Subject Re: [WWW] new logo in staging only...I think we need a graphic modification
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 08:14:52 GMT
Hi everyone,

I think that kevin's changes are very important.

1) The looks is indeed more profesionnal. The capitalization has enhanced the
natural readability of the logo.
The kerning is better while somewhat a little dense (intermediate position would
be great).

2) The look of the main webpage is crucial : we absolutly have to get a
professional look and in my opinion this is not the case today.  because of the
JPEG quality and resolution (blurred image). We should improve the quality of
the JPEG (or use a non-destructive PNG).

(I am a new suscriber here at ooo-dev).

Kay et al.
I can help here. I have the skills and the tools.
Beyond getting the right size, I'd like to propose a few other small tweak to
the rendered logo. My proposed enhancements don't change the voted and approved
concept, rather, they merely some polish to the concept as we move towards
production consumption.
See proposed enhancements: 4. Enhancements to Selected Logo Concept (Kevin

I like the change of "Apache" to gray but am not so sure about its
capitalization. I understand the reason (after you pointed it out to us
non-artists :) though.
The kerning looks more homogeneous but somewhat dense. For example the i and c
in Office seem to almost touch.

I'll need to access the source files.

Maybe one of should drop Michael Acevedo a note, see if he already has a source

If not - I don't know of a svg (or any vector based) file for the bug part of
the image - I know how to recreate one properly from the 256px png image and
would be more then willing to do that, and recreate a likeness of the orb logo
design all vector based and a jpg from that.
I could likely have that here pretty quickly - it would be polite though to
email Michael first however, I suppose.
so - added him on CC to the mail here
Howdy Michael,
Good instincts on your proposal.. wondering if you have any source type fies for
the jpg file posted t the wiki?

OK, maybe I was a bit confusing, and I hope this elaboration helps.
What I think would be ideal is for someone to take the "cropped" image

did that is in svn at--
this is now 217 x 79
re-size it "up" to 275 x 100
with clear lettering instead of the blurring that happens
I have just about NO talent with graphics editing at all.
So thanks for any help with this.

We'll need the original vectors. I think the correct size will have the Orb be
about 70px tall and centered vertically with 15px above, below and left of it.
If the size is exactly 100 you probably don't need to do anything, but you might
want to edit css/ooo.css
#ooo-logo { height: 100px; padding-top: 4px; padding-left: 8px; }

ahhhh! light dawns -- maybe. The graphic height is actually 79 -- I didn't tract
down the css for any of this --but the rendering kept changing it to 100. It
looks better alreger actually but then there's teh blrury text.
OK, I'll play some more but it may have to wait until tomorrow.
You may want to remove the height setting.
To adjust the text banner here is the css in css/ooo.css:
#bannercenter { padding: 31pt 2pt 14pt 2pt; float: center; color: #107EC0; }
Play with the padding until pleased. I like to do this in Google Chrome.

OK, I'll try again...
Regards, Dave
I also copied Michael...

Folks --
The new logo is rendered on the staging web site right now-- <>
It will not go into the production site, until someone does a
"publish" which I have not yet done. I'm not happy with the size or positioning
of the new logo.
I rendered an alternate version of it -- cropped -- in
This actually looks pretty good *except* the image itself is 217 x 79, and
somehow the web site wants to render it at 275 x 100, which positioning wise is
SUPER, but then the lettering is quite blurry.
screen capture of what happened is at:
So, I would LOVE for some creative person out there to take
(cropped version is in svn also)
change it's size to 275 x 100 and make the lettering better.
On the other hand, if you love the staging rendering, I'll go ahead and publish
