Sorry for the top posting...
Hmm, colored shadows, under GNOME desktop style icon renderings... that might be neat. But my
thought was a bit simpler and to just place the icons onto a square colored--subdued-- tile to
match colors of the LibreOffice icon scheme.
I've posted up a mock-up with a 300px tile to hold the nominal 256px "thumbnails" stored with our
ODF documents. The tile could be colored, or could be transparent and only for spacing (giving more
the effect that GNOME Desktop gets).
Also cobbled together and used a set of 256px colored/labeled by document type icons for non-ODF
types. They're big, but done this way it is simpler to get completed.
Sorry for not getting it posted up sooner, busy week at work. Lost time hunting for the Vegur-plain
sans font family to do the icons, would probably rework with M+ P1 family if the idea for document
type icons gets approval.
Not sure I'll be joining the chat in the AM, just a tad early at 6:00 here in San Antonio Texas..

We agreed on the IRC chat  that it'd be best if we kept thumbnails, but
used some form of color coding or possibly badging to differentiate them by
If you have an idea of what that could look like, please propose it at
P.S. I know someone proposed colored shadows, but I can't find the mockup.
Please post it on the wiki.
