I actually get a decent amount of referrals to my blog through
start.fpo. I can dig through my stats and get some numbers... pretty
high though. Almost as many referrals as I got from planet GNOME when i
was still on there, and typically about the same or more than planet
So some folks seem to be using it.
I have some criticism to make if you want to improve your design skills,
they may sound hard but they are with good intentions.
Seems that you haven't defined the objective of the poster, what you want
to achieve with it.
To start you have to answer the following questions
Will it be printed or used on digital media? (that will define the support,
is not the same using full rgba colors than just cyan an black)
Which size will it be? (if you use paper you will be attached most-likely
to A2, A3, A4, etc sizes)
What is it about? (it's a meeting? About what? It's important to define the
objective of the piece)
Which public are you looking for? (non linux users / linux users / 60+
years / teenagers, etc, most of the time this will tell you what kind of
arrangements / decorations you can use and what you can't)
Once you define that, you can start doing something.
I let you these links, just to see what other people does, it may give you
some ideas, you judge.
You can tell that both systems will participate in the meeting without
dividing the poster in two.
You could use the sign/logos of the distributions instead of those two
rectangles, and / or put some simple sentences.
Make it cleaner and simple but communicative.
Use a titles, tell an idea, tell something.
And most important give to each element a reading priority.
Start with 2 or 3 levels.
Like a first header & second header and a paragraph+images:
"The importance of the open source
Review of Fedora & Slackware
And of course you can add a paragraph with further info.
Or whatever the poster is about. The title is to attract people
which could be interested on the theme of the meeting.
Another important item: don't stretch the logos.
That's my opinion, if I made a mistake I request to my colleagues to point
I'm looking forward to see your results
The following suggestion was put forth in a trac ticket  for the CD /
DVD covers by user "nightmoves":
Before we start printing/publishing stuff for the the F16 Sleeve Artwork
I'd like to make a small suggestion about the content on the cover with
respect to the F15s and so on that had this but doesn't seem right.
Where it says " We hope you enjoy using Fedora. If so, you can install
it to your computer....". The "If so" part makes it seem like a
condition, wherein if you like using fedora, go ahead, else what?? Maybe
we should have the "If so" part removed.
I have added my two cents to the ticket, feel free to discuss, and help
us decide before we start the design of the f17 cd / dvd covers.

I was just going though the design-team tickets queue, and discovered
the following ticket:
Just in case you did not know, our now (in)famous Fedora 17 codename
namesake once began life as part of the generic-logos package. According
to the package description, The generic-logos package contains images
that can be used as a replacement for the fedora-logos package, if you
are unable for any reason to abide by the trademark restrictions on the
Since Beefy Miracle is now the proud mascot of Fedora 17, we need a new
hero for the generic-logos package, since Beefy is no longer considered
Is anyone up to the challenge?
