Hi Thomas,

I'll CC the Design Team to make them aware of the issue ...

I try to create some marketing-material for LibO, unfortunatly I have
some mismatch in colors:

Following the branding guidlines the main color for "Libre" is "Green
1", Hex 18A303, RGB 24 163 3, CMYK 85 0 98 36
When I use the cmyk values (for printing), color seems to be really
"darker" then the LibO Color (as seen in Web).

Hhm, when I made up the values, I relied on what Inkscape provides - no
there is no color space specific calculation of the CMYK values (to be
honest, it is a very simple transformation).

Concerning the printing, do you print that on a "consumer grade" printer
- then I can check as well ...

I am using Adobe CS4 - Illustrator.
When I try to open the svg-logo-file, I got an error.
When I open the png file, I can pick up the color of the "Libre" word:
Hex 25A22D, RGB 37 162 45, CMYK 79,0,100,0

Sorry for the inconvenience, did anybody else consider this problem (I
know that some of you do also use AI). The source can be found here:

Well, this values are really different!

When I "pick" the colors, everything is fine (Hex / RBG value in Gnome).
Do you use a color calibrated display for that - sometimes that alters
the color values picked "on" screen?

Another question - if I look at the logo, the distances between TDF
Symbol and LibreOffice text seems to be different. Did you use the
version from the branding wiki page?

Thomas, thanks for your work!
