This is a public call for design proposal for branding and design art work for the next version of LibreOffice, 5.0. As with the previous calls for designs, the author of the winning proposal will get a T-shirt :-)
We need at least 3 designs. The sizes described below are the sizes of the current graphics, but it is not necessary to be 100% same. The 'About' graphics can be essentially the same as 'Start Center' graphics, but does not have to.
- Splash screen graphics, with space for the progress bar: 551x211 pixels
- Start Center background graphics: 195x173 pixels
- About dialog background graphics: 486x500 pixels
Additionally, it is possible to include a graphics that would be a background for menus / toolbars; that needs to be 4000x300 pixels wide.
The graphics should preferably be in SVG, so that it can be finalized / tweaked for inclusion should that be necessary.
To be considered for inclusion, the images must meet the following conditions:
- They are original works, or derived from existing LibreOffice branding.
- They are licensed under Creative Commons (CC0).
- They cohere with the LibreOffice Branding Guidelines:
You can submit any amount of submissions you want - the more the merrier :-)
Deadline for the inclusion to 5.0 is 17th May 2015, so that the winning graphics can be included into Beta1. Please note that your contribution does not have to be included 'as-is', but may be tweaked to fit better the overall LibreOffice design, or to overcome some technical limitations.
Winning proposal will be selected jointly by the Design and Marketing teams.
Out of scope
Complete redesigns, overall layout of the start center, additional UI widgets, etc. are out of scope - we are really interested only in the updated graphics/pictures.
