Product Artwork (was: Re: [libreoffice-design] Roadmap - More structure, please!)


Hi Ivan, Bernhard, Thorsten!

@ Thorsten: I shamelessly CCed you, so maybe you can answer a question
concerning the LibO 3.3 timeline? If possible, so thanks in advance :-)

Ouch, Bernhard. To be honest, I am kept busy with all the mails: the
website stuff, some requests at the LibreOffice dev lists, collecting
further ideas (not yet published). So I use very small time slots to
progress with the branding.

According Thorsten, there is still enough time to get this implemented
(I checked this in advance, to have an excuse for my laziness) :-)

Thorsten, the question to you - is implementing a set of preliminary
icons possible. Will there be another beta to make sure that everything
works fine? Or should we forget about the idea of different icons (to be
honest, if we could come up with own icons, this would make the LibO
release perfect).

Although we did not judge the visual experience with real people that do
have color vision problems, but Johannes created some simulated versions
of the color palette. Available here:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Color_blindness_issues

In my reply, I asked whether we can come up with "preferred" color
combinations that still work effectively ... No reply yet ;-)

Sounds good :-)

Cheers,
