I'm going to post on the DeviantART account about this... I think that
it would be a good opportunity for people to contribute back to the
project. I will make it known that we are accepting submissions from
other sources other than DA, so people don't get their hopes up... but I
do have to say that the attention that account has gotten is truly
phenomenal. In the end the submission that gets chosen will make some
artist pretty proud, given the fact that it will be on our website.
My Q, is should we just make it a header graphic for the website? Or
should we maybe propose people also contribute the text portion to our
logo? Meaning, we have an inkscape logo, but don't have set lettering or
fonts for the word Inkscape itself... which is a pretty common practice
with all software (the text logo & symbol logo).
Let me know so I can post it. Thanks!
