Hi Adolfo, *,

(Look, I have a reason to call our branding “weak”: TDF decided to
unilaterally put there a meaningless, in-your-face number “5”, and
throw away our brand colors, without consulting designers who
submitted designs.)

Why do you mean that we throw away our brand colors? We throw away a *non* branding color. I want to remember: This "olive" was the biggiest branding weakness (and the greatest design desaster) we ever did. (And it was a great personal satisfaction for me to delete it from branding wiki page.)

You are right: It was a mistake to not ask the design team but it was necessary because of lack of time. But this is an other problem. Let me say: the design team for VI wasn't able to organize it in that fast time. Kendy was overswamped by UX and other work and we have no other design team lead for VI (as we don't have anyone who really makes VI).

We should do it better organized for V6.

If we’re to keep an obsolete UI paradign such as the splash screen, it
should at least be minimal, as Mirek suggested years ago [1]


What shall I see here?

When we talk about the splash screen, we should not only talk about design but also about marketing: To have the "5" is a big marketing strategy against others who are in 4.x. To symbolize that is very important. We should show it on every edge. And so I'm glad that not only designers but Charles and Italo as marketing team have a look at this thread.

I will vote for a configuration switch as mentioned above in the thread.
