Hi Florian, hi Bernhard, all!

Although I'm still enjoying my vacation (*G*), the current topics are
far too important to be missed ... so I'd like to offer one additional
idea concerning the banner. Thanks to all who already worked on the
proposals - so it's easy to iterate towards another one :-)

Just updated the wiki file with 600px wide banner:

I like your approach! We need to make it more eye-catching, as it looks
like an element of the page, but the basic approach: +1

I want it to look like an element of the page - that's what I think is important, if we want to keep an eye on all our target groups.

A banner just painted over an area of the page doesn't look professional IMHO - as we not only want to involve individuals, but business people, decision makers in companies and others able to donate larger sums, I'd like to address them too.

       * Maximizing the space for the banner without touching the current
         LibreOffice logo on the website
       * Using "intensive" colors based on "Libre Yellow", and used a
         rather "noisy" design that drives away attention from the rest
         of the page :-)
       * Instead of a slogan, I decided to re-use our TDF team mission

Working space incl. source file (SVG):

I don't know whether this might work, but at least it is another
proposal ... any thoughts on that?

Sorry, but I don't really like it :-(

It's not only noisy, it contains a kind of negative, displeasing color tone for me. It doesn't attract the interest, but distracts it from the rest of the page.

And with the word cloud in the background it's quite turbulent too.

As you didn't include a border to the banner, it becomes part of the background, while the impression of a more prominent banner might draw more attention...

But this is only my personal perception, if I'm the only one, please go ahead!

I want to share another idea:

A banner that includes the barometer and the countdown.

I don't think that these two items should be visible on the fundraising page only.

Adding them to the entire website might lead to more attraction and interest.

Updating my banner proposal at

I included a different color approach (yellow and orange), leading to more visual attraction.

Such a banner could only work, if countdown and barometer are added as different text / image to the website - but I hope this would be possible.

Daily updates of the days left and the sum already reached would be necessary, and while it is probably possible to update the first part automatically, the sum will have to be added manually.

Christian, Matt, all:

Would it be possible to integrate countdown and barometer in the graphic?

Should we go this way or rather follow another approach (Matt, Christoph...)

Best regards
