.io/design, and click on 'take' on this ticket in the right corner to claim this ticket.
  3. Download the Montserrat font pack, which includes the Montserrat Alternates typeface that was used for this design.
  4. Install Inkscape. You will use this to create the design.
  5. Install Scribus. You will use this to prep the design for printing.
  6. Download the SVG source file for the Fedora Women's Day design./29fa1ddcef99dbc1ca3160999d01802bb96854b5fd3563b39f6a39df0583f689-ticket537.svg).
  7. Open up the Fedora Women's Day SVG you just downloaded in Inkscape and modify the design to be more generally usable by removing any mentions of the Fedora Women Day event. Feel free to use creative license here. Note that the main version of the design in the file has text that has been converted to paths - a version where the text has not been converted to paths in to the right of the canvas borders.
  8. When you have a design you're happy with, please post a PNG preview + your SVG file here on this ticket by attaching the files to a new comment to get feedback.
  9. Once your mentor has approved your design, please convert the fonts to paths in Inkscape, save the SVG, and post the final version here to the ticket in a new comment.
  10. Next, open the SVG up in Scribus and convert the design to CMYK color, and save the file out as a PDF and post here. This is the print-ready artwork. (Not sure how to do this? We have a tutorial available here.
  11. You're done! The ticket will be complete at this point, and you'll qualify to become an official member of the Fedora Design Team. :)

Hi,
I'm interested in finishing this task. But I don't see any 'take' option in any ticket and fatal error 500 is being displayed while clicking on the svg file link.
It'd be great if you help @duffy :')

Thanks @duffy for creating the ticket. It will be great to do it in next two weeks. We are planning to get it done before devconf and I am not sure about vendor as of now. Thanks.

Yes, I am able to download it now. Thank you so much for posting it @akshay196

@duffy See my first preview of design. I have used different shapes like circle, square which relate to 'diversity'. If there are changes, let me know.

FDTticket569.png

Hey @akshay196 ! Great progress! Here's some feedback:

  • My first reaction is overall the balance is weighted pretty heavily towards the left. Have you thought about how the positioning on the T-shirt will work and if a left bias is going to look OK or not?

  • Since this is going to be screen printed, we need to stick to the three color (blue, dark blue, white) color palette. It looks like you've introduced outlines and a new lighter blue color - I would use the blue color already in place and drop the outlines so the style of the shapes matches the visual style of the other shapes on the right to keep the production cost down.

  • I like how you've translated the roots => plant concept from the original design into a branch flourish on the left, and carried it over. That's really quite nice. I would work on the rendering of the main / thicker branch, it looks a bit uneven and you want it to look smooth and regular. If you need help with this let me know and I can give you some Inkscape bezier tips.

  • I suspect the leaves / petals on the flourish branch are going to be too small for the screen printing process and are going to get distorted or removed by the vendor. I would scale them up a little bit - particularly the tiniest one in the lower right.

  • I like the concept of having different shapes represent diversity - the larger shapes in the upper left corner though seem disconnected from the rest of the logo. Can you bring them in better? Maybe connect them to the branch? Maybe scale them down a bit to better match the scale of the right side shapes? Also, the bubble shape used in the shapes on the right is from the Fedora logo, whereas these shapes are a bit arbitrary, ideally it'd be nice to use shapes that were from the Fedora logo / branding and had that clear visual link.

I hope this is helpful, this is a great initial mockup! What do you tihnk?

Hello @duffy. Thank for the feedback.

My first reaction is overall the balance is weighted pretty heavily towards the left. Have you thought about how the positioning on the T-shirt will work and if a left bias is going to look OK or not?

Yeah I noticed that. I am still thinking about how to change design to keep proper balance. I think i need to re position left tree structure. What say?

Since this is going to be screen printed, we need to stick to the three color (blue, dark blue, white) color palette. It looks like you've introduced outlines and a new lighter blue color - I would use the blue color already in place and drop the outlines so the style of the shapes matches the visual style of the other shapes on the right to keep the production cost down.

Roger that. That is good. I am changing left sided shapes to match it with right side style.

I like how you've translated the roots => plant concept from the original design into a branch flourish on the left, and carried it over. That's really quite nice. I would work on the rendering of the main / thicker branch, it looks a bit uneven and you want it to look smooth and regular. If you need help with this let me know and I can give you some Inkscape bezier tips.

