Design and LibreOffice – what lies behind, what is ahead

This talk will focus on what the design team (together with the rest of the community) has achieved in the past year, what it hasn't yet, what we'd like to and where you can pitch in.

Details of the Talk

This talk will try to give a primer on what we've done, who we are and where you can help out.

There's a number of areas where the design team has worked closely together with the developers to improve LibreOffice:

  • Two new dialogues in Calc
  • The splash screens and other logo-bearing imagery was updated
  • New masterpages for Impress
  • etc.

(And some things were left by the wayside.)

There also were a number of changes to the way the design team works:

  • different Whiteboard workflow on the wiki
  • IRC and Google Plus as additional means of communication
  • Some quite significant members sadly had to leave the team


For the future, we are interested in:

  • Particular enhancements to LibreOffice (see our Whiteboard pages)
  • Further improving our process
  • Finding an actual vision for the future LibreOffice


Where you can pitch in:

  • Graphic design (icons, templates, marketing material)
  • UX design (mainly improving existing UI)


(20–25 minutes talk, 5 minutes QA)
