#706 Google CodeIn participant with Fedora
Opened 3 months ago by sumantrom. Modified 10 days ago

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):
- Fedora participates in Google CodeIn and we have a lot of students who start their open source journey with us. This badge can be claimed for participating in Google CodeIn contest after successfully finishing any task during Google Code IN.

Help the badges team understand what this idea is all about. If this badge is
awarded for certain kinds of activities:

1) What are those activities?

Finishing at least one task in Google CodeIn 2019

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)
- Newcomers and Students

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
- They are getting started with Open Source.

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)
- Everyday during the program duration December 2019 through Feb 2020

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)
- They submit it in Google Codein's lnterface and we review them by IRC and various means. @siddharthvipul1 and @sumantrom are the Org Admin and would like to have the power to allot the badges to students

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?

Hi @viv this is a great start! A couple suggestions to help it fit with the guidelines for badge design.

  • Checking in on the logo from Google. Please provide a link where you got this.. We need to confirm that it is ok to use, and also I am guessing we can't make any alterations to it.
  • The design falls outside the badge design area. (the google logo goes over the edge) We allow this on occasion if the design calls for it. There are some others that were approved without my knowledge that may do this, and need to be revised. This one I think we can fit within the badge design area no problem :)
  • Is the logo a pin on the panda? is the panda holding it? It seems like it is just floating in space there.. you could give the panda a tshirt and put the logo on that.. or you could have the panda holding a laptop with the logo.. or even a piece of paper?? This part is up to you, the logo just needs to be grounded
  • I think the background could use some pop, what about the same sunburst background used here: https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/grillardin-cookbook-iii
  • make sure you are exporting the png at the right size (see guidelines)
  • upload PNG and SVG to ticket for review

Here is a reference for badge design, I would suggest you review and refer to that for help. https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/badges/design-badges/

Looking forward to the next draft :) Thanks!

@riecatnor
I downloaded the logo from https://codein.withgoogle.com/static/img/og-image.png . Then vectorized it with Inkscape. (Should I have left it as raster?)

Well, here are my modifications :) I've got two options.

Hi @viv, I did a google search and found this: https://developers.google.com/open-source/gci/resources/marketing It looks like yes, we can use the logo, with attribution to Google, which is what I expected, and is fine. It doesn't look like they are offering an SVG so what you have should be fine.

When referring to our marks, please include the following attribution statement: "Google Code-in and the Google Code-in logo are trademarks of Google Inc."

The revisions are much improved :) I like the panda with the tshirt best. The panda is looking a lil slim, though? We like chonky pandas here!! Make the panda rounder :) Also, the mouth is a darker color, for other badges we just keep it the same as the rest of the panda color so switch that back to the Fedora blue

Thanks!

@riecatnor Thanks for the feedback. I've made some changes :)

Hi @viv hmm I think the stroke got a little too heavy now hehe. Also for roundness, refer to this design: https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/neurofedora-sig-member

based on that
- remove the neck
- reduce the size of the head a little bit
- make the arms a bit wide and rounder

Thanks!

@riecatnor Thoughts? Not sure if I should round the t-shirt sleeves :D
