Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] New Apache OpenOffice 4 logo proposals...
Date Sun, 06 Jan 2013 03:23:45 GMT
Michael,
  Thanks for you continuous working on it!
  While honestly, I feel the latest design little different than the
current 3.4.x logo.

  I'm not a designer, so I only describe what in my mind: maybe we can
simply (perhaps not so simple...) try to make stronger 3D effect to the
orb, adding more transparency effort to make it like a blue crystal ball...
some light going through the orb, but not only reflect on the surface...
and the 2 sea gulls flying out from inside...

  And I also like to see "4" to be highlighted with a bright color other
than grey. Since it is the number we want to promote.

  Just my 0.02$
