We need some help from the developers to identify where in the source

I've checked in Chris's logo source files here:

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/ooo-site/trunk/content/marketing/art/galleries/logos/aoo-working/

As the name suggests, this is a working folder for now, until we
figure out what we're doing.  Note: you'll need to download and
install the Source Sans Pro font if you have not done that already.
