We did not have the amount of time we typically have (paired with a substantial workload
for Flock despite having much of the design assets initially complete in April and May,
trying to avoid what ended up happening with it taking over the summer) but we did in fact
have open discussion on this design, we started with a poll for the theme then a
collaborative pinboard and a few iterations on the ticket. This is really an alpha
wallpaper and will be refined for final; it was put together quickly so we had something
We do not use the wiki for managing this process and have not for some time.
We've been doing this a very long time and appreciate your trust in our proven ability
to produce a quality collaboratively-designed product once more.

Hi everyone. I didn't see any discussion on the list about the new
wallpaper for F27 beta, but I see that this hit the bugtracker:
, and I went ahead
and put it online here:
since it wasn't already.
MediaWiki renders the SVG wrong. The SVG also crashes geeqie. Maybe it
can be simplified? Click through to download the original SVG.
It's got a jellyfish swirl kind of thing going on, in line with the
earlier-discussed aquatic theme. It seems like a good start, but I'd
really love to see this get the kind of collaborative refinement and
discussion we had here for the last one.
To me, there are two main concerns with the current image are:
1. I think the jellyfish are too bold for a great default background
image; they're kind of busy and distracting rather than fading
into the.. background. Maybe something like the fog in the F26
background could help?
2. Also speaking of the F26 background, which I've earlier mentioned
that I love... based on discussion here about the importance of the
community working together to make the new backgrounds, I'm happy to
see a new one developed, but I'd really like to see it kind of
visually flow from the F26 one. Someone commented to me on Flock
about the F26 background: "It really seems like Fedora is developing
a distinct look, not just putting up a random image." I'd like to
see that continue. How can we bring that into this image?
