      Description

      Hi Sebastian,

      As all we know, OpenMeetings is a software basically of video and audio.
      Therefore would be in line enhance the image of Apache OpenMeetings pages
      offering visitors a point where rest their eyes after reading.

      Perhaps it would be refreshing to the eye put a OpenMeetings logo at the header of the main page.
      You can see an example here:

      https://cwiki.apache.org/OPENMEETINGS/tutoriales-en-espaol-relacionados-con-openmeetings.html

      ...as well as update the icons at this page:

      https://cwiki.apache.org/OPENMEETINGS/

      I love OpenMeetings as you, therefore want OM look as beautiful as be possible.

      Other beneficial point woul be rename the title VMWare at the page:

      http://incubator.apache.org/openmeetings/installation.html

      ...to:

      VMWare - Iso Live DVD

      ...because thinking as a normal user computer as i am, if found only VMWare title (not now)
      could not imagine in that paragraph were a live iso dvd, but the most of the people know
      what is a live dvd.

      OpenMeetings have the means to help users just have to show them and remind them,
      For it would be wise to remember every three weeks or so, where they can get the iso
      live dvd through a post on the list, that with your permission i will write.

      These are ideas only.

      I have an image composition that show how can look the main page with a logo.
      Send to you by mail because here is no way tu upload.

      Thank you!

        I have attached your ZIP, you can do it too ... in the main menu of each Issue > More Actions > Attach Files

        I have reviewed your logos, however I think if there is a new logo it should actually replace the current one.
        The current logo is "Apache OpenMeetings" + the "Apache-feather" on the top - left. So if there is a new logo there should be only one. Also the Logo has to include the "Apache" style pr text somehow, see for example the new "Apache Flex" logo: http://incubator.apache.org/flex/ or their other proposals: http://incubator.apache.org/flex/logo-contest.html

        I think on the current white space on the top-right of the incubator website there should be some popular links, for example: Demo-Server / Downloads / Jira / Source

        And we could make some stylish buttons for the links. However I had no tmie yet to make such stylish buttons.

        We should also then discuss which main colors to use.
        Currently the main menu has the colors: #1484E6, #2293F7, #000088

        The color #000088 is the connection between the color of the menu and the color of the Apache Feather.

        In that sense a potential restyle of the logo would affect the whole website. So if we are going to change the logo the rest of the website has to fit with the logo.

        Potential buttons for the top right bar also should either contrast nicely to those colors or be inline ... OR we completely change everything based on a new logo ... everything is possible however it needs to be co-ordinated.

        Thanks!
        Sebastian

        Hi all!

        Sebastian, attached somes images that
        could be a possible way for the Apache
        OpenMeetings web.

        The name OpenMeetings is a little too long
        to build a small logo, therefore is divided
        by two parts that are joined by a litte
        column of cristal.

        Please tell me where to change it or if this
        is not the way you likes.

        The attached file called:

        OpenMeetings-Apache-web.zip

        Thanks!

        Alvaro

        Hi Alvaro,

        thanks for the screenshots!

        Please compare also other Apache projects:
        http://tomcat.apache.org/
        http://httpd.apache.org/
        http://hadoop.apache.org/

        Of course you might argue that those other projects might just have bad visual web-designers, however our project has to fit into the "Apache world" somehow.

        If you think that we should put a orange header on top you have to give us very good arguments. I am a bit conservative, My point of view is: Design follows Function
        That orange is kind of an alarm color and I don't see a connection where this Orange is comming from.
        You can find for example nice colors that fit together with that application: http://kuler.adobe.com/

        Please keep also in mind that we will need to re-style the whole Openmeetings Application according to our website, so that everything:
        OpenMeetings Website and OpenMeetings Application has the same Look and Feel. If that orange is going to stay here we will need to put it into our application too.

        For the Logo I would suggest that you remove the square between N and M
        Also we should discuss what the green flower in the logo is exactly ... if we put it into the logo it has to have a meaning.
        That is why lots of Apache projects put the "Apache Feather" into the logo as this feather is the official logo of the ASF.
        We have no official icon or logo yet (so we instead use the feather)

        Hope that helps
        Sebastian

        Hi all,

        Attached a new Apache OpenMeetings logo.

        The Apaches knew and respected Nature
        it gave the green of weed and water their
        horses and food his creatures.

        If we care for nature, she take care of us.

        That is the mean of the green weed in the
        logo.

        Continue improving it.

        Please Sebastian, tell me what you dont like
        or if you prefer some color...?

        The file uploaded called:

        Logo_Apache_OpenMeetings-2.zip
