Today I read this mailinglist post from Scott Ritchie. A new "branding-ubuntu" package allows for branding arbitrary graphics in a derivative friendly way sounds like a fantastic idea.
I really want to contribute and so today I looked at the Gnome card game Aisleriot as project number one. I wanted to create a new background for the "table" and new card backs.
The current graphics looks kind of out dated, so I quickly created this first brainstorm mockup.
As you can see (maybe you didn't notice) I used the tiled wallpaper (with the small Ubuntu logo) from my Ubuntu Wanted website layout.
There is still a long way to go for this first prjoect, and I know that my work isn't exactly what Scott Ritchie was looking for.
more to come...
