Can you use the white version of the Fedora logotype instead
of the blue? We don't normally allow a glow behind the logo.
I'll send you a copy of the white logo privately. If there
isn't enough contrast for the logomark/infinity symbol in
the upper left corner mraybe try the lower left corner?


That actually is a packaging issue, the logo used is picked from
/usr/pixmaps/fedora-logo-small.png.


Here is how it would look (ignore the progress bar).
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~brejc8/temp/progress_bar4.jpg


If you want it like that then inform the packager to add the image into
the rpm as we can't have it in the upstream.



What kind of specifications do you have for the artwork for
the progress bar? Can you use just a flat image for the
background? I could take a shot at putting something together?


The progress bar is composed of two png images (the box and the bar)
which have the center pixel column stretched. the nodoka example is
attached.

For KDE splash we have small progress bar which should evoke
comet in the space with Fedora logo. And of course there

are other small comets and stars flashing around
Just like Solar system ;-)

Oooh! Actually that one is my favorite. Is that something
you could do, Charlie?

Yeah. Could be possible although I will need to ammend the code a little.
Jaroslav could you take a few more shots with the bar at different
levels so I can get an idea of how it progresses?

Hi,


That actually is a packaging issue, the logo used is picked from
/usr/pixmaps/fedora-logo-small.png.

I just asked spot to add this to the fedora-logos package.
It looks like this on a dark blue background:
http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/fedoralogo_white_shaded2.png

this is what will be packaged though:
http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/fedoralogo_white_shaded.png

Is this something that will work against the background
Charlie? (If not I can try a few tricks to make it stand out)

I asked spot to have it install at:
/usr/share/pixmaps/fedora-logo-fancy.png

What do you think?

We already have a white logo in fedora logos. Charlie was using a
custom built plymouth and his build was built against the wrong logo.

ooh switch that to /usr/share/pixmaps/logo-fancy.png (so its
easier to de-brand)

But it's not FANCY! Is it? ?

I have to leave now, maybe later. Sorry. But now you have progress
images so you can try it inkscape

Nice to see you like my idea!

It's pretty fancy:

We could update it to be yours, but I don't think we should have both.

Indeed, they are fancy, but will you change the logo guidelines to allow
them?

Right now I approve this on a case-by-case basis (the one
Ray sent me though, I'm not sure where it comes from but it
was never submitted for approval)

I think rather than changing the guidelines, what we should
do is decide on one we like and just make it a standard that
is part of the guidelines and shipped in the logo packs we
send out.

I think there is too much room for error for bad gradients
so we should just say, don't do it unless you use this one
kind of thing.

What do you think?
