GNOME Design Team
The GNOME UX Design Team is a group of individuals work on the design of the GNOME user experience and developer experiences. The primary areas of work are core OS design, core application design, and the visual theme and icons. Resources for each of these areas can be found below.

There are a number of ways that developers and maintainers can make contact with the design team:
