for everybody using these colors for her/his artwork and design.

I have uploaded a second (high resolution) draft showing a possible
color scheme [1]. The current LibreOffice green is the same. My
suggestion is to have one 'off' color for each set to add some flavor.
So, for green, there's lime, for blue it's something light headed
toward aqua, for maroon it's pink... whether it works or not is for
you all to decide :)

Well, it seems that I accidentally skipped this paragraph for the first
time. Then I'd like to say "sorry" for the weird questions last time :-\

However, I picked your file and made up a slightly different version of
the branding colors. Less vivid (a.k.a. "acid" *g*) ... so please have a
look at:

I know that it is still a bit conservative (without your "off" colors
which might be re-added), but might that work? I would like to finalize
this discussion (as a rather agreed branding color version 1.0) before
we release the presentation template ... soon :-)

Any other opinions, agreement, disagreement, comments, ... ?


I'll just add this that I posted to the discuss list.  Sorry, everything on so 
few lists is getting harder to keep track of
As a general comment, I am impressed as hell with the logo and the Docu
 bug, it's simple, strong, indicative, unique and instantly recognisable. 
 If I had one criticism is that the Docu bug would be better as a grey
 rather than black.  The black on white background is a little harsh.  I
 note that this has been obvious to the creators as well because the Docu
 bug always seems to be displayed on light grey BG which diffuses  that
 harshness.  A CMYK value of around looks good and from a visual
 marketing POV has a more sophisticated reliable and modern feel. 

A proposal here

"Silver" and Green would be a good combination in the logo imho.  In 
combination these invoke trustworthiness, efficiency and reliability.  The 
lighter green also gives the brand freshness.
