Our design team put a lot of effort into a new logo in the last weeks and it finally came to life! The original logo was designed by Tammie Lister and it evolved in the following years getting small alterations by the great design teams of each WordCamp.
The new logo is an evolution and homage to the old logo that is loved by the WordPress Community, keeping the dotted european map of the original logo.
Lucijan Blagonic is the designer of the new logo, front-end designer from Zagreb and part of this year’s design team.
Our design team wanted to create a new brand identity for WordCamp Europe, with a clear focus on the location of where the event is at. Each year the visual focus area will change based on its location. The look and feel of the logo will always be unique for the selected host city through the distinct location focus, the color scheme and typeface. The logo mark will however be universally the same and highly recognizable to create brand awareness.
To make it easier for future host cities the team will develop a logo generator to create and export the logo mark each year.
We love it! Do you?

It was during the inaugural WordCamp Europe that I first met Rian. It was my first WordCamp ever, as for many others. I met Rian on Contributors Day in the accessibility track, which was also my first contact with how WordPress faces accessibility. Yes, I was aware of various accessibility issues and how people with disabilities use the web, but that was the point, that first Contributors day of mine, when I realised how important this work is.
Since then I followed Rian and the efforts of the entire WordPress accessibility team. Their job is the important one of not only improving accessibility in our WordPress world but building awareness for it too. They work hard every day to make WordPress, its plugins and themes accessible to everyone, yet, we can be unaware of that. This is a story about WordPress and its accessibility team.

We are doing things a little different this year, as we are announcing an official call for photographers.
In the previous years we recruited photographers from the volunteers pool. This year we decided to up the game and make a separate application available for photographers who want to document what will be the largest WordPress conference to date. Continue reading Call for Photographers
It may have slipped by unnoticed, but last week we started selling the very final batch of tickets.
At the end of the last WordCamp Europe in Vienna, when we announced Paris as the next host city, we released the first batch of 2000 tickets. That first batch sold out at the end of January 2017 and we decided to release the second batch immediately after, along with 300 microsponsor tickets.
With over 2200 tickets already sold or reserved (for our sponsors, speakers, and volunteers), WordCamp Europe 2017 will be the biggest WordCamp to date.
Keep in mind that there won’t be any more tickets after this release, except reserved tickets that won’t get collected. Continue reading Final batch of tickets now on sale
