Subject Re: [VOTE] Flex logo contest page publish [Last Detail - thoughts]
Date Sun, 08 Jan 2012 14:08:33 GMT
I think if we want to get some buzz out there and captivate some
professional logo maker's attention to get its vision and proposals about
Apache Flex, we should get accesibles the contest to the people who work
all day in this subjects. So, maybe to post the contest in some of the
communities that are focused on design logos and graphics could bring to
the board some interesting logos and icons to show and select.

As well, we should promote this contest through all mediums (blogs,
twitter, facebook, ...) and give a startin day and a end day.

Makes this sense?
