Hi Marc,

While its great that there is now a discussion about re-updating the
website, it does not address Tim's request to look at the pamphlet.

Hm, I did try to give feedback and concrete improvement suggestions
... especially on all the (imho needless) redundancies in the
brochure. But these don't seem to have been removed.
Also, if you've started using the half-circle, just continue, but
please, update either the colours of the logo or the colours of the
text to match the other.

And don't put two logos atop each other (as I said, there is a theme
of redundancy, there is), especially not if they are totally
differently coloured.

We'll look into these and post a newer version soon.

So, as sad as I think that consultation could have been better all round,
IMO, the half-circle design should stay for LibreOffice v.4.0 and we could
all start working towards a more concerted effort of branding the next
LibreOffice v.5.0 banner.

5.0? Should TDF continue to churn out dot-x releases at the current
rate, and should we get to somewhere like .8, that would be 4 years!
While that surely is enough time to update all branding, it might be a
bit too long before we decide one way or another.


Sorry, 5.0 was just a number I picked at random.

The pamphlets at this point are only to promote LibreOffice v.4.0. As far as doing a re-make of the design, then we should all, marketing-design-website-docs, cooperate so that the overall look and feel is more fluid. Unfortunately, the docs are being published on Lulu, the website is published, so we (marketing and design) are the trailing end of all of this process. Matching up the look and feel of what is being used at present is the only common sense thing to do.

Looking at the release plan[1], IMO, we could perhaps re-tool for maybe 4.2 at the earliest, but I doubt we will have all of the website theme design sorted out by then. I would suggest to perhaps hold off till 4.3 at the earliest (it is not on the release plan yet).

Tim or I will post an updated pamphlet here to check as soon as we have updated it.
