Hello Marc,

So, to give the impression of cooperation of all these groups
(website, docs, new-webdesigners, marketing/design), I would
propose we adopt the same half-circle for our header on all panels
with perhaps as the exception the 1st panel. We then need to
discuss the font for the pamphlet, as well as the background
colour for the panels (I say this as you seem to have included a
grey-ish colour to the background). Therefore these are the
elements that we would work/suggest:

* designed header -- half-circle
* 1st panel design
* font
* panel background color

I added the background color to match that of the website's
Discover page (as with the font and colors). I would add font

How does this sound. This would give us an agreed-to template for
the marketing team to work with. The marketing team could then
fill the panels with the information they wish to add.

Sounds good.

The choice we would then have to make is that of font ... I am not
sure but who has suggested this but is the website font "Open Sans

Yes. Open Sans Condensed for the front page and Open Sans Condensed
Light for the Discover page. I think it's good unless readability
is an issue.

How does this look as a template design for our marketing needs?

I thought the front page stood out less than the other pages, so I
tried using a dark background. Also I think we need to use the full
logo on the front page so I did that as well. The changes are in
the newest version

Looks good! :-)

We would have to also supply a link to download Open Sans so that we
can all follow the template; Tim used the link found on the
"PhotoShop RoadMap site" to download the font[1] -- it's really a
link to FontSquirrel website

--> font family:
--> font-face kit:

I also wonder if the font is good to use for all native language
groups. Any ideas on this? Would our Arabic/Asian ... nl members be
able to use the font?

Any other comments from the Design Team members? We should all be OK 
with this. We will use this template for LibreOffice v.4.0.x until
the website changes and then rework the template when needed. If you
are wondering why we are doing this, read the full thread.

Looks good to me, and unless anyone vehemently opposes it we should
stick to this design, at least for the 4.0.x communication.
