The Design Team provides experience, interface, and visual design expertise for the WordPress project.
Want to get involved? See our handbook and drop into #design once signed up for volunteer opportunities.

As is the last Wednesday of the month, we will have a Show & Tell Meeting. This is a video meeting using Zoom where contributors have the opportunity to share their work and ask for feedback from the team.
The link to the Zoom Meeting will be posted on the Slack channel and the meeting will be recorded for those who cannot attend. A summary will also be posted in lieu of meeting notes. You can also check out the summary post for the month of April.
If you would like to share your work, show up to the call and raise your hand or let us know in the comments.
We have an open call for note-takers and triage facilitators. These both are great ways to get involved for new contributors but everyone is welcome to help out. Let us know if you are interested in the comments.

Feature Freeze in 6 days on Tuesday, May 25th
BetaBetaA pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 1 in 20 days on Tuesday, June 8th
RCRelease CandidateA beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge. 1 in 41 days on Tuesday, June 29th
Work continues on both Github and in Figma; Please do join in the fun and help us out. If you have any thoughts or feedback feel free to drop a comment on the P2P2P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at https://make.wordpress.org/.. Thanks!
This is a call for testing for the new blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. based Widgets Editor. Please report your findings on GithubGitHubGitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ in the Gutenberg repository as issues or in the comments below. If you have triage access, labeling any issue with [Feature] Widgets Screen or [Feature] Widgets Customizer, depending on the issue, would be very helpful.

@keoshi proposed a couple of changes to existing icons a few new ones
Tweaking existing icons: make a slight tweak to icons that have human representations: replace the solid dot (generally reserved for interface elements) for a more open, outlined shape. Not only does this styling match the rest of the icon, it’s also much more consistent with the rest of the library, and it humanizes these icons.
Adding new icons: grow the library by introducing new icons: bug, no-bug, security, card-add, key, and box-3d. These last two I’m not super happy with the results and could definitely use more love.
People and block-post-author icons.
The solid dot is generally used for interface elements, so I’m proposing opening up the shape a bit and outline it instead to humanize these two icons a bit.
bug/no-bug to be used in technical contexts such as issues, bug reports, fixes, changelogs, etc.
backward/forward useful for navigation.
key to be paired with the lock icons, or for plugins that support licenses.
card-add a generic element to add new elements beyond just the block editor.
security using the shield metaphor applies to site health and plugins in general.
box-3d to highlight physical products or related services.
He’s still on the fence about the 3D box because it would be the first use to use some sort of perspective so it could introduce that major inconsistency.
Design team will post a detailed P2 about it.
For Figma workshop: At the moment, the design team doesn’t have people available to run the Figma workshop for WCEU. If anyone is available and willing to, please @estelaris know. It could be a basic workshop on how we use Figma for WP.
