Hullo Design!

After taking into consideration some concerns raised by Christoph and Ivan here, I'll be reviewing the schedule for the Design motif task, most probably to extend to the middle of next month (March).
I'll post an updated schedule and update the wiki page tomorrow;

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 task;
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?*
I think we should definitely go for something abstract, as you
sugested. The LibO/TDF logo is the (mostly blank) page, and this
conveys possibility: the page is a neutral space to project specific
ideas onto. Abstract artwork would allow us to show something more
tangible than a blank sheet, but at the same time it would involve a
deal of projection. Of course, my description of abstract artwork here
is pretty abstract in itself; more specifically, I'd suggest using
light colors (for subtleness, using all application colors if
tastefully possible) and something to do with the processes associated
with documents and paper: typography, printing, layout/formatting,
binding, etc.

Thanks for your efforts, Nik! I really look forward to seeing this
progress (and, time permitting, playing a small part).
