Re: Squeeze Artwork: selection of default theme


my vote:

1. LISP - it's a nice image with a great story. For CD-Cases ect. the colorfull version is great - for themeing & wallpapers a less conspicuous (= blue) version would be better.
2. Ciel - the meanigful background of LISP is unreachable for the others, but it I like the cloudy style :). As Jousselin said: the contrast could be better, at least the swirl needs a little unbluring.

BTW: After submitting my proposal I was a little overstrained with building all the stuff wich is needed - I think people wich create good artwork and great debian packages and know all the themeing related technical details (the debian specifics,too) are damn rare. :)

I'm voting:

- SpaceFun, BUT

1. I'd like Herr Hansen's CD covers.
2. I don't like SpaceFun's bootsplashes, they just look like an old C64 game :)

Why SpaceFun?

It looks very nice with the Shiki-Brave theme and gnome-brave icons, which are
both in stock Debian. gnome-brave also has Debian branding in it. This doesn't
matter, as they won't be chosen, but still, it makes theming it easier.

It wasn't really about sourcecode, but rather the ease to do
resolution/size modification. With svg it's rather gratuitous, while

It's not really a big deal, just that svg is nice for us :)

That's fine!

I just want to underline that it is a serious matter to me to publish the sourcecode of the artwork. To show that this isn't just talking, I already placed the source (400 MB) of the CD label for download (and the free fonts, I used).

So take a look into the machinery! ;-)


As for the other elements missing: I am working at it right now. I had kind of a late start, as I had the idea for the new squeeze CD artwork in mid october and needed some time to consider if it works as Desktop Artwork as well . But if you look at the progress the theme made since the discussion here, I hope there is no doubt, that I can deliver the rest in the next days.
