Yeah, now you've described EXACTLY our research: a monster... Our work
just started like an small work and now we have 100 pages full of hard

[...] That's great to hear, I'd really love to see a proposal from you

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
Well, I did't though about if from this point of view. Actually you're
right and I think I was very restricted by the motif example of
OpenOffice, which is widely recognized and still topic related. But it's
hard to say why it is so; what's came first: the motif popularity
because it's topic related, or it's topic related because the motif
It's true. I think the Bahamas motif make me review my opinion
definitively. You said me to don't worry about obligating myselft to
making a motif proposal by time constraints, but the true is I'm worried
about my understand and capabilities on motif's creation. I don't feel
experience enough on this field to help with actual working proposals.
So I think I'll go on just commenting and giving suggestions. I hope
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 =)
Well, I'm not purposing a motif, but I like the idea of a
"monocolorsable" motif, like Bernhard or Christoph's proposal. It would
be great to see your proposals in a monocolor theme. I actually tried to
play with your Scatter motif with some white borders (creating an
outline over the superposed triangles) , but I can't achieve good results.
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.
