Icon Design Contest!

Hi all, we’ll still working away on some very cool stuff - to be released soon. If you’re interested, please take a look at the 0.4.2 branch in svn.

In the process of getting the new stuff ready for release, I realized/remembered I wasn’t too thrilled with the current icon & panel applet. My design/inkscape skills only went so far, and it’s time for mumbles to get a design upgrade.

So if you or anyone you know would like to contribute to the project, I invite you to break out your favorite vector graphics program and enter the mumbles icon design contest! Have an artist friend? Please pass this post on and encourage them to submit an entry!

We will be creating some mumbles t-shirts for the new release and would very much like to have a new icon for them. The winner of the contest, on top of the very prestigious credit in the mumbles contributor list, will receive a free t-shirt.

Icon, must be a svg file and have a compatible license to be release as part of the mumbles project. Otherwise we’re open to design choices, though using colors from the mumbles website/existing icons (tango compatible) is encouraged.

Winner will be chosen using any combination of: my opinion, irc discussion, picking out of a hat, or whatever means we find useful. Depending on the number of submission, a public vote to decide the winner may also be held. Please email your contributions to dot_j (at this domain). Deadline for submission will be Oct 20th with the winner to be announced shortly after.
