Calls for involvement

Here are some calls for involvement for the design team:

  • Gutenberg continues to need people to give feedback and create designs.
  • Volunteers are also wanted for people to run triages. You will be taught how to do this so you don’t need any experience. Just raise your virtual hand in #design on Slack.

If you are having a WordCamp that has a design contribution table, please reach out in #design so you can be added in future updates.
