I like and support this work item as well.  I can see how this work would

> 1. Explain what you are trying to do using no jargon or acronyms.
> We are trying to make it possible for issuers to express how they want

> While it's ultimately the choice of the individual on how they want

> useful for the issuer to provide a selection of choices to pick from.
> 2. How is it done today, and what are the limits of the current practice?
> At present, issuer websites, digital wallets, or verifier websites
> decide how VCs are displayed to an individual and it is not possible
> to have a consistent visual rendering of the VC across each site/app.
> 3. What is new in your approach and why do you think it will be successful?
> While not novel, merely providing a mechanism for the issuer to
> express their rendering preferences, such as an image or an SVG file

> having at least one uniform method of rendering a VC across multiple
> sites and apps.
> 4. How are you involving participants from multiple skill sets and global
> locations in this work item? (Skill sets: technical, design, product,
> marketing, anthropological, and UX. Global locations: the Americas, APAC,
> Europe, Middle East.)