I have tried to make smooth curve for branch but I can't accomplish it. Some bezier tips would be nice.

I suspect the leaves / petals on the flourish branch are going to be too small for the screen printing process and are going to get distorted or removed by the vendor. I would scale them up a little bit - particularly the tiniest one in the lower right.

Got it. Working on it.

I hope this is helpful, this is a great initial mockup! What do you tihnk?

All your suggestions are really helpful. I would make changes accordingly and will post new design here once completed. Thanks again
Should I have to upload SVG file along with PNG?

@akshay196 wonderful, I look forward to your next draft! You should attach both the SVG and PNG!

Hello @duffy, Here is my next preview of design. I have changed many things from previous. Hope you like it.

@ akshay196 great! you've really taken the feedback into account. The balance here is much nicer! Overall I am a little worried about the more square shapes clashing, particularly because the whole right side is only rounded shapes without the more square ones. I would round out the square ones in the top left more so the two sides better match! Here's some more points for improvement:

feedbackv2.png

I had these 2-3 ideas regarding diversity team t-shirt. We could play with the typography of D along the lines of fedora logo. I kinda liked the concept of using a tree for depicting diversity, so I've kept it in the first design. I've tried to made it simple yet be able to convey the idea. The position of this design on the t-shirt would be similar to the Women's day design (in the centre area).

fedora1.png

Diversity could also be depicted by colours. The variety of colours that are brought into the team because of the diverse amount of people we have in fedora. The constraint of using lesser amount of colours in screen printed t-shirt could easily be solved by depicting it as a paint blotch. I've tried removing small blotches of paint around the bigger blotch, so it'd be easier to screen-print. The position of this design in the t-shirt could be on the upper half of the t-shirt (the chest/breast zone).

This was the third idea, to make a doodle out of "Diversity" and depicting the motto of diversity team that way. But I still am not sure about this idea.

The svg file is kinda messy, with each idea on a different layer.

I'd love to hear comments and critques :')

Edit: Apologies for absence of bleeding area while exporting. Couldn't figure out how to do that.

Hey @duffy, I have smoothen the curves in design. I don't have official fedora logo to use, but I think I will look good if we use official logotype.

FDTticket569_3.png

FDTticket569_3.svg

@akshay196 can you send an email to logo@fedoraproject.org to get the fedora logotype svg?

Some more feedback:

  • the lower left leaf/petal on the left composition is still pretty square - can you dupe the bubble from the right side and use that?
  • the upper left leaf/petal on the left composition has a flat spot - maybe just dupe the bubble from the right side so you have a clean copy?
  • i think the trunk of the main branch is still problematic. i think the bottom should probably be completely flat? can you try something like the basic shape of the branch on top here:

@bournvita ugh, i've gotten very confused about this ticket, i see that you claimed it first but @akshay196 has been working it. I dont understand why/how this happened. would you like to work on a different bounty?

@duffy Yeah sure :') I too was confused with this.
Can you suggest me a different ticket please?
~thanks

@duffy @bournvita My mistake. I had not seen that ticket is assigned to @bournvita. I had started working on it, without seeing assignee.

@akshay196 thats cool, you're so close to done i would say keep working on it. @bournvita i'm doing triage now so if something pops up i'll ping you on it.

@akshay196 hey, are you still interested in finishing this ticket?

@akshay196 hey, are you still interested in finishing this ticket?

Yes. I am working on it. Here i have done some changes like used fedora logotype, used bubble shape instead of square :

@akshay196 that looks perfect to me! @amsharma - what do you think?

@akshay196 thanks it looks good to me.
Thanks @duffy :)

Great!

@akshay want to try your hand at prepping this for print? I have a tutorial on how to do it here:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_set_CMYK_color_on_a_design_for_printing#Vector_Recipe

@duffy @amsharma Thank you so much. Here is prepped version of design for print:

Document.pdf

@akshay196 this is perfect, thank you! i'm going to send you an invite to join the design team group in FAS in recognition for your fantastic work here.

@amsharma do you need anything else?

(closing ticket so akshay gets the design team ticket completion badge, feel free to reopen if anything else is needed.)
