angusfretwellHello, I'm looking to volunteer my time as a graphic and UI designer. Am I in the right place? :S13:52
coz_angusfretwell,   well not sure actually... you may want to speak with thorwil   or kwwii14:21
angusfretwellOK thanks :)14:22
thorwilangusfretwell: hi! while wanting to volunteer is great and generous, as things are, you pretty much have to take an active approach15:00
angusfretwellOK, so just jump in and do some stuff, you mean?15:01
thorwilangusfretwell: if wallpapers don't happen to be of central interest for you, ubuntu-artwork is not quite the right place (i wish it was)15:01
angusfretwellAh, OK15:01
angusfretwellIs there a better place?15:02
thorwilangusfretwell: almost. even better if there's an actual need you can fill15:02
thorwilangusfretwell: depends on what you want to do15:02
thorwilthere are quite a number of options for what approach you could try15:02
angusfretwellwhat i'm mainly good at is user interface design15:03
angusfretwellwhether it be for the web or otherwise15:03
thorwilangusfretwell: UX for ubuntu/unity is hard to get in, because a lot is happening in teams of full time employees. meanwhile, the ayatana list as point of entry for the community is just very noisy15:04
angusfretwellthorwil: OK, I'll take a look ath that15:05
thorwilangusfretwell: you could perhaps look for an application you care for, where you see room for improvement15:06
thorwilangusfretwell: and then get into contact with the developers to get an idea if they would agree and for what would be feasible15:06
thorwilto then do mockups, eventually15:07
angusfretwellthorwil: OK, I'll try that, too.15:07
thorwilangusfretwell: do you have an online portfolio?15:11
angusfretwellthorwil: No, not at the moment15:11
thorwilangusfretwell: the people in #gnome-design on irc.gnome.org _might_ have one or the other idea on what else  you could work on. though i think asking during weekdays might lead to better results15:15
angusfretwellOK thanks for all your help :)15:15
