Hello everyone, My name is Miguel Boto, and i´m a communication designer student living in Lisbon, Portugal. I´ve been following OpenOffice.org marketing development and the art mailing list in particular for some time and have become interested in the proposals, issues and goals discussed by its members/contibutors regarding the branding and design/art subjects related to OpenOffice.org. Slowly i´ve started thinking and working around some of those problems/issues and even created some graphic material, but never made them public. It didn´t take too long to realize that i was really interested in all those challenges and that was time to do something about it. I´ve finally requested to join the art project on 16 Aug 2010 and i´m currently waiting my approval.
You can contact me trough the following mail: miguel.boto.openoffice[at]gmail.com
My motivations and interests are all related to Communication Design: branding, web and graphic design tasks/issues of OpenOffice.org. I´m particularly interested in the (re)brading Initiative of OpenOffice.org, the 10th anniversary event and related graphic material, adoption of the new branding guidelines to the NL Portuguese Project plus its specific needs and the NL Portuguese Website.
I´m currently subscribed to the following mailing lists:
Status | Work in Progress
I´m currently trying to find my way around the OpenOffice.org and OpenOffice.org Wiki sites/projects. Still have some documentation/pages to read and get acquainted with all the procedures regarding uploads, licenses and processes within OpenOffice.org. I´ve already subscribed to the mailing lists i´m interested to, created this user page, requested to join the art project and introduced myself in the mailing lists. I´m also exploring some ideas and creating graphic work related to specific issues (10th anniversary logo) and on going projects (new branding language and NL Portuguese needs/adoption) besides freely exploring some imagery related to OpenOffice.org 3 (the product) that may be used to create marketing artwork/materials.
