I also think we should look what people also outside from Fedora
would and also should think if they see the theme ( goal of theme).
My first look was into wikipedia (as maybe many Users out there who
did not know history well). And maybe some of them get also confused
by the very much meanings around there.
But thats just some ideas we can think deeper. I also had the Logo of
my old University (see http://www.tu-darmstadt.de/ ) in mind as I saw
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine_I . and I did not know if
this is good, but I think many students would look into a
Distribution wich looks pretty much like the logo of their
Then I think nicu's mosaic idea sounds good and I suggest that we
could port this "old" mosaic style and "improve" it to a modern
style. Maybe some blue-metalic-rendering thingy (I just let this idea
flow around your heads ;-) ).
Also I had the the "Lion" we had in Fedora11 in my head and now maybe
another animal ... do we want the same theming or something new?
The Lion has a bit of an aggressive meaning, Constantine is en
emperor (also a bit aggressive) do we want the same way or make
Questions over questions, but maybe some flowing ideas came out...
just brainstorming a bit...
So: what should be our intention and in wich direction should THEN be

with results and examples.
i suggest we first take a look at the associations with Constantine.
these associations will be the bases for out new style. so no
examples, just conceptual works. is that a good idea to approach it?
my associations are:
- roman emperor
-- roman architechture
-- roman mosaic's
- Constantinople (Istanbul)
-- east meets west
-- byzantine architecture
with the name Constantine come association that have to do with
religion. I do get the idea that we should avoid the religious themes
a bit. But this theme is really heavily based on religion on it's
own. We will probably have some angry faces just because of the name.
keeping out religion on this one will be really hard!
I think we should set up some boundaries on where we can go and where
we can't. for example: Istanbul can be shown by the architecture in
the city. This will always include some religious architecture, can
we show this? can we give hints about his connection to Christianity?
where is the border?
