Hello, my name is Rafael Laguna (Redwolf). I'm from London, settled in Valencia. As a graphic designer, I love to customize my Linux desktop so I joined the LXDE design team. I'm an amateur rugby player.

Obviously a designer's career and contribution list may not be as huge as a coder's one, our kind of interventions may be too specific. That's why I intended to take myself out from the computer and spreading Ubuntu all over educational centers, trying to educate future Ubuntu users about the benefits of this system, as well of other free software packages (LibreOffice, KDEnLive, The GIMP, etc).
This evolves designing the whole artwork package for the Lubuntu distro

I'd like to continue my work in this operating system and its derivatives, co-working with the great people I've already know and those who are newcomers. We need every mind. I'm happy to collaborate with the brand new project LXQT and its implementation on Lubuntu systems.
I am amazed that I am first to leave a testimonial here. Rafael makes Lubuntu look beautiful. I wish I could say more about his work for Ubuntu Adverts here too, as those creative teams are near ready for graphics work. Keep up the good work! -- UndiFineD 2011-04-05
Rafael done (and continues to do) an amazing work for Lubuntu, providing the artwork for 3 releases. It's include background, images, windows theme, and slideshow for the installer. I'm very happy to work with him, he is always enthusiastic, and answer questions and feedbacks very quickly and always in a positive way. Artwork is an important work for a distribution. It's the visual identity, and the look & feel is important for the users. Rafael deserves equal thanks than people who do patches, packages, documentation, support and help. -- gilir 2011-06-24
It does beggar belief that such a talented and dedicated guy needs a testimonial. But, here goes Rafael is not only the 'chief of staff' for the Lubuntu themes, he also is more than willing to help out on other projects. It is one of those "Why, on earth, is he not already a full member" moments that was recently rectified via the main forum. Rafael breeths the graphics into Lubuntu, without him life would have been more difficult. I do ask the council to consider that not every contributer to *buntu can have a 'score' in points. Please look upon his application favourably. phillw 2011-09-03
I haven't worked with Rafael very much, but I have helped him out with small tasks. Rafael's a great guy and the amount of quality work Rafael has put in Lubuntu is incredible. He has taken the distribution to a whole 'nother level with his artwork and design, and to be honest Lubuntu wouldn't be where it is today if it wasn't for him. I really hope to work with Rafael more in the future, whether it's a small task or a larger project. frankbooth 2011-09-03
I wholeheartedly support Rafael's application to be a Ubuntu Member. He has shown sustained and significant contributions to help keep Lubuntu looking great. His graphical work with Lubuntu is always of a very high quality. He is very approachable and assists others on the mailing list. -- jarednorris 2011-09-05 04:38:00
