Stephen Compall has made a DotGNU posters project submission with
some very good ideas... I've moved his files out of the "incoming"
directory, i.e. you can get a quick view at and the meat of the matter at

I really like the new logo idea.  I think it's much better than
what we currently have.  As for the slogan, it's an interesting
thought, but we really should have something that either emphasises
freedom or a user benefit or both.  How about the following?

GNU Freedom for the Internet

Warm Greetings,

I have several ideas for posters/ads, some of which may actually be
implemented.  They share a common footer, because I see that as
boilerplate for my ideas; I would like your comments.  A tarball with

For those wanting a quick view or without the GIMP, a smaller PNG is
<>, with signature

It includes a half-baked slogan idea.  Enjoy, and give me feedback!  I

<ad target="users/developers" id="UI">
  <graphic of="xeyes looking straight down" />
  <title>"Service Stubs":</title>
  <subtitle><b><i>real</i></b> user interfaces</subtitle>

  Web mail, web news, web games.  Great idea, right?  No
  installing!....just click.  Wait.  Wait.  Click.  Wait.  "We're

  DotGNU offers <u>real user interfaces</u> that look just like your

  <graphic of="widget-ified versions of webapps" />
