Design meeting notes Feb 8

This is the design meeting summary of February 8. 2018 (Slack log)

We pushed Housekeeping to the end this week, since @Karmatosed had an item but knew she’d be late.

Calls for Design

Marketing team Jargon Glossary needs a featured imageFeatured image A featured image is the main image used on your blog archive page and is pulled when the post or page is shared on social media. The image can be used to display in widget areas on your site or in a summary list of posts., as well as a nicely formatted PDF. No one was able to jump on this immediately, but @Boemedia may revisit next week.

Items labeled ready for meeting discussion

Illustrations for requested by @cathibosco. Lots of feedback on increasing inclusiveness of illustrations and also about design specs.

Requests to review existing tickets

@Rileybrook requested feedback on GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. issue Language around transformations inconsistent #4416. Consensus from roundtable was Transform into is more descriptive and easier to translate to other languages, as opposed to Turn into.

Triage items from Inbox

nothing this week


@Karmatosed shared the fact that the Design Team may soon have access to and InVision account. A shared tool like that will really help, so she’ll keep us posted on progress.

Also, the process for asking for feedback on an existing issue or ticket was clarified on TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the team uses for example: by @Mizejewski.

If time allows

We looked at Suggestions for Design Resources page on the Handbook. We talked about how to periodically review this for updates, as well as how to make it more usable/scannable. For example, links to WPTV with a short description rather than embedding videos.  Discussion will continue in the card, and we will review outcomes next week.
