Hi everyone!

I am Chris, and live within the beautiful island of Puerto Rico! My personal advice to this project is to market to Microsoft and Apple's feeble footing, and topple the Big Data giants at their knees- with delicate, but deliberate slicing thrusts of passionate programming activism!  In short: get the Libre Office, and Free Software Foundation products out to people who actually need these products the most- the relatively poor, and absolute poverty areas of the international arenas.  IT is at its core meant for all users- like good products of any nature.  My fastidious loathing of the typical IT quasi egomaniac fuddling with C compilers and thinks (s)he rocks it beyond the hypervisor potential.  I face palm at these twerps.  It is the pizza pounding, Rick & Morty bingeing, hipster Carnegie Mellon who cannot look up the phrase / now word "Dipshit" in the Oxford Dictionary that enrage me the most.  These conflated, yes, DS CS pseudo savants are a complete disgrace to the Free Software Foundation, Richard Stallman, ( yes and lump Linus Torvalds), and the precious work of numerous kernel programmers.  Literally we have charlatans as champions in today's world, fresh off some epic MOBA quest.  When will people be able to code in Assembly, or even create OS kernel with workstation or device communal OS interfacing, integrity, and interactive mutation correcting evolving code- with workstation/device community cohesion from adapting code with evolutionary OS proximity.

In short.  Just market the Free software Foundation better, to chip away at Microsoft, and Apple products- or even Alphabet inc/Google products.  Next find time to code in Assembly.  Thanks.

The aim should, I think, be to come up with a logo that is both distinctive and simple. The more 
lines and shapes included in a logo the longer it takes to assimilate in the brain, and become 
intrinsically linked to a brand or product. The inclusion of alphanumerics, even in a distinctive 
font, can lead to ambiguity and don't help with internationalisation. Think of the really 
successful logos - they are all very simple - the 4 coloured squares of Microsoft or the 4 
interlinked circles of Audi. Compare them, at the other end of the spectrum, with the logos for 
Peugeot and Vauxhall cars - both of which need to be studied to even work out what it is you are 
looking at.

Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] Visual Identity of LibreOffice Ecosystem

We have started brainstorming about the development of a visual identity
for the LibreOffice Ecosystem, to help the recognition of companies and
individuals developing products based on the LibreOffice Technology or
doing business around LibreOffice.

We would like to get community members' opinions about this idea. Having
a visual identity would have a positive effect, as it would help
recognizing LibreOffice Ecosystem members, and would help TDF marketing
in supporting the annoucements under a single umbrella.

We are open to other opinions, and before launching a contest - based on
the experience of the anniversary visual - for the development of a logo
we would like to understand if the community feels it appropriate to
have such a visual identity (based on the logo).

Discussion is open on this list until April 20, in order to be able to
provide a summary for the following BoD meeting on April 23.

Thanks, Italo
