Hi Nik,

I would love to be involved but unfortunately I still feel that I don't
fully understand what is desired in the motif (what is the end
deliverable).  Of course, design is not my main background (mechanical
engineering is) so hopefully once design proposals go up I can contribute.
I look forward to seeing motif's!

Hi Design!

2 more days to go until the "brainstorming" of motif ideas is over and we
begin design proposals (on Monday).
Head over to this page for more information;

Hi Bernhard, hi Nik, all!

I'd like to second Bernhard's "Thank you!", since you take care of this

No problem, but time is running out for me unfortunately,
one of you guys may have to take over before the "task" is complete =(

What we should add to the motif page are the examples used already:

- the single triangle (like the bullet points on the website)
- the grouped fading triangles in the left upper and right lower corner
 (from the start center)
- Paulo's idea of five colored triangles sticked together in a vertical
 (on his light banners in the donate button)
- outer border with rounded corners and cut-off right upper corner
  (don't know if this really qualifys as motif, but it has an impact on
   general visual impression)
 ... any others?

Hi Bernhard and Christoph,
I've added your respective comments on the motif page and listed the
"previous attempts" list Bernhard summarised above (but haven't linked any
because I'm short on time).

 Thanks for the nice collection - "close to motif" had been used for the
presentation template. The outline of the triangles in the
background ...

There is one item which is even less a motiv, but repeated throughout
many of the graphics for the software: a non-symmetrical circular color
gradient, and some linear gradients in the "header" and "footer". An
early version:

I'm glad to include these on the page, but we should expect that these
previous elements will have no significant bearing on the Motif
I don't like carrying-over elements just because they have been used, I
think it would be better to craft new elements from scratch with clear
purpose+intentions+context from the beginning.


 Looking forward to some sexy motif proposals real soon crew!
