Artwork for Fedora 12 Alpha

One day after the scheduled deadline we gathered a healthy amount of design concepts for Fedora 12 (there may be a couple more getting today as an exception, but that is all).

[f12 themes]

The next step is to polish them a bit and package for the Alpha release, put the graphics in the hand of as many users as possible and receive the much needed early feedback, helping us to improve and not repeat the unfortunate situation from F11, when the graphics were changed very late in the process, post-Beta (well, seeing the concepts we have so far, I am qute confident this won't happen).

So please have a look at the graphic concepts and make your voice heard.

  2. My only suggestion is to make the slideshow wallpapers much more extreme at points. Infinity was awesome because it had very distinct shades of purple and navy at different times of the day. Since then, things have largely been the same shade of blue at all times. Getting a bit blue oversaturated by now. :)

  3. Ah, I really love the underwater mosaics:

    They are great wallpapers, while the first one may fit better because it's more blueish like the former wallpapers. I'm using it as my wallpaper now and it looks really nice. And now I have to grab a drink, they really made me thirsty :-)

  5. I think I should mention once again those are in conceptual state and will/may change until the final version. So if useful to also know why people like/hate some of them.

  7. I like a lot the lotus and the underwater mosaic.
    I would just add that it would be good to make those lotus a little smaller. You guys from the artwork team may have big screens but think of the guy who has an old 1024*768, as with the lion in F11 it will full his screen.

  8. @Toinou87: in addition to the 20" display on the desktop i have an 1024x600 netbook myself... when you use a small resolution you don't use the large wallpaper but a resized one.

  10. @nicu: I use resized wallpapers of course ^^. But (for that matter) even if I think that leonidas lion was an awesome work, I think that it fills too much of the screen if you have less than a 20". I mean if you are used to have some icons, plasmoids (or whatever) on your desktop, after a few columns the lion is under it.

    But once again, I love what you guys are doing, it's really impressive, I just wanted to share my concerns. Just look at F7 artwork, it used a third of the screen and was "lengendary" ^^

    Though I can't wait for F12 because all of these wallpapers are really beautiful
