  37. ralphm Did a rough design for a banner that I might still order today for FOSDEM
  38. ralphm https://upload.ik.nu/upload/eskKLYi1N2-YT60a/XMPP_banner.pdf
  39. ralphm Comments?
  40. Licaon_Kter Who chose the font? :)
  41. jonas’ "better than nothing"
  42. Licaon_Kter OSPDSEF FTW!!!
  43. ralphm Licaon_Kter, the font is from the same family as the "XMPP" in our logo
  44. ralphm jonas’, heh. That's high praise, I'm sure.
  45. jonas’ ralphm, I see a few things which seem odd to me, but I realize that we don’t have the time to bikeshed the design now :)
  46. jonas’ so kudos for doing this, I think it’s good to have
  47. ralphm jonas’, I can still change a few things around
  48. jonas’ it is a rough design, and given the parameters, it turned out well
  49. ralphm jonas’, so any input is welcome
  50. jonas’ ralphm, I’d start with double-checking the left-aligning of the words on the left
  51. jonas’ they seem slightly ragged, but that may be my renderer, too
  52. jonas’ they seem slightly ragged, but that may be my renderer (firefox, *sigh*), too
  53. ralphm Hmm, they should be perfectly aligned. Let me check
  54. jonas’ also, I’m not sure how readable the font really is on that scale. what Licaon_Kter alluded to is also slightly weird to me. maybe we need enumeration symbols (arrows?) in front of the left words
  55. jonas’ more non-word content would be great, but that’s not easy to get
  56. jonas’ icons for each of the "bullet points" on the left would be a fantastic start
  57. ralphm And what about the words on the right then? They are currently right-aligned.
  58. jonas’ beyond that, converting the list to a grid (possibly dropping extensible in favour of flexible or vice-versa to make it 2x3) each with a larger icon would be my next suggestion
  59. jonas’ ralphm, I don’t know about those at all
  60. jonas’ they are hard to read, too, due to the alignment, but again that might be different at scale
  61. ralphm I took the left words from https://xmpp.org/about/technology-overview.html
  62. jonas’ ralphm, how about re-ordering the left words so that their length more closely matches up with the curve of the logo part in the background?
  63. jonas’ (same for the right hand side)
  64. ralphm Heh, I haven't considered that.
  65. ralphm https://upload.ik.nu/upload/tATjf6SeZsOKsB5i/XMPP_banner_length_ordered.pdf
  66. ralphm jonas’, did you mean like this?
  67. jonas’ yes
  68. jonas’ not sure if it’s better tho
  69. vanitasvitae has left
  70. jonas’ try moving the words so that they align with the bottom part of the horns instead of the upper tip
  71. vanitasvitae has joined
  72. ralphm I tried this but it looks weird(er)
  73. ralphm Instead I tried aligning with the lower corner of the top of the swoosh
  74. ralphm https://upload.ik.nu/upload/wkmO5k1WaZTLUoqI/XMPP_banner_3.pdf
  75. ralphm I like that better
  76. ralphm Nÿco, Guus, SouL, should you have comments, let me know.
  77. intosi has joined
  78. intosi Somehow, the W touching the tip of the horn looks a bit weird, but _3 looks best of the three.
  79. jonas’ ralphm, I, too, like it better
  80. jonas’ what intosi says though, maybe reduce the horizontal margins for the text slightly?
  81. jonas’ so that the W doesn’t touch directly

  84. Guus I don't have a strong preference. Thanks for doing this!

  114. Nÿco > Did a rough design for a banner that I might still order today for FOSDEM > https://upload.ik.nu/upload/eskKLYi1N2-YT60a/XMPP_banner.pdf > Comments? I would s/Decentralized/Federated/ because we are using federation which only is one specific decentralisation pattern
  115. Nÿco otherwise, it's awesome, thx for this!
  116. Nÿco Licaon_Kter yes, mistakes were made, sorry... /me is punishing himself :)
  117. ralphm Nÿco: I understand your point, but Federation appears to mean different things to different people.
  118. ralphm And I just took what we have on our website now.

  121. Nÿco Fine
  122. Nÿco between what's technically precise and correct... and what people perceive/understand, well huh... that :)
  123. Nÿco in my experience, on the French market, federation seems a bit better, as decentralise does now belong to the blockchain realm
  124. Nÿco the banner's gonna rock anyway, thx!
  125. Nÿco bedankt
  126. ralphm Thanks!

  130. ralphm There are a few left from last year. Nobody worked on new ones.
  131. arnaudj I can actually see myself wearing last year's model!
