Hi Nik!

Wow, your last proposals are actually great! I still don't feel the "motif"
feeling, but I think all them (specially the 6th) should be officially used
in our work. They have quality enough to this, but still are too general to
make me think on "LibreOffice" when I see them. But I think they are very
promissing and define good approach to our motif!

Just now some ideas are coming to my mind and if I'd have time tonight I'll
make some proposals based on yours.

By the way, I'm very excited to comment on the others motif's proposals.
This page is becoming a place full of good ideas! :-D

Hi Ivan and Design!

Today is the last day for adding motif proposals to the Wiki page;

I've added mine (at the bottom). And a very hasty description because I'm
running short on time.
Mainly, my theme centres on the "collaboration/community" aspect. And some
exploration of the clipped corner.
Most of my shapes occur in "six-sided configurations" to reflect the
writer/calc/base/draw... apps.
Good luck with your own proposals. Remember, they don't have to be perfect,
they just have to be ready enough to be voted on.
We can refine them as a team a little later.

Hopefully we can stick to the proposed timeline and go to a vote end of
this week.
now for some feedback....

So we have ideas and concepts, *It's time to Design!*

  * Pick a concept you'd like to convey and, while adhering to the
    branding, create a first draft of your motif.
  * Upload it to the Wiki page
    ( under the new
    "Motif proposals" section (bottom of page).
  * Add a preview image (jpeg/gif/png) if possible (svg preview is
    quite bad).
  * Explain what you were aiming to do with the Design, or more
    importantly, what it communicates.

I've uploaded a rather quick and simple proposal to the wiki page with
some descriptions and self-critique. I realise that it looks a little
kitschy now (double rainbow all the way across the sky...) but I don't
have the time right now to refine it further (or make a letterhead),

That's cool, I can totally imagine this in a letterhead and a whole bunch
of other formats, especially if used as a narrow strip.
You actually managed to skilfully combine the application colours, which
inspired my own attempt at mastering composition of the application colours.
And you used a TEXTURE really well, something I'd like to see more of,
because texture says so much by impeding so little.

 but the LibO rounded document corners could be brought into play as
well. On that little tangent, I was also wondering what a bokeh-like
effect with the LibO rounded document corners would look like (if it
was done properly)...

If you manage to make a Bokeh motif work, and we complemented it with bokeh
photography, that would make for AMAZING compositions!

 I'm looking forward to seeing what others come up with!


 Thanks for pitching in during your busy-season Ivan.
And I too am looking forward to what gets made by the crew?
Head on over to the Motif page to catch up on what's happened so far;
