Hey Jef,
     Here's the stuff I had worked on for the design-bounty.  I made the realese-notes banner smaller so that all four corners would be rounded (instead of the two on the left being chopped off).  The minibar allows for more content on subsequent pages.  I only kept the "features" bubble from the four-Fs since this document is all about new features - but it wouldn't be a big deal to swap it out with anything.  Finally, Mo had mentioned getting some screenshots on the document.  I pulled a picture of the BFO from the fedora Wiki and added a "dramatic" angle and drop shadow.  I hope this helps!  Let me know if you need help getting different headers into your OOo document (it took me a little while to figure out!).

Hi everyone,

I'm Jef (or Schendje on IRC and my new Fedora People account). I'm the one who wanted to give the first Fedora Design Bounty a shot as can be read here:


So I made a first mock-up (work in progress!) which can be found here:


I included all the materials and sources I used. F13-feature-profiles_edit1.pdf is the main one, I also included an annotated version at F13-feature-profiles_edit1_notes.pdf.

Things I wondered about (besides the annotations):

- I follow a lot more of the Ubuntu world, and wasn't sure of any trademark designs Fedora uses. I quickly made a simple background, but have no idea if it fits with your brand. I used only the official Fedora colors though.
- How far I can go with the fancy-schmancy designs. I don't want to overdo it, because that would not only look bad but also get in the way of readability and such (mchua already pointed out the background might conflict with a black and white version, which is why blackWhiteTest.png is there).
- What's the final format I should design for? Will it be on paper, pdf, do I need to keep the margins for any printers, things like that?

I'd love to hear what you guys think. All comments/questions/remarks are welcome!
