Mission statement: To create and maintain a central repository of
OpenOffice.org related graphics and artwork and to provide dedicated tools and a
proper environment for graphical art creation and internationalization in the bennefit
of the OpenOffice.org Community and Projects.
Areas covered by the project include (but are not limited to) posters,
screenshots, CD-covers, OpenOffice.org related wallpapers and other promotional
graphics, GUI graphics, web graphics, labels, logos, etc. All the above will
be created and maintained in tight coordination with the respective projects
that use the graphics and with the native language projects in order to internationalize
the created art.
Why the art project ? The project has been created as a way to centralize
all the graphics related work in the OpenOffice.org Community in order to eliminate the
duplication of efforts in graphics creation by offering a central place where to look for
already created graphics and also a central place where to direct the graphics creation
requests from the Community.
Looking for graphics ? If you are looking for OpenOffice.org related
graphics, please feel free to browse our galleries.
The galleries are organized by themes (posters, screenshots, wallpapers, etc) and
where possible we provide links to localized/translated versions of the graphics
in various languages. While browsing the galleries, please consider rating the artwork
so that we know how we are performing.
You did not find the needed graphics ? If you did not manage to find
the needed artwork for your project, please consider filing in a
graphics creation request. It may be possible that
one of the volunteer artists will create the needed art for you.
