Ubuntu Artwork

This is a page to help you get started on your way towards contributing artwork to Ubuntu.

General Information

Goals and Objectives

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.
