GNOME Design Team
GNOME design is a loose, informal team that works on the design of the GNOME user experience and developer experiences. The primary areas of work are OS design, application design, visual theme and icons. Resources for each of these areas can be found below.
The best way to contact the team is through the #gnome-design IRC channel.
We are always looking for new design contributors, so please get in touch if you want to help. There is also a contribution guide.
Providing feedback and ideas
Design issues with GNOME software should be reported through GitLab and more general feedback can be provided via specific module mailing lists. If you want to discuss a particular design issue, or have ideas of your own, please use the #gnome-design IRC channel for an initial conversation.
