Re: Fedora-art-list Digest, Vol 26, Issue 30

I would like to introduce myself.
My nickname is Hawk/hawkskater. My real name is Vincent Rappa. I am from Connecticut, U.S.A. I am 16 years old, but have about 2 years worth of linux experience, 5 years of mac experience and about 6-7 years of windows experience. I currently have 4 computers, 2 running mac os x leopard, 1 running xp, and 1 running ubuntu and fedora. I joined the fedora art group because i love making themes and wallpapers for ubuntu, and decided to contribute to fedora as well. I am a big linux fan, I can't wait for the day that linux is the number 1 operating system in the world. I want to make fedora and all other linux distros, look as visually pleasing as possible without over blotting the os, like an os that will remain unnamed, (hint. Starts with a v ends in a ista). I hope i can make a meaningful contribution to fedora and the rest of the linux world. Vincent Rappa

Hang around, have a look at of our requests queue

Hey peeps,

So here's an update to keep you all in the loop:

- We're going to need 4 sign designs for FUDcon:
-- 1 large quote sign, 44x56 inches (quotes below)
-- 3 conference room signs, 22x28 inches:
--- FUDCon Boston 2008 logo + Text: "Hackfest"
--- FUDCon Boston 2008 logo + Text: "Presentations / Hackfest"
--- FUDCon Boston 2008 logo + Text: "Lounge"

The file/format requirements are as follows:
- Full quarter inch bleed
- CMYK color (need scribus!)
- EPS (need scribus!)

My workflow is probably going to be to do NO ALPHA GRADIENT artwork in
Inkscape (Scribus doesn't like alpha gradients :-p), and keep the text
and fills/gradients for the BG in Scribus. Because our deadline is tight
on this I'm starting work NOW; I'll be in #fedora-art and likely will be
posting works in progress there so if you're interested in helping out
you're welcome to join in. :)
