I've been thinking that working on marketing for libre projects would be awesome!
Is there anyone on the fediverse I could talk to about getting a leg into that industry?
And I'm not talking about just drawings and illustrations but graphics, photoediting and videos, and finally ideas / marketing strategies.
I think I could be a great asset to projects out there.
Your're doing the gods' work there.
The external face of proprietary projects is trendy rich people laughing at nothing, and the reality is crapware, several discussions about licencing, and installation headaches.
The libre alternatives are often faster, safter, easier, and go so much farther in terms of a proportional budget. But the only ads they get are people like me speaking slowly into a crapy mic and talking about RAM usage, and I can see why people feel put off.
something like this for starters? https://mastodon.social/@apertus/103455426543404027
@ChrisTalleras Wishing you all the best!
I don't know where else to point you though, we probably don't have enough infrastructure to coordinate our needs here...
@paperdigits @killyourfm @rgh @alcinnz @ChrisTalleras We've been giving this some thought and met at LGM last year to start a conversation around this (although sadly I've been covered in work/life to-dos that have kept me quiet). We've still got ideas and thoughts we'd love to contribute/share/coordinate about!
@ChrisTalleras I know nothing about the marketing/art/creative industry cause I'm more into the coding stuff, but here's some ideas from my perspective:
You could have a chat with the folks over at @elementary , they seem to be one of the projects that are more experienced with doing marketing/design type stuff. Might help to exchange experiences etc.
You could also make proposals to projects you like? I am sure there's many projects that could use your services!
@ChrisTalleras Great idea, and we would love to chat!
Please DM or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
@ChrisTalleras I think every libre project is in need for something like this, first thing in my mind is Otterways : http://www.otterways.com/index.php?p=home&lg=en-US (french videogame studio) and redbrick : https://redbricks.otterways.com/home
@ChrisTalleras depends on what you want to achieve actually. You could e.g. join https://ura.design/ or if you just want to help with project specific needs, pick one that you like. Currently e.g. @opensuse marketing is in need of support: https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-artwork/2020-01/msg00000.html or pick a job here: https://opensourcedesign.net/jobs/
