I'm a bit confused about the main content that is currently on https://codeberg.org/Codeberg/Design/ :

image

Information given here is rather technical in nature and does not invite or clarify actual design questions (as they would come up for me as a designer), instead it talks about how code that "implements" design is supposed to be contributed.

The text is somewhat strange/out of place:

  • Codeberg.org is all about Free and Open Content and Software.

That sounds like a general pitch for the project, not its design repo specifically

  • Here is the place to chat about and develop Codeberg.org’s visual identity and assets.

discussion happens in the issues section (could be linked), not on the readme.md

  • This discussion originally started in this issue. The various topics and requests brought up there will be made into issues on this repo.

The referred issue is about to be closed, also issues do not need to originate there to be created :P

  • Get started

This suggest that design process here is identical to how code gets created. Having created the logo, design guidelines and assets I beg to differ that you ahve to start that way ;) . To say the least it probably isn't the only way to get started…

  • Submit changes

Same here. I would like to invite desingers to see this as a place where you don't have to participate by contributing code. This sets the wrong tone, even if the information may be relevant to some design related tasks. –> better as a detailed wiki page imho.

In my opinion readme.md could be swapped with the current wiki-page called branding and be expanded a bit, so that it deals with actual design questions.

A wiki seems to be the better fit for explaining any process and setting up environments.

This needs an update. PR welcome

@mray thanks for mentioning the Wiki, as I wasn't aware of its existence.

I think part of the change should also be to show examples of the logo designs on the README, like:

Codeberg logo kit

logo formats
Codeberg favicon
favicon
PNG (32px)
PNG (64px)
SVG

Where the format column links directly to the raw content (so right-click + save works).
