<br> <br>h2. Preamble <br> <br>Apache OpenOffice (AOO) is the re-named
and re-homed, the second most popular Productivity Software package on the
market.&amp;nbsp; Our users number in the tens of millions worldwide.&amp;nbsp; AOO
is one of the most important pieces of open source software available today.&amp;nbsp;
Being of a type of application that is universally used in computers world wide by people
of all ethnicities and localities and from home users and small business through to large
enterprise and government. <br> <br>The OpenOffice community is over ten years
old, it spans all time zones, a myriad of cultures and languages and levels of technical sophistication.&amp;nbsp;
This creates a vibrancy and atmosphere within the community that is unique to the OOo universe.
<br> <br>The OpenOffice User community shares many of these attributes but is
far larger than the volunteer community. <br> <br>h2. Aim <br> <br>The
aim of the project is to provide the Apache OpenOffice Project Management Committee with options
for some new branding options for the 4.0 release.&amp;nbsp; Volunteers can use existing
branding as a starting point or start entirely afresh. <br> <br>h2. Scope <br>
<br>Required: <br>* An AOO Logo <br> <br>Considerations: <br>*
Can be altered for use in splash screens, about screens, publications, website, elements in
application icons, etc. <br>* Brand proposals that show more than just a logo, considering
placement in the areas of focus such as splash screen and websites. <br> <br>h2.
Criteria For Logo &amp; Branding <br> <br>There are three criteria for logo
proposals.&amp;nbsp; <br> <br>*Primary Requirements* must be satisfied in
order to be considered, it will be disqualified until it is remedied.&amp;nbsp; <br>*Secondary
Considerations* are nice to haves, a logo proposal can have none of these yet can be a perfectly
fine proposal. <br>*Restrictions* must not be satisfied, it will be disqualified until
it is remedied. <br> <br>h3. Primary Requirements: <br> <br>* Logo
submissions must include the source. <br>* Logos can be as large as the designer wishes,
but must be able to scale down and not loose detail. eg.. for website, splash screen, etc.
<br>* Although text in the logo is optional, any font used must be a free and open font.
eg. SIL Open Source Fonts.&amp;nbsp; Any font used in the logo must be disclosed upon
submission. <br>* Incorporation of gulls literally or symbolically, but not necessarily
the existing shape used in current branding. <br> <br>h3. Secondary Considerations:
<br> <br>* Can be altered for appending an application version, &quot;Apache
OpenOffice 4.0&quot; <br>* Can be altered for use in splash screens, about screens,
publications, website, elements in application icons, etc. <br> <br>h3. Restrictions:
<br> <br>* Cannot use proprietary fonts. <br>* Cannot resemble other productivity
software branding that exist on the market. <br>* Cannot closely resemble other logo
and trademarks by other organizations. eg. gold colored arches, single swoosh, blue thumbs
up <br>* Cannot use the Apache logos or other trademarks. <br></td></tr>
