Subject Re: Volunteer design work for Apache Software Foundation....

Hi Melissa, Rich and Sebbaz,

And HULLO to the dev@community list!
(I've been subscribed for some time, but waiting my turn, Rich and 
Melissa suggested moving this discussion here)

I've prepared some early graphics for the conference (and hopefully it 
is flexible enough to accommodate many conferences to come).
Rather than attach them as I've previously done, I've uploaded them here;

Since the location has been decided, I'll go ahead and update the text 
in the tag to read Denver?
The graphic is vector so it will scale well, I think it'd make a nice 
white shirt too =)
(and though the idea of wearing a shirt with a lanyard while wearing a 
lanyard seems silly, it would make plenty of sense when worn after the 
conference =).

 Nobody currently on this thread is a designer, and I think the wider audience might be better
able to answer your queries.
