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.

Getting Involved

If you would like to get involved with the Artwork Team start by following these steps:

  • Join the mailing list. There are RSS and browser friendly tools located at http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ubuntu.artwork. In order to increase the readability and understanding of email reponses to the mailing list please include your comments underneath the sentence/paragraph/part-of-the-email you are responding too. Almost all mailers can do this easily. If yours doesn't please take extra attention to doing this by hand.

  • Join the IRC channel: #ubuntu-artwork at irc.FreeNode.net.
    We recommend the XChat-client: XChat Howto.
    Logs of everything spoken in the channel.

Projects

  • The artwork for Jaunty Jackalope is pretty much a done deal, so you should direct your attention to Karmic Koala.

  • If you have a complete concept that is meant to be developed outside of the regular release cycle, please use the form in /Incoming. Keep it clear and simple.

  • You can submit Ubuntu-specific wallpapers and themes to [http://ubuntu-art.org|ubuntu-art.org], but anything that shall have a chance of being shipped with Ubuntu or included in a community-provided package, has to be placed in the Incoming directory of the upcoming release.
