Hi Team,

I want to produce pins and I want also to produce a "set of pins"
like
http://palmersproducts.net/catalog/images/symbol_lapels%20copy.gif
But I want to have the foundations together with the logo and now I'm
wondering and also asking who can design or create me the draft for
producing.

In detail I want to have

Logo + letters "first"
Logo + letters "freedom"
Logo + letters "first"
Logo + letters "friends"

and if possible in the correct Fedora font :-)
All should be in a vector scalable graphics which can be used for other
ideas also; but I'm sure you know what to do.

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

What do you think about this as a base style to go with for the various
banners/splashes for F11?

http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/art/f11/mockups/style/fedora-greek-style_mockup.png

even plainer:

http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/art/f11/mockups/style/fedora-greek-style_mockup_2.png

Is it too over-the-top Greek? I was trying to go for a subtle and contemporary
interpretation of a classic Greek motif.

These two look great. Although, wouldn't it be better to call it
kde-splash (since, unlike the gnome one, it is enabled by default)? I am
unsure which would be better though, perhaps I'm slightly more inclined
towards the one with the 'fedora' word, rather than the logo. But come
to think of it, would it be desirable/worth a try to promote the four
foundations there - i.e. putting there the four F's logo? I think it
might fit well within the design.

And about the banners - they seem over too simple to me, there're lots
of "deaf" space there (just simple gradient and nothing more taking
up a
lot of space). Starting with the second one and add some more details
(not sure though, what would fit there) to the currently plain blue
background might help. Also, what are these banners for? IIRC in
anaconda these are "shorter" and thus the deaf spots would be reduced
to
practically nil.

Overal I think the way you've chosen is a good one :)

Thanks for the feedback! :)

We'll be doing a gnome splash either way. This is meant to just be a quick
example of one of the many splashes we do just to see an application of the
style idea. The KDE splash will necessitate a slightly different design because
of the particulars of how those are done.

Yeh, I'm not sure either but I'm leaning more towards the logotype
alone as well.

Mixing the four f's into the theme doesn't strike me as being
particularly appropriate. Having an alternate theme that uses the four F's
would be cool though. I think Clint is working on something like that. (If
you're reading, do you have more details Clint?)

They aren't actual banners, they are just design mockups to show a
treatment of a Greek motif along with the Fedora logo and colors. Just to kind
of give the feel...

Cool :)

I do like. Simple yet styled. I made a plymouth splash based on it. There is a
video[1] and the source for anyone who wants to have a go at running it.
Currently we have spinfinity as the default splash for F11. Do we want to go
with a theme specific splash or stick with a generic one?
