Re: [libreoffice-marketing] New header image for social media channels


I agree with Charles.

The header image with the icons is clean and professional (nice work!) but the image should convey the message - even without words. As for the message itself, we seem to have overlooked the fact the LO6 is compatible, flexible, and a viable alternative to other closed, propriety  products.

Hello everyone,

Simple messages are indeed what actually works.

However in this instance I am not sure that reusing the icons of the suite is going to send any message. We are only impoverishing our branding elements with icons that everybody has already seen and that may be subject to change at some later release. Also, perhaps even more simply: what message are we trying to send here? It may be simpler than the previous one but I am not sure I'm getting it...

Best,

Charles.

I like both of these. I would encourage others to consider that:

- This is just the header image. It does not need to include a
comprehensive message house
- Earnest messages can appear ingenuous to newcomers. Simple wins.

Personally I would go with either of these as is for now and see how
things
go.

Hello,

Currently the header image for our Twitter and Facebook pages looks
like
this:

Recently, Andreas Kainz from the design community updated the icons
for
the various components of LibreOffice, as shown here:

content/uploads/sites/2/2018/08/WhatsNewFig4a.png

So based on them, I've created a new header image, which also adds a
bit
of information about the software using our familiar tagline, and
encourages people to get involved:

What do you think? We could also translate it for social media on
native
language projects...
