Hi Design team,
let me inform you about the upcoming deadline for Splash Screens and
Wallpapers on Fedora 27. The deadline takes effect on 2017-Aug-29.
After the deadline, there will be 2 working days till 2017-Sep-04 for
packaging, before the Fedora 27 release gets into Beta Freeze (on
Platform & Fedora Program Manager
Red Hat Czech s.r.o., Purkynova 99/71, 612 45 Brno, Czech Republic
I've done a little digging on Jacques Costeau (the STEM innovator that
is serving as inspiration for the F27 wallpaper), and made a pinboard
of some images that I think represent a good direction to move towards
in terms of the design. Costeau was as French undersea explorer of the
mid 1900s, and his underwater exploration is what he was best known
for, so I think that some sort of an aquatic theme would be fitting for
this project. The pinboard below is comprised mostly of underwater
images with interesting bright blue/ dark blue (almost black)contrast
as I think something like this would fit in quite well with the
previous Fedora wallpapers.
You had time until 30th to vote for the theming for Fedora 27, I have
the results now. There was 14 voters, as always some arent team members
but its fine.
from the 14
5 want to go with Jacques Cousteau
5 want to go with Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot
4 want to go with Vladimir Chelomey
I think we had that already on the first voting, that I had to put my
vote for favoring a side, to get a clear result, seems I have to do this
time again. I putting mine for Jacques Cousteau because I think we get
easier to ideas with this one, and I want also to make the Supplemental
Wallpaper this time themed and with Cugnot that could be harder.
