Re: [libreoffice-design] Rebranding result


Well. This mail is a bit difficult. I took a look at the design. It IS a non standard logo on a white background.
There are two major issues.
* the logo is NOT the standard logo. You're using an old one from 2010.
* I don't have much to say for the startscreen, but honestly... the splashscreen is something I could have done myself and I'm a profound idiot when it comes to design. This looks bad, unfinished, and I obviously do not have the documented rationale for your choice, but it's a bit like any other choice would have been better.

I am very worried about this choice (again, I'm constraining my comment to the splashscreen), I'm worried for our image, I'm worried for the impression millions of people are going to get every time they'll start LibreOffice.

I would like to thank you all for your contributions, I know it's not easy and we all have lives outside here, but somebody must have gotten really tired or something.

I don't even want to suggest what to do at this point, what process to follow, I don't want to choose for the team as it would be disrepectful (and this mail is disrespectful enough already) but I can't shut up on that one. Please reconsider or do something. It's terrible.

Thanks,

Charles.

Hello Mirek,

Cool. Do you have a pointer to the winner's design? All I saw was a
non standard logo on a white background....

Best,

Charles.

I'm sure you're all wondering what branding proposal was chosen.
We went for Maxim Darák's proposal, with Mateus Machado Luna coming in
a
close second.
Lots of thanks for everyone who participated! :)
