So we had the FUDCon ad all finished, and then there was a last-minute
change of format, and from B&W to color. But we did it!
...the wrong way 'round. It works this way, Chris is going to print it
sideways if we need to, but in case someone wants to pick up a quick
last-minute tweak, the ticket's up.
Chris notes the final file is needed by noon EDT (approx 4.5 hours from
now). We are ok as-is, so this is not a PANIC NOW! ticket, more a "if
you want to tweak it, noon EDT is the cutoff" note.

11:20:44 * mchua could add "why is this ad sideways? come to FUDCon
Toronto and ask Chris Tyler to find out!"
I might be beating an old horse, but I have a question:
Why can't the blue fedora be used in reference to the Fedora project?
Now before everyone starts dancing to the rattle of their keyboards, let me
clear up a few things.
1. I don't want the hat to be the logo
2. I like our current logo
3. I've seen "The making of the Fedora Logo" on redhat.com
Why do I want to use the hat?
The answer really stems from an artistic standpoint. Characters such as
os-tans, linux penguins, etc. look really good with the hat. I like those
characters. I understand that the logo could be affixed to those, but it
looks weird as anything other than a badge for a shirt.
What follows is my counter to the page on the Fedora wiki.

I don't want to use a red hat.

I understand the need to seperate ourselves from Red Hat Linux, but Fedora
is a fork of a former version of Red Hat. Furthermore, Fedora is in the
name, making a direct reference to the shadowman's topper. Lastly, when
combined with the official colour scheme, the fedora(not referencing the red
hat design, most logos don't use it) does an extremely good job at
representing Fedora Linux.
Thanks for your time.
My name is James, I am a new subscriber to the Fedora Design Team. My recent
transition from a Illustrator CS and Photoshop CS enviroment to the Linux /
Inkscape / Gimp / Open source world has been an eye opener. I really like
the idea of a community based project and can't wait to help out you guys in
I am proficiant in the use of both Inkscape and gimp, avid reader of

Unfortunately I am low on example work (it's complicated), I currently have
alot of spare time on my hands, so I am putting it to good use on a new
Is there library of base fedora media that I can get my hands on?
Hi Design Team,
I'm wondering who is the maintainer of the Fedora Remix logos? And
whether someone can package them up into a fedora-remix-logos package
to make them easier to use for things like plymouth boot screens (to
replace that horrid hotdog thing). I originally filed a bug  to get
them added to the generic-logos package but it was suggested a new
package might be better. In the short term it would be great to be
able to use it for the Moblin Remix for F-12 (which will be mainline
for F-13 :-) ) but also it would be useful to make it easier for
people like the sugar team to be able to add a remix label to their
releases so its more easily identifiable as something based on Fedora
