I'd love to help out where I can. I'll probably come and go from the
conversation, as sometimes it seems the most work here is done when I'm not
at my desk. Lol

My background is actually in architecture, so my notion of motif may be
different than yours, Nik. Please feel free to steer me back on course if I
wander too far from what we should be doing. ;-)

Ideas for motif:
+ Reinforcing the brand through use of color elements, namely green or the
corresponding color for the app.
+ Anchoring content space (cards, brochures, web pages, etc) with the use of
full-bleed color bars on the left or bottom.  For example, create a green
bar at the bottom of every web page and use the same thing for print
+ Develop (or find one we can use) a web icon set with a distinct look that
reinforces the rounded corners of the logo clipped corner triangle. Paper
clips, paper stacks, pencils, and other office-like imagery.
+ Develop other imagery (minor or less-formal logo) that can be used to
represent the project in a less formal manner. Eg. Coke vs. CocaCola, Chevy
vs. Chevrolet, except visually.

Other things are escaping me at the moment, but I'm excited to see other

Hullooooo Design!

You may have seen the other threads but I just wanted to summarise and
We are taking on a challenge of Designing a Motif that can be used in
LibreOffice Design material in a matter of 1 week!

This doesn't take precedence of the need for fund-raising material,
indeed nothing does!
But if you would be interested in contributing ideas/Designs to this
lightning-task, (or "sprint" if you're into your methodologies),
just reply in this thread/on this list.

I've set up a page here to collect thoughts / collate efforts on this
We are in the first step right now;

We have to Design a motif, my question to you is:
*What do you think would make a good motif for LibreOffice?*

a few things to remember;
- The motif has to be subtle (it will be a support element and not the
primary focus)
- The motif has to be general or abstract enough to apply equally to
every Design job

Looking forward to hearing from you all.
Every idea could be a gem and everyone is capable of having ideas.
