Our interests are not only in creating artwork for use by the Ubuntu community, but also in advocating the use of creative tools included with Ubuntu. 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 10: Line 12:
Our activities include but are not limited to:
||<tablestyle="margin-left:25px;" style="border:0;">{{attachment:moin-dot.png}} ||<style="border:0;">Creating and submitting artistic content to the Team wiki.||
||<style="border:0;">{{attachment:moin-dot.png}} ||<style="border:0;">Discussing and exploring artistic ideas on the Team mailing list.||
||<style="border:0;">{{attachment:moin-dot.png}} ||<style="border:0;">Participation in upstream open source projects.||
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 15: Line 14:
The aim is to enrich Ubuntu by creating high quality artwork to be packaged and made available as Community-maintained Open Source software (universe). Concepts going beyond visual design into functionality are better handled by the [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ayatana|Ayatana project]].
Line 17: Line 16:
The process is agile as we tend to work in self forming small groups and collaborate with other teams. Those who have a strong vision of the outcome often assume a leadership role depending on others to assist as we strive to achieve a polished cohesive look. == What we do! ==

Team Lead: KennethWimer


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.

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.

Concepts going beyond visual design into functionality are better handled by the Ayatana project.
