The goal of the "Artwork Team" is to produce artwork for the community side of Ubuntu. ||<tablestyle="float:right; font-size: 0.9em; width:30%; margin:0 15px 0 15px;" style=" border:0px;">||

Line 10: Line 8:
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. <<BR>>
Line 12: Line 10:
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. 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 14: Line 12:
This involves designers, packagers and GTK+ & QT themeing experts, and we could certainly do with a few more hackers. 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 16: Line 14:
== 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.
Concepts going beyond visual design into functionality are better handled by the [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ayatana|Ayatana project]].

== Projects == == What we do! ==
Line 25: Line 18:
 * ''The current development cycle of artwork is '''[[/Incoming/Jaunty|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.
## * 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.
