##As a member of the team, you will also get up-to-the-minute updates whenever anyone adjusts a subscribed specification or the corresponding wiki page. The art team tries to keep all art related specifications subscribed to the art team, but sometimes a few slip through or simply aren't relevant enough. This can be quite helpful to track developments related to the specifications.

About the Artwork Team

The goal of the "Artwork Team" is to produce artwork for the community side of Ubuntu.

The Artwork Team aims to enrich Ubuntu by designing high quality, original and beautiful themes to be available in the repo as an *alternative* to the default look.

We tend to work in small groups on themes, so alongside people with a strong vision who can lead a team, we need plenty of others that can work together to help polish a great complete, cohesive look.

This involves designers, packagers and GTK+ & QT themeing experts, and we could certainly do with a few more hackers.


  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.


  • The current development cycle of artwork is Jaunty Jackalope.

  • 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.
