I should expand on that - I would like the design team to be a resource
for the different groups/teams that will be working on specific items. I
would also expect it to continue generating guidelines, recommendations
or published best practices if you will.
I would not be in favor it acting as a mandated certification body.
Hopefully that is a bit more explanatory as to my thinking.
Thanks again for all the work you putting in,
Thanks for the comments. We should however have some group ultimately
responsible for the release of new designed materials.
IMO the marketing teams create and disseminate materials that often
contain pre-approved design elements (ex logos, graphics, fonts etc.)
from the design team.
Key phrase - pre-approved.
In these cases, and in particular marketing
materials and documents, these should be put to the scrutiny of the
design team when design elements are included.
Again, I simply disagree. As long as a good faith effort to comply with
the guidelines is being made then I see no reason for a vetting process
on each work item.
I think we have been
using this process quite effectively with the marketing materials that
we have published thus far.
For myself I'm trying to set a good example, but if that is being taken
as a sign of my agreement that this one team has final say in all work
product then let me assuage you of that misconception without further
If the person(s) working on a particular item wants to put their work up
for review, I would encourage them to do so, voluntarily.
As far as the text in the material, in this particular case ...
marketing material, the marketing team would give approval for the text
included in document/materials. Marketing text is not the area of
expertise of the design team.
It goes without saying that in both these cases the TDF membership is
involved through their participation in these groups giving validity to
the approval process of both groups.
So, in this particular case, dealing with the 3rd party icons, it would
seem to me, the design team should be given mandate of assuring the
proper usage of these icons
On this one point - yes I agree.
