It's me, the guy from Costa Rica. I was thinking the same a couple of weeks
ago. I installed the alpha release and noticed that the pictures were the
same. I have some ideas and I think I can help with some designs (or at
least, prototypes). But I need the grid and the Mageia logo in SVG format.
Where can I find them?

> Hi guys,
> You may know that Mageia's installer shows some promotional pictures
> during the installation[1], which are supposed to demonstrate the main
> characteristics and assets of Mageia. For Mageia 1, a contributor took
> the time to design a few pictures to promote some aspects of Mageia,
> and these are still shown in the installer of Mageia 2 beta 1.
> Now, it would be good for Mageia 2's look that we design some new

> together to come with a bunch of pretty professional-looking pictures

> The fact is, artwork freeze is on March, 10th, i.e. in a bit more than
> two weeks. So we need to decide what we want to do, who will do it and
> using which resources and content.
> So, what are your ideas for these pictures?
> I had an initial idea, but you may find better ones. I thought that we

> Mageia[2], i.e.:
> - Mageia is social software
> - Mageia is powerful technology
> - Mageia is knowledge
> - Mageia is quality
> - Mageia is open relations
> I have no idea about how these key points could be conveyed through
> artwork, but it could give us hints for the content.
> There could be other possibilities, such as promoting the content
> included in the distribution and the repositories: Mageia Control
> Center, LibreOffice, latest version of KDE, powerful IDEs, awesome
> games such as Battle for Wesnoth, etc..
> We could also focus on the community, displaying small overviews of
> the work of some of our teams, etc..
> So, what are your ideas?
