At the end of the 4th issue I complained about
the lack of "We run GNU" icons for webpages. Interestingly enough a lot more people seemed to feel
this way so I decided to start this initative:|
The GNU Project itself focused heavily on writing more and better software while the publicity has been kind of neglected. But the GNU Project has always lived off the engagement of many people and a very effective way of improving the public profile is creating and using graphics on webpages, t-shirts, mugs and so on. So I would like to ask everyone to pick up the GNU Image Manipulation Program and create new ideas and GNU artwork.
The majority of all motifs should be released under the GPL on this page in order to create an archive for people looking for GNU artwork.
Starting with motifs for t-shirts to small stickers for the personal computer everything is possible. Everyone whoīd like to publish his or her designs can mail them to me at Brave GNU World <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Please use the png or jpg format as gif isnīt free (see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/gif.html). Itīs also a good idea to create the images with a very high resolution. This page would only give the thumbnails then that link to the full version. That way people could resize them in order to fit their purpose.
In order to provide some ideas, here is my current wishlist:
Return to GNU's home page.
Please send FSF & GNU inquiries & questions to email@example.com. There are also other ways to contact the FSF.
Please send comments on the Brave GNU World column to firstname.lastname@example.org, send comments on these web pages to email@example.com, send other questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
