I there a way to test new GIMP 2.7/2.8 in Fedora? I looked in Rawhide
repos and I still see only 2.6x versions there. Any plans to put 2.7 in
Rawhide repost for testing purposes?

Hi Design Friends,
In the last email I was inspired by the project name Laughlin and the phrase ' The whole is more than the sum of its parts.' I saw this as an opportunity to push the visual concept of cut and paste. Replication of the same simple shape to make a very complex design. How far can you push it. Something as simple as a line can be pushed pretty far. Here are some links:

The cut and paste concept would work with any shape. I am going to just take a simple line and push it. I did a pencil concept sketch for a line illustration idea I had. Anyone is welcome to pursue it with me.
There are a lot of great inspirational resources out there I use that are available to you.
Hope this helped with some inspiration!

One of the suggestions for visualizing the theme for Laughlin was,
"Something that can illustrate the emergence concept, like multiple
objects combined to create a new one (more complex). "
The work of Robert Laughlin, who "was awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize in
physics for his explanation of the fractional quantum Hall effect.
Moreover he argues for emergence which is a concept that says 'The whole
is more than the sum of its parts.' Fedora is more than the sum of its
Visually I think this concept could make a nice theme. It could be cool
to use objects or phenomena from nature to illustrate it. e.g., many
drops of water making a stream or whatnot. Do you have any ideas on how
we might visualize this?
BTW Tatica put together some mockups around a atomic theme:
I think the backdrop of atomos.svg is nice - with a bit of tweaking it
could make a nice abstract pattern.

I know in the past we've talked about having regular meetings before but
timezones have been a bit of an issue.
I was wondering if we could revisit this and consider weekly or
bi-weekly meetings? We could simply check in with each other, talk about
what projects we've been working on, and maybe go through open ticket
items in our trac queue .
What do you think? I started a time slot grid at whenisgood.net - would
you mind checking off the times you could make? If you set the local
time dropdown at the top center of the page it should automagically
readjust everything to your local time:
If we can't find enough times for everybody to meet, maybe we could
alternate meeting times so everyone can at least come to one?
It wouldn't be a requirement for everyone to come to the meetings, but I
think it would be good to have set times we chat together in IRC. Over
the past few weeks we've been having some good discussions in
#fedora-design but it's been ad-hoc - I'd love to see it become a more
What do you think?
Hi my fellow fedora art team,
My name is Norfaisal Ismail and I am from Malaysia. Since using fedora
around July last year, I think I am also responsible to spread out
this Free Software idea to my colleagues and friends here in my
hometown. So, just talking around would not much impact the public but
with some initiative like t-shirt, key-chains, stickers for
note/netbook would easily make public feel like to ask back about this
blue color logo with infinity blended with f character and what is it
So, the main idea to join fedora art is to share and give ideas so
that the designs, arts and outlook of fedora will gives more meaning
to the user and future user.
My designing skill is not that up to expert level, previously I had
done some designs for T-shirt, caps, brochures and banners for local
government agencies and small medium enterprises. I hope I can learn
more with you guys here and ready to be tested.
I wanted to introduce myself and express interest in joining the Fedora
Project design team.
My name is Gabriel Alvarado, I'm a graduate of the Academy of Art University
in San Francisco and though my degree is in animation I've been leaning
towards getting into the design side of things lately.
I've done some freelance work doing logos and illustrations and would be
interested in pitching in with some of the iconography design.

Hello Design Team!
My name is Daniel Berryhill and I'd like to start contributing to Fedora in some small way. I owe a lot to this humble platform and I feel it's time I gave back to the community. I cut my teeth on the Gimp many years ago when I switched to Linux (after Windows slowly killed my laptop). I am a very skilled photo/image editor and have recently learned how to use that other Adobe program as well. I am familiar with Inkscape, but not to the same degree (something I'm working on right now :). I have some design experience including button designs, web graphics and logo creation. My programming skills are very rudimentary; I am proficient in HTML (though I am still in the process of wrapping my head around CSS) and I have a very basic understanding of Java.
Anyways, all that is to say that I'm very excited to contribute in any way. I know I can handle some of the “Quick & Easy” projects in the Design Service Queue, but I admit I'm mostly here to absorb what I can of this groups general knowledge and hopefully become a better contributor further down the road.
Pleased to meet you,
As insperation for the FUDCon EMEA Banner and Shrit design I have
uploaded an image to:
It would be great to have something with mountains (as we are in
Switzerland this year), green and maybe a sea. The FUDCon Logo could
perhaps be mirrored within the sea (only an idea).
Hope that helps.
