Design meeting notes for June 27, 2018

Transcript of the whole meeting can be found in our Slack-channel.

Sketchpress and WP Admin Design System

Special topic: we spent a good portion of the meeting discussing how to bring together a few amazing Sketch resources that have been developed. The hope if that having one source of truth will make it easier to accelerate design for anyone working in the WordPress community. See SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at for the whole discussion but some highlight are noted here.

The resources and creators are:

  • @Sarah James from 10Up
  • @garusky from Milan
  • @Joen has an extensive Sketch file and library from his work 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.

Where will this live?

  • The SketchPress repo I created already has traffic and followers, so keeping it all in there might be good
  • A contributions file in the repo would be key to capturing all the efforts that would be merged into the single location
  • A solution is still being discussed…

How can we all contribute to this and help?

  • Let’s all be thinking about this
