Hi all!

please go on :-)

In our recent discussions, we became aware that it is finally time to
kick-off the LibreOffice Design Team that wants to, "Make it just work,
and look great, too!"

But, are we complete? I don't know, so I'd like to invite you to join -
if you have interest, or even some background concerning one of the
following areas:

      * User experience: User experience considers the user's point of
        view even before and also during the use of LibreOffice. It aims
        for productivity, usability and enjoyment and targets both the
        the LibreOffice project's Web resources and the LibreOffice
        software. If you're interested in or have expertise in research,
        design and evaluation methods, we want to hear from you!

      * Visual identity design: Visual identity design is about creating
        stunning artwork to be used in the LibreOffice productivity
        suite, in the LibreOffice project's Web infrastructure, and in
        the LibreOffice project's marketing material. It is also about
        improving the quality and consistency of the visual branding
        language, which represents our whole community.

      * Accessibility: Accessibility is about making the software usable
        for everyone: people with and people without special needs. To
        achieve this challenging goal, we implement the laws and
        technologies that are that are widely-recognized requisites in
        the field.

      * User support and training: This is about sharing your experience
        when providing support and training for end users. It helps us
        identify important areas for improvement and establish essential

Consequently, if you'd like to work on improvements that target both the
community and our large end-user base, then the Design Team is the right
place for you.

What to do now? If you are interested, then please subscribe to our
Design mailing list. Within the following days, we will discuss on list
how we'll proceed. Thanks!

Well, we are looking forward to see you!


Disclaimer: The Design Team is not (yet) the right place for you, if you
want to ask for an overhauled user interface, or to ask us to resolve
issues that drove you mad (personally). At the very moment, it is about
to get a team to finally work on such topics ... not so much the other
way round :-)
