Hi Aleksandar, Loic, all!

Even though Aleksandar completed his contract work

as shown at
he kindly agreed to discuss on this list about your request. 

I'll let him speak for himself now :-)

Welcome Aleksandar.

Yes, a very warm welcome from my side as well - welcome to LibreOffice!

Before I start, I'd like to thank you for providing the BSA artwork and
having the patience to listen to our questions and comments concerning
the branding stuff. Especially, since we finally need to put everything
in one place ... :-)

Since Loic CCed the Design Mailing list, let's shed a bit light on that.
The LibreOffice Design team consists of volunteers who work on User
Experience (e.g. Usability) and Visual Design topics. Personally, I'm
more the "interaction design" guy ... so your support was highly
appreciated (thanks to Loic for organizing that).

If you want to get in touch with us, here is the still "drafty" Design
Team wiki page - there you'll also find information for subscribing to
our mailing list (if you like):

That's all from my side ...

Rationale: Bugs aren't funny, but for our website it would help to have
a visual anchor that tells the user "bug this way, please". Furthermore,
a hiqh quality graphic lets us appear more professional ... although it
is still the same product (note: users tend to be more forgiving, if the
product - the BSA - is a pleasure to use)

Request: Create an graphic that can be used to refer to "bug reporting"
for a) in the product LibreOffice, b) the bug submitting assistant, c)
the feedback selection website. If the detail level is "mid" and the
file type vector (SVG), then we can adapt and tweak it afterwards.

Visual Design Hints:
      * Primary: Consider the Tango Desktop Icons styleguides
      * Secondary: Consider the LibreOffice branding guidelines

Proposal: I don't have any proposal for a metaphor ... :-\

      * If I remember correctly, Ubuntu uses a black exclamation mark on
        an orange "explosion" callout sign.
      * Bugzilla uses/used:
      * I once created a "cracked note" to symbolize the work in
        progress when we've worked on the Writer comments feature:
