We’re always excited to have new contributors. Our community is diverse in ages, cultures, and interests so we like to operate under the motto:

If you have a creative idea or something you want bring to the table, just do it ;-)

However, it can also be good to check-in if you’re new and unsure about things. Please read our code of conduct and take a moment to consider how you can best contribute to Open Source Design.


Website and all public facing web content that does have it’s own repository


Jobs submitted to Open Source Design which end up on the public job board


Events that are relevant and relate to design and open source and design


Activities related to people interested in growing, developing, and working within the OSD community.

Financial contributions

We also accept financial contributions via our Open Collective account. We have a number of recurring and once-off ways to contribute. Choose which is best for you.

We don’t accept Open Collective contributions from organisations involved in: Casino & Gambling, Pharmacy Products (Weight loss, anti-ageing), and SEO services & social media buying.


Our other GitHub repositories are experimental and undecided exactly what to best do. Among those are:

  • Logos - a collection of remixes.
  • Fonts - some highlights of nice FOSS licensed friendly fonts.
  • Icons - original creations and works-in-progress.
  • Patterns - of common UX patterns in open and proprietary software.
