As a part of the design team for the biggest WordPress conference in the world — WordCamp Europe, I worked on branding, website theme and various other tasks. As a designer, it was challenging working under “constraints” of open–source, but I pulled through and learned a lot in the process, and I’d like to share that experience with you.

This talk is not about which tools to use or how to pick the project to contribute to. It’s about becoming a better designer by honing your communication skills and empathy towards your colleagues and people who will end up using your designs. By volunteering and contributing to open–source projects you’ll get the opportunity to work on challenging or a particular type of projects you might not otherwise have.

The design is less about making beautiful pictures you can sign your name onto; It’s more about creating a positive impact and improving the experience of the people using it.
