#807 Revamp "Rockin' the Web" Badge
Opened 6 months ago by riecatnor. Modified 3 months ago

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):
Original badge: https://pagure.io/Fedora-Badges/issue/183

  • Please update title of badge to: Rockin' & Rollin'

Please update description of badge to: You work on Fedora Websites & Apps, you rock!

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?
- There is a revamp going on to merge the Websites team with a group of folks working on web apps (formerly under fedora infra). We want to update this badge for the revamp to include the "apps" part :)

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)
- Members of the Websites & Apps team, they maintain & improve Fedora websites & apps.

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
- To make Fedora more accessible, more engaging, etc

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)
- As folks can contribute to they team, they do

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)
- Front end/back end development for websites & application development

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?
- Let's update the current artwork. Maybe put the badger on a stage, give it some cool lighting, like it is putting on a rock show :D


Metadata Update from @riecatnor:
- Custom field artwork adjusted to None

Do we need new artwork or just the new name?

I want to work on this ticket. I have few ideas which include the ideas mentioned above like putting the badger onto the stage and the public taking pictures through their smartphones. What do you think about this idea?

HI @computerkid we want both!

Hi @suchitapallavi that might be a lot to try to fit into a badge design, but feel free to attempt it if you'd like. Remember the badges are quite small so try to keep it very simple. Best of luck!

Hey @riecatnor , I was thinking of working on some badges too as I work on the design issues, so can I start with this? I see you have added a work from before, I also have some idea to get started!

Hey @riecatnor , sorry I couldn't wait for your reply and tried my hands on this :DD

I went through the guide decided:
1. It's a community badge it has to have thread around background
2. Got the badge template of the community badge
3. green background for the membership badge
4. I used the previous badger as i felt it was good, I dont know, should i make a new one?

A few new things I added:
1. changed the disco ball to a new one
2. added a stage/floor
3. added star goggles
4. added more stars

I tried following the guidelines as much as I could. Please let me know if I went wrong anywhere
also this was my first time on inkscape, mine is quite slow do you any way i could fix this? It's a really cool software! It is very different in many ways from the softwares I usually use so it took me a bit more time

Waiting for your feedbacks and suggestions!!

Doing this now

Hi @swast1 thanks for beginning work on this! As far as inkscape performance, just make sure you have latest software updates for your operating system & inkscape. That is probably the best that can be done, and you can probably get some more memory/improved performance by shutting down other applications. It works quite quickly on fedora 33 :D

Here are a couple recommendations for the artwork:
- What if you kept the original badge composition and added in elements around it? The object you put in at the bottom is looking a bit awkward. What if instead you made the entire background the dark grey? Because you are working on a full illustration, it is ok if the background isn't green.
- Maybe instead of trying to convert the web symbol to look like a disco ball (because we still want to portray the web aspect here) add in some colored spotlights to give it some interest :)
- I love the star glasses! so cute
- I like the stars in the background as well, but they are kinda blending in right now, especially the white ones. I think this will resolve with a darker background
- Please upload a PNG version to the ticket as well for easy review
Looking forward to your next draft !

Hello! This seemed like an interesting design concept for me, having never worked on badges before, so I gave it a shot. I tried to include the "Apps" part of the team using a mobile phone. Here are my first drafts @riecatnor:

Also @swast1, for inkscape performance, I would recommend going to Edit>Preferences>Input/Output>Rendering, and trying to adjust the settings there. Increase the thread count and cache size, and reduce the filter and blur quality to your liking.

Hey peeps- thanks for the work here, comments below!

@swast1 wow, you made a lot of options :D I have some notes for you:
- I like pieces from several of them, so I am going to list those off and hopefully you like them too and can combine them to make a rad updated design!
- Make sure you are using the template correctly, and exporting at 256x256 pixels
- I like how the background is lighter in this one, as well as the pose. I think you could make the background even lighter to help the badger stand out (or even change the color? this is a team member badge, so green would make sense. I think the black on grey is making it hard to read): https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issue/raw/files/06cff7bdf91c91902fc02f29913d8431088fa16655d5fe2f86f0373c50c78c85-webbapp2.png
- I am cool with a diff color guitar, but I think the green is getting a bit washed out.. maybe try the purple or orange?
- I like how you did the stars in this one.. in the second round the stars kind of take over the design: https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issue/raw/files/03e4a9d418c1cc20aa423f1335b53cd195c3abd133a605825cdf588ea9727771-roki.png

@leena_harani nice start! I have a couple notes for you:
- I like all the elements you have in the design, but they seem a bit disjointed currently.
- I would make the badger a bit bigger as that is the main focus of the badge
- I like the spotlights, you should add in a couple more :)
- Right now the web and app objects are just kind of floating.. The best idea I have is to put them onto a "poster" or "banner" behind the rocking badger :) good luck!

Hi @riecatnor,
I made a badge rock-in-web with a few variations. The badger is a rock singer. I tried to follow the guidelines, but I would like your input on how I am doing. I need to take a designing badge workshop. Would you mind letting me know when you will conduct another class?
