The Fedora project has many avenues to participation. Art is just one of them.
Fedora 11’s artwork process is going to work a little differently than our artwork process has worked in the past. Rather than having multiple theme concepts competing with one another and dividing artists’ time and energies, we’re going to try having one theme concept (inspired by the release codename) that everyone works together on. We’re hoping to produce higher-quality artwork in a more timely manner this way.
We first need to works towards a solid visual concept for the F11 theme. We’ll need to have this defined by Februrary 1, which gives only about 3 weeks so we need to move fast.
- A ship in the British Royal Navy <= this is the meaning upon which the selection of the codename was based
- The king of Sparta, an ancient Greek militaristic society, as portrayed in the popular recent movie 300 which has a very distinctive visual style.
- A maker of Belgian chocolates
- many others!
Since the Royal Navy ship definition of Leonidas is the one upon which the codename was based and is themeable, we should go with this one so we have a solid focus and move more quickly.
