Hi Bernhard, all!

I'd like to keep it short, since it's already "tomorrow" for me ;-)

I'd like to see a banner that points external people not only to the 
foundation, but to LibreOffice in general.

Or, also the other way round, people may be attracted because it is
"LibreOffice" and they want to support us.

It should follow our Branding Guidelines, provide the necessary 
information for external people and attract them to follow the link to 
our page.

Christoph's summary in the wiki 
( is a 
great starting point for this task - thank you very much.

If so, as well as
having a large banner, could we also offer a smaller banner and also a
square banner for left or right positioning on a site? A nice variety of
banners would be nice.

What do you think of:

728x90 px

468x60 px

300x250 px

180x150 px

125x125 px

With the different sizes we should probably provide different slogans:

"Join the Challenge! Help Us Funding the Foundation!"

"The Challenge: EUR 50 000 for the Foundation.
Donate now for an independent LibreOffice community."

"The LibreOffice Challenge: EUR 50 000 for the Foundation.
Donate now for an effective, efficient, transparent, and inclusive 

(based on an off-list discussion with Christoph starting with Florian's 
text on the wiki pages)

The banner should contain the LibreOffice logo - I'm not quite sure if 
in this special case the full logo with subline "The Document 
Foundation" would be reasonable, even if the SC prefers external 
references by a logo without that line.

Different to the banner on our website I'd like to see the main color 
green. It's a reference to our community, and most of the other websites 
are not as green based as ours, so it contrasts quite well, I think.

Details in other colors (blue? orange?) could be re-used in an update of 
our internal banner, but this can be done later on.

We can't include the donation meter or the countdown as the banners have 
to be static. But when people click on them, they should be led to a 
"Challenge page", where this information is available in a graphic way.

I'm sorry, that I can't work on this task tonight, but perhaps someone 
else wants to step in?

Well, although some details differ - I started with one of the larger
(externally used) web banners to at least have something in place for
the next days.

I re-used some of our already available material. For the background,
I've tried to closely follow the recent MIME icon enhancements initiated
by Paulo. And most people I've heard agreed with the color "blue" ...

Graphic plus source file:

Maybe somebody (Nik, Paulo, Mike ...) can jump in and refine it a bit,
and resize it (see shorter texts above)?
