Did I make an "ooops" and not get the spacing correct for the icon in
the green block?

* panel 3 -- front page: I am not sure I like this design. From a
marketing point of view, IMO, the white at the top of the panel,
gives the impression that someone forgot to add some text, I don't
think we are too concerned with the panel 3 focusing on the OS's as
this is what we actually want to do ... we want people who have
picked up our brochure to realize that we are on these 3 OS's (and
eventually Android and possibly more).
Sounds reasonable. You got -1 for this proposal from me as well :)
* frames ... great! I love the fact that the green bar is now tied in
with the frame. This will cause fewer problems with community teams.
* LibreOffice white logo in the green bar, yes, great the spacing is
I have tested the font and line spacing with an older version of this
brochure design style. I have tried adding and removing line spacing.
I have tried "normal" and "narrow/condensed" fonts. To get the most out
of the panel's "space", I think a narrow or condensed font would look
good. Yet, it will depend on the font[s] used. Also, whatever font you
use, it would be better if you use a freely downloadable font that
anyone could have access to. For me, when I get a good brochure with
the content filled in, I would want it to be placed online for any other
marketing person/group to take it and modify it to their needs. If
people choose fonts that are not free or hard to find, then it may be a
big issue for some people. I have the full Adobe font library from
2000[?]. I know most home/office users would not have access to those
fonts, so I would never use them for this type of project.
I have no objections on using single line spacing. BTW, you forgot
from the list that greater linespacing eats up a lot of space and we
loose some valuable room for text.
* I printed up a sample of the included text in your example that you
set at 120%. I am not sure that I agree with this spacing. It makes
the brochure look unconventional and too metric. IMO, if we are to
"tweak" anything, we should try to tweak the size of the font to make
it more readable. We have gone through this exercise before with
sample text and IMO this should be left to the decision of the
marketing team who will be creating the text and basing it on their
own impression of readability and how it fits into the brochure --
IMO, the spacing is more of a marketing decision and less of design
decision. The marketing team will be creating content for about 15
types of brochure and they will all have different content, but use
the same community template design.
I alway test out the design[s] with sample content. That way I can see
if the whole design works together. But, yes, we need to get the
brochure template done so people can start working on the editing of the
content. Then we would have a brochure that we could use for our next
"scheduled" presentation [for me that is coming up fast].
** Don't forget, this thread is all about creating a community
template without any text.
Never forgot it. Just without text we cannot actually see what we are
I hope to be around to chime in on next designs as well.
