The goal of the "Artwork Team" is to produce artwork for the community side of ubuntu. Mostly, this means the look of the actual distro itself, not promotional or marketing materials. We hope to produce artwork stunning enough that upon first glance, people want to know what Ubuntu is and where to get it. ||<tablestyle="float:right; font-size: 0.9em; width:30%; margin:0 15px 0 15px;" style=" border:0px;">||

## Etiquette page
##'''Things to keep in mind'''
## * Be considerate, and constructive
## * If you're about to criticise somebody's work, think carefully about how to do it. You do not want to create a negative atmosphere.
## * Make sure you don't disturb what others have done
## * Keep things in chronological order
## * Look through the pages to see if somebody has done what you've thought of already.
The Ubuntu Artwork team and mailing list serves as a get-together for people who create artwork with and/or for Ubuntu (including the derivatives). Besides great visual design, our interests include the use of Free Software and open processes to get there.
Line 20: Line 12:
== Guidelines ==
 1. Only post Ubuntu related artwork, and keep it '''Family Friendly'''.
 2. Everything contributed must be offered with a '''free license'''. If your submission also contains another's work, make sure that its license is compatible with Ubuntu. __Please make sure that you have clearly stated a license and your preferred method of attribution.__
##Do we need an approved list of licenses?
##We suggest [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ CC-SA]. Kwwii needs to talk to lawyers first
##Troy says CC-SA is incompatible with GPL due to scope.
Development of the default wallpaper, GTK themes, and icon sets for Ubuntu are lead by the Canonical Design Team. Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Mythbuntu, Lubuntu and supported packages are open to contributions in these categories.
Line 27: Line 14:
== Projects == Concepts going beyond visual design into functionality are better handled by the [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ayatana|Ayatana project]].
Line 29: Line 16:
 * ''The current development cycle of artwork is '''[[/Incoming/Intrepid|Intrepid Ibex]].'''''
 * If you have a complete concept that is meant to be developed outside of the regular release cycle, such as Blubuntu--please use the form in [[/Incoming]]. Keep it clear and simple.
## * Simple wallpapers and themes Ubuntu-specific can be submitted to [http://ubuntu-art.org Ubuntu-Art.org], a sister site of the -look.org and -file.org websites.
