Summary

Currently Artwork effort is splintered and unorganized with tasks falling to individuals or groups with limited communication or collaboration. Although there is a desire by members to contribute processes are ill defined and confusing.

Rationale

Re-organize the Artwork Team in a manner which encourages inclusion, provides a recognition of effort, and facilitates collaboration to achieve the desired result. Processes must be well defined and agreed to satisfy the fast pace of the release cycle. Requirements ( colors, size, audience ) and schedule ( current release, current release +1, specific date ) must be defined prior to the development.

Use Cases

Scope

The scope of this effort is limited to the Artwork Team.

Design

The design of this spec is focused on process improvement and tool identification.

Summary

Define the processes for requesting and submitting artwork and the desired tools to support these processes.

Rationale

This desired outcome of this specification is to improve the processes of the Art Team to encourage participation.
