A new design for Libreoffice 6

Dear LibreOffice design team

I am a high school student, and for a hobby I do Graphics Design. So, I decided to create a new design for the upcoming LibreOffice 6, because I love LibreOffice. I present to you my designs. They are in inkscape svg format, and have many advanced components, like clips and drop shadows, but inkscape will definitely open it. Moreover, I use Futura bold and FuturaTEE as fonts, which I downloaded as free for commercial use, so I think there won't be any legal problems concerning this. The fonts and the design are attached as svg and tar.gz containing otf files respectively. Also I attached a pdf file of my design exported by inkscape.
Your's faithfully,
Alex Angelou

Re: A new design for Libreoffice 6

Hi Alex,

Thank you very much for your engagement, but you should know that the
LibreOffice mailing lists do not support attachments so none of us can
see them, can you please upload them somewhere else and send the link here?

Thanks a lot!

Cheers,
Anxhelo

Re[2]: [libreoffice-design] A new design for Libreoffice 6

So I tried uploading the pdf file, but I'm still not sure how uploading files to the wiki works, so I only attempted uploading the PDF file. So I uploaded a tar.gz file on Google Drive, and made a sharing link.

The PDF file on the wiki (hopefully):
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/File:Libreoffice_6_stylesheet.pdf

The Google Drive compressed archive:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bxj_sjWtH-SGak1jNXJkWXJFV2M (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bxj_sjWtH-SGak1jNXJkWXJFV2M)

Re: Re[2]: [libreoffice-design] A new design for Libreoffice 6

Hi Alex,

Very nice layout, but would suggest the triangle corner clips should be
rounded as that has been the branding motif for quite some time (not sure
what the specific radius has been, but should be able to extract from the
current).

The module is Calc not Spreadsheet which you miss in your iconography,
showing a chart (an internal reporting format)  rather than a sheet  of
cells and an "S" in the stylized component icons.

The capital Sigma you've used for the Math might be a bit hard to read,
perhaps a f(x) or even an capital Omega.
 
Finally, using component name letter iconography for the  modules is
problematic for localization (also a bit of a riff on Adobe's CS/CC
practices.)

None the less a good bit of work, lets see what others more sage than I have
to add.

Stuart

Re: A new design for Libreoffice 6

Hi Alex,

forwarding Stuart's message. Plus, for the branding of 6.0 we did a lot in the last months [1,2], which should be settled now. Nevertheless you are very welcome to the design team. All information about the group is on [3], in particular how to get in contact (for those who don't like mailing lists we do have an active Telegram group). About the design I would like to add some references about branding colors [4] and icons [5,6].

Keep up the good work,
Heiko

Re[2]: [libreoffice-design] A new design for Libreoffice 6

Dear Heiko & Stuart
I read your points about the design, and I fixed them. The new version has a new (original and oriental) motif too, which I hope you'll love. I changed the "Spreadsheets" to "Calc", sorry, my mistake... Moreover, I made the triangles in the loading screens rounded, and changed the Libreoffice Math module's icon to an f(x) one. I was affraid that using Ω would result in the same pitfalls as in Σ. I did not delete the icons with the letters, because they still might seem useful. However, It's completely up to you if you want to use them. I'm sending the new pdf version to you through the wiki (I'll try, that is), and later I will send you the .tar.gz through Google Drive, in about 3 hours that is...
