[libreoffice-marketing] Re: LibreOffice Mascot


Since today is world penguin day [1] some journals reported about Tux,
which is a good reminder to keep our discussion boiling with the
reference how Linux found its mascot [2]. To summarize the discussion
I created a pad [3]. Anything to add?

> additional to the unique branding of LibreOffice today, we want to introduce an alternative to TDF's trademarked logo/icon elements that can be used by the community with minimal restrictions: a mascot.

> The idea is similar to "Duke" from Java (https://kenai.com/projects/duke/pages/Home), SuSE's chameleon "Geeko", Mozilla has a lizard/godzilla/tyrannosaurus, Linux' "Tux" is famous, KDE is going with the dragon "Konqi" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konqi) and Krita has "Kiki" (https://krita.org/en/kiki/).

> The first step would be to find some metaphors that enables designs to be creative. Something like Freedom, Documents, Openness etc. Ideas for the realization are of course also welcome. The mascot could be an animal like a (grumpy old) cat to refer to the seven lives of LibreOffice or something more symbolic.

> Based on your input we would later start the actual design task, and ideally have a few options where the community can choose the best.
