Re: Mascot Debian ? Create a contest?
I don't think that the spiral is a mascot. I don't see the spiral with
legs, arms and eyes.
I think we can have multiple Mascots, a 'Mascot Team' in different
ways and cultures. We would not have a single standard.
The proposal to create a contest is to encourage more artists to do
something for Debian. We will not choose one, I think the proposal is
to choose a 'Mascot Team'.
'Mascot Team' that can be composed of:
Hurd Mascot, BSD Mascot, Linux Mascot, Mascot Debian, Mascot Woman,
A variant of some existing characters as well. Tux can have the spiral
Chest and turns "Tux Debian". GNU may have a red cover with spiral...
But the cool thing is to have a catalog when you need to use in any
campaign, we have pieces ready to create.
I believe that Debian needs of characters/mascots. Anyone can use to
illustrate a documentation or create a piece to disclose anything
related to the project. Besides only the spiral, is another
attraction. For children for example.
Having a mascot for a child to explain what is Debian. Motivating
reading a comic book. In future designs or create movies. Until plush
Finally, they are only ideas.
Citando Michael Banck <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
Well, either the swirl should be an option, or "No mascot" should be,
"further discussion", while our default, doesn't seem a very good choice
Personally, I don't feel we need a mascot.
