Wanted to update those file on confluence, apparently I'm unable with my

Updated the three-up card piece at:
[note I seem to have not copied the odt file to the thumbdrive, so that
update will need to wait till Monday]
This piece is constructed with 6 independent frames so that it would be
easy for someone to use it and generate a full page of any single card

Also added this file, as a proposal for a general branding motif I would
like to use going forward with this small set of items:

ALSO - that would be my proposal for an NGO focused piece, if the text
seems should as I borrowed from the WHY web pages.

The question was asked how this brochure would look in Grayscale (off a
copier I assume)  so part of the change in graphics design was to
facilitate that and here is rough estimation of how that would look:

Finally, I added to possible web graphics using the ORB as motif:

Unfortunately they don't look so great after Google enhances them...arrgh,
so updates for both on Monday.
