Hello everyone,

My name is Ivan, and I am (or try to be) an active member of the Art and Website projects. The biggest contribution I have made to OOo so far has been as the lead designer of the OOo website during the 2007 redesign and the Project Renaissance logo, and I hope to do much more in the future as my skill set increases.

A little bit about me: I'm 20, live in New Zealand and will soon be starting the final year of my BA/BSc conjoint majoring in Computer Science & Psychology under Science; Sociology & English under Arts. I also have a website, where I ramble too much but not often enough.

Current Tasks


  • Discussing the prospects of a new project that would handle OOo's branding/visual identity

Mailing Lists


  • Website
  • Art

Less Frequently

  • User Experience (UX)
  • Native Language
  • Marketing

Completed Tasks


UX Ideas

Visual Design Ideas

  • Complete redesign with OOo 4... (website, splash screen, etc)
  • Implement an attractive design for Help pages to improve readability - ask about the rendering engine behind the help pages (HTML?) and its capacities (if there is an HTML engine, it could be used to power the dashboard)
  • Enable transparency on the splash screen
  • Application background (something less dreary) as Johannes Eva has noted
  • Visual Design i-Team to represent branding/identity
  • Improve the Galaxy print icon
  • Clip art gallery and online download functionality
  • Visual identity/design blog to inform people of what's going on in the project (both inside OOo and outside it)
