Hello everyone,

My name is Ivan, and I am (or try to be) an active member of the Branding 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 2007-2008 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 21, live in New Zealand and am in my final year of a BA/BSc conjoint majoring in Computer Science, Psychology, Sociology and English.

Completed Tasks


UX Ideas

Visual Design Ideas

  • New fontwork (OOo's equivalent of WordArt)
  • 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)
  • Transparent, minimalist splash screen:
