Iconic design applied in a table cloth and brochure

There were some excited things happened to me, I must write it in blog to share with you all.

One thing is my iconic design for GNOME VI somehow becoming used! when Emily asking me to design a tab page for COSCUP, it’s the first chance I put the icons be used. Although I was only retouched a poster based on an original (because time is so short, and I real like the original design), but when I put a lager cloud behind the little robot, I felling as happy as the little robot:) here you can find the editable svg sources.

Later I applying icons to a table cloth, which will be used in the Desktop Summit.

I have to say my mentor Andreas Nilsson gives me the important help which he always encourage me when I showing him my design. “I really like these. I love the footer!” some times he will say:)

I have to soon later follow up a blog post with more complete and integrate description of the visual identity  for feedback and comment.

Advocating OPW in Mozilla China’s office

I was invited to talk about OPW and my OPW experience in a communitty memeber gather-together event co-organized by Beijing GNOME user group and Mozillla China.

* The location: Mozilla China office lies in the heart of Beijing. Besides office building they have a special room just for activities, with lovely Firefox mascot and Firefox carpet.
* Our hostess is a girl, and besides her, one guest, one speaker (me). Everyone else are boys. I joke with them about lack of female in the group.
* All other talkes are highly technical.
* I spoke of having done some VI work, people then gets excited. They started to talk about VI plug-ins until they realize it’s about visual identity:)
