Wikimedia Brand Project - Community review in India

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


Wikimedia Foundation Communications department has been exploring global perceptions of Wikimedia brands and how our Movement's brand system could be refined to serve the 2030 goals. The goal is to understand the wide system of Wikimedia project brands (names, logos, perceptions) in 2018, and examine what could be improved to support Wikimedia 2030. The outcomes of this research project are a "brand report" and a “brand strategy.” In 2019, the Foundation's Communications department is sharing the project's outcomes (research and strategy) for review with Wikimedia community members.

Communications team is working to collect feedback from more than 80% of affiliates and as many individual contributors as possible before developing next steps including any Wikimedia brand changes. Community Review will run from February to May 2019. In this context, WMF Community Brand and Marketing Coordinator Samir Elsharbaty is visiting India to collect feedback from affliates and communities in India.
