Distributed Design Quality Label

A project by
Distributed Design Platform

About the project

The Quality Label open badges system of the Distributed Design Platform serves to offer various entry points, allowing diverse profiles to join the Distributed Design Platform community. The badges are the result of collaborative efforts with Distributed Design Platform members to develop a quality label that is aligned with the platform’s core values: Open, Collaborative, Regenerative, Ecosystemic. These digital certificates serve as evidence of the people and community’s commitment to the values of the Distributed Design Platform and it can be displayed to showcase their commitment, support, and efforts to shape the Distributed Design Platform ecosystem. By earning these badges, individuals, collectives, practitioners and organisation can be recognised of their work, whether projects or practices and demonstrate their active involvement and engagement with the Distributed Design Platform community. The Quality Label aim to establish community trust and collective growth according to the Distributed Design Platform’s community values. Through these forms, you’ll be able to request the Distributed Design Platform Ecosystem and Impact badge.
