Q: What does the Art project do ?
A: The art project attempts to centralize all the related graphics and the graphics creation process so that everybody can easily find the needed graphics in one single location, and at the same time all new graphics requests can be directed to a single place.
Here is a brief list of activities inside the project:

  • Building an art directory containing the existing graphics across projects - The aim is to create and maintain a single repository where everybody can look for graphics related to The way of doing it is by making contact with the projects, finding out about the existing graphics, and centralizing them in easily browseable galleries.
  • Creating new art - The project needs new graphics for its various components and activities. We encourage graphic artists to participate and contribute with their creations.
    Whether we are talking about new nice screenshots, new posters, nice CD-covers or improved GUI icon sets, new contributions in all these fields and many others help the project evolve and remain fresh.
    There can be freely contributed artwork in which you can put everything you like (i.e. the wallpapers), but there is also coordinated artwork which must be built according to certain specifications in order to keep a unified visual identity of the project.
    In return for your contributions we will try to promote your volunteer work as much as we can.
  • Translating and internationalizing art - Cooperating with Native-Language Projects is one of our main goals in order to make the graphics art usable for all the projects. This means translating existing art and newly created art into as many languageas as we can and from specific languages into English in order for other projects to benefit from the contributions made by the Native Language Projects.>

Q: I want to help. How do I proceed ?
A: After making yourself familiar with the project by reading the text pages, browsing the galleries and becoming acquainted with the legal issues and acceptable licenses for the artwork, you should consider doing the following:

We are looking forward to meeting you on the list.
