That's great to hear, I'd really love to see a proposal from you if you
get the time? =)
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.
I know you're pressed for time, so don't feel obligated though.
Research is a monster that never sleeps, right? =)
Generally, motifs don't have to be intuitive or associative graphical
links to the topic like, say, icons or a logo.
Sometimes they are, but in many cases, they are meant to be more
abstract, so that the meaning isn't necessarily embedded without some
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!
For example, the Bahamas motif (the shapes);
doesn't make you instantly think of Bahamas islands right? (the logo
might, but not the motif) ...
But due to consistent-use, prolonged-exposure and clever-campaigning,
they have become associated with the islands.
So abstract is not a problem =)
Just now some ideas are coming to my mind and if I'd have time tonight I'll
make some proposals based on yours.
That would be GREAT!
I've posted a note suggesting a short extension to allow for more
proposals, like yours, to be added! =)
I'm hoping *Jaron* picks up on this hint too =) and our benevolent
leader *Bernhard* hasn't had a chance to weigh-in on the issue and I'd
really like his input (visual and verbal) too.
So let me know what you think about the deadline-discussion.
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
