LibreOffice's CALL FOR SUBMISSION receives interesting artwork (deadline January 26th 2013)
We appreciate, aren't we, open-source projects due to their open nature, both in code and community participation, latter attitude constantly involving interested users in critical/relevant processes of various open-source projects.
Days ago, the LibreOffice developers publicly announced the open community-participation into the design of the upcoming LibreOffice 4.0 series, allowing creative users to submit their creations to a specific webpage, later being voted and (if successful) landed in the official 4.0 release of the powerful office suite.
The targeted visual parts are splash screen, about window, welcome screen and swiss style, essentially, elements that are highly-visible.
The uploaded proposals are definitely interesting, creative styles ranging from futuristic (with modern shapes, colors and patterns), fresh (adopting a minty style with noticeable green elements), bold (expressing dark tones and monochrome icons) and classy (incorporating folded corners and shadows).
Creations can be submitted until January 26th 2013, 16:00 UTC.
