Re: DNA theme for new FC6 browser splash page



Hi Máirín, good idea, try it.

I proposed the idea of *stamp* because I think that it's easy way to embed FEDORA trade mark as is to graphics design....

So I'm not really sure how much leeway we have with the logo guidelines
at all. Since it's still intellectually the property of Red Hat and by
using it we are bound to the guidelines we agreed to when we received
the files, we really can't change the guidelines.

I know that the logo really has terrible contrast when against say a 50%
grey background, but I think all we can do is make the background
darker, try dark gradient effects, etc.

What I can do is try to find the correct person at Red Hat to whom we
can send a proposal explaining the weaknesses of the guidelines and how
we'd like to change the guidelines. What do you think about trying that?
