This twitter thread where the Foundation sought out opinions of their logo update brings up so many thoughts, including:

* How shitty many free software enthusiasts are to designers
* How simply asking "what do you think?" to the random public rarely solicits helpful feedback
* How is difficult to do and needs more experimentation and practitioners to grow and improve

@clayton what's crazy is there are good designers doing an insane amount of this exact type of work for free to build their portfolio or promote. they do spec redesigns of corporate software (search "redesign concept" on behance, dribbble, etc.) there are just culture, communication, networking and infrastructure barriers to matching their skills to FOSS needs where they can be working on actual products.

@colombene yeah! good point! lots of potential in this space...
