I'm a freelance designer and a core member of the Ubuntu Artwork Team.

Just checking in with my 1st post to this list. The Ubuntu Artwork Team was
approached by David Nelson with a follow-up by Christoph Noack to assist
with artwork and artistic design.

We manage our effort as tasks and we will need guidance from this team on
the tasks we accept.

So far the Ubuntu Artwork Team has been about design and artwork for
Ubuntu and Ubuntu-specific projects. While I can only encourage our
members to work in other FLOSS projects, too, I have my doubts that our
team is the right forum. Or that we should be represented as a unit
here. Especially now, when we are trying to reorganize after a period of
very low productivity.

Although this is very granular, my suggestion is to submit a request to our
mailing for a specific item you are looking to create. From the request I
will create a specification which acts like a "blueprint". We will also need
to box in effort by setting milestones and/or due dates. :-)

Applying the agile principle of "define - don't assign" and a completed spec
we will solicit submissions for your consideration. As the owner of the
request this team or a duly selected representative will select the
successful candidate.

I think such requests and specifications should be managed inside the
LibreOffice project.

(The concept of a project-neutral online platform for managing assets,
requests for artwork/design, structured design processes ... has been
floating around and discussed at UDS a little bit.)
