Re: Debian redesign

The art and design proposal are interesting.

The logo should be discussed and voted as the current one was, and it is
not essential to change.
Some ideas behind its redesign could be "backported" to the current
logo, as to choose "some" nice looking free font instead of a
proprietary one, and good scaling capability.

The posters do not send the right message about the values of Debian but
were well crafted. They are proposals.
A possible requirement for "global" posters could be suitability for
different cultures, (something "nice" at Amsterdan could be "offensive"
at Saudi Arabia, for example; something "positive" at NY could be
"depressive" at China, another example).

The site and imagery proposal (cards, cd covers, banners, templates,
etc) is interesting and worth an evaluation by all.
But why not join efforts with the www-team, also?
I remember when Pixelgirl approached other debian-list and explained its
concepts [3] and coordination problems were pointed already there [5].
The Project is in need of qualified people and welcome efforts, but
these valuable efforts should be maximized without double, or
conflicting, or un coordinated actions (as already stated by FAW and
The Pixelgirl proposal is broader than a site redesign.
And the site redesign is a giant task itself, with many many constraints
and requirements [6], as Kalle is demonstrating [1].
The Project could consider the PixelGirl proposal as it is: a good
proposal for discussion and improvements.
Please, do not shoot the initiative in the head, but direct it to the
right direction.
Please, invite her to join the other teams involved [4][6][7][8] at the
tasks covered by her work.
Also, invite her to join efforts with Rhonda and Kalle advanced stage
