Hi Paulo, all

Hi! My name is Paulo José, 20. I'm a Brazilian Computer Science
student and I've been an art lover along all my life.


And now I'm very excitet to be here in this maillist, thanks to
Berhnard Dippold and Christoph Noack that helped me very much and
invited me to join the Design Team. Thank you very much guys!

We're looking forward to working with you! Welcome here on the list!

[...] I think this two projects gave me some practical and theorical
- although very initial - knowledge about UI design. And by my whole
life I worked (as amateur) with graphical programs like Photoshop,
Gimp, Inkscape and Blender.

Not everybody here has the possibility to work with Photoshop, so we try to rely mainly on tools like Inkscape and GIMP.

As we want to work collaboratively and exchange our source files for iterational improvements, SVG is our most preferred file format and we upload our source files to the wiki. Using it's versioning facility we can stay up-to-date with the development by others while keeping the same URL.

I don't know if you already thought of licensing your work.
We're part of an open source community and therefore we recommend to provide our graphical contributions under a open source license too.

To ease your work you don't need to describe the license you want and provide a link to it when you upload any file to the wiki. At the bottom of the upload page you can choose among different license templates to be added to your contribution.

For artwork and design drafts that might become a basis for inclusion in the LibreOffice source code (like the icons we're working on at the moment) we recommend to use the triple license CC by-sa, LGPL 3+ and MPL 1.1.

Other artwork can be licensed under CC by-sa only (or any other license you choose), but my personal position is, that this triple license seems to cover all probable use-cases of my work, so I use it for any of my contributions.

Just be aware that you can't change the license of any artwork you're going to improve or work on.

Sorry, if this sounds confusing, but I thought, it would be reasonable to tell you in advance...

I'm sure we can have a lot of fun and work together on all the upcoming tasks in UX/UI, visual design and branding - don't by shy to comment / criticize any mockups presented here: We strongly believe that collaborative work will lead to even better results than individual contribution.

Welcome again!

Best regards
