Hi Unicon makers and fans,
I'm Jess and working at Grafana Labs (makers of the open-source observability tool Grafana) as a UX designer. We are looking for an open-source iconset to use in our software in the future and we really like your icons. We could really use that thin weight you have on your to-do list, so we are open towards helping you making it happen. But to decide how much we can contribute, I need to assess how much time it might take.
I am a designer, not a developer – I can code CSS but have never coded SVG, also I have never contributed to an icon library. So how does it work? What is your workflow, do you start designing the icons visually and then clean up the code? Do you start in CSS or SVG or how do I come up with a new icon? Do you have a design guideline to follow in order to make new designs fit the icon style? How can I and my UX team get involved? And how long does it usually take to design/overwork one icon? Once you have answered these questions, maybe you can add some onboarding in your GitHub repo for noobs like me who want to get involved don't yet know what to do
Looking forward to working with you!
