This Blueprint will depend on: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/torios/+spec/torios-logo

I am sure this will be the most excited blueprint that everyone is waiting for, right? well, for me, I am waiting this blueprint with great passion :D

We need the following:

1- ToriOS Logo: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/torios/+spec/torios-logo
2- Launchpad Branding (icons with different sizes: (14x14 and 64x64 and 192x192)
3- Social Media Branding (Cover Picture + Profile Picture)

4- One default Wallpaper for the desktop (this one can wait for sometime - not urgent)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

#4 can wait but the rest is important IMHO. We need someone dedicated for this. I know Lubuntu Artwork Team Leader Rafael (my good friend - who has done the StartUbuntu Artwork - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StartUbuntu/Artwork) and I know Alfredo, Ubuntu GNOME Artwork Team leader and I also know a friend on Facebook who is interested in Artwork. I am sure there are more who might be also interested.

Here, we are NOT going to agree/disagree about the above needs. We are here to discuss the work details, what is in our mind for the design, etc and stuff like that.

====================================

[amjjawad] first of all, for the above ^^ comment, please mention your name between [YourName] :D
Second of all, I am chatting with a super skilled and great Artwork Wizard who might help us :D just thought to update this to keep everyone in the loop!

We also need to decide on an official font (for logo) and other branding
http://openfontlibrary.org/
This has a lot of the fonts already in the ubuntu repositories, but is very visual, and may have some more that are not in the repos.

This one is simple and nice looking:
http://openfontlibrary.org/en/font/earthbound
We will have to find out what type of license we can use for a logo font (it seems that it should be pretty open to use any of those fonts as a logo)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

[f-jack] I like opensans and It's under the SIL Openfont License so it's very easy for us to use it.

[amjjawad] Logo is done. We do need now to finish this: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/torios/+spec/torios-logo - I have updated it and updated the Work Items to reflect our Plan and how we should move forward.

I think once we agree on the 'design' itself and the 'colours' being used, we can always change the font and choose something we want and like :)

Again, to make sure everyone is aware:

We must finish this: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/torios/+spec/torios-logo THEN start working on this: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/torios/+spec/torios-artwork

Work Items updated :)

Thank you!
