Hello Everyone,

I am pleased to announce comments received off-line in reference to the
Artwork Team Logo submissions are very positive and thank you. However as
the clock ticks down on this task (2010-12-01) I would like to challenge the
Team to think out of the box. 

To quote Paul Rand (  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Rand  ) ...

> If, in the business of communications, “image is king,” the essence of
> this image, the logo, is a jewel in its crown.
> Here’s what a logo is and does:
> A logo is a flag, a signature, an escutcheon.
> A logo doesn’t sell (directly), it identifies.
> A logo is rarely a description of a business.
> A logo derives its meaning from the quality of the thing it symbolizes,
> not the other way around.
> A logo is less important than the product it signifies; what it means is
> more important than what it looks like.

In summary, it symbolizes who we are.

This team supports Ubuntu, but more importantly it supports the greater
community and the greater community does not have the resources available to

I encourage everyone who has not, to support this team/community with your
talent as without submissions we are nothing.

Best regards,
