Hi all,

As a first personal concept for 4.0 I made a new line of
buttons/documentation covers:

Maybe this can be part of the strategy and for marketing for 4.0.

The first "official" banner was used for the Test Marathon 4.0:

We can put this slogan to LibreOffice 4.0 (Start Center, About, etc.),
so "Get involved!" will be part of LibO 4.0. I want to make some
proposals for this, but lack of time bar me from doing it. Maybe next
weekend if there is some interest.


"Get Involved" banners: nice! I think this would nicely fit on our webpages as you suggest. I love the colors.


T-Shirts: Not sure about the T-shirts. I don't think our iconic "page" is well-known enough yet. It should be accompanied with the TDF/Logo maybe on the back of the T-shirt. People would not immediately know the significance of the LO page icon ... at least not yet.


Covers: We should consult with the docs people (Jean - lead). The use of colors and fonts have a lot to do about readability. I am not sure about just the "Get Involved!". Would it be better to add a ""; sub-line? Or would that make the banner too "busy"? Putting a "Get Involved" banner with no discernible way of a reader to find the place to "Get Involved" may defeat the purpose of the message.

Actually, now that I look at it, would there be a way of creating a LO page icon with a faded-out QR as the background? I wonder how that would look? Then, perhaps, a website sub-line would not be necessary. I wonder how much of a faded QR we could apply before it became unusable.


IMO, when we (marketing team) work on the branding of LO in marketing materials, our first objectives should be to heighten brand recognition of both the TDF/LO logo and the LO page icon. These are assets that can easily be included in all of marketing materials.

Once both of these are well established, in particular the LO page logo, then we could use them on their own as they would then be clearly recognizable by the general public.
