Hack Week and Ideas!

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Hey everyone! Check out the brand new idea.opensuse.org website I’ve been working on (with the help of Jakub, Larry, and Nat)! We are officially launching it today, kicking off the first day of Hack Week.

Hack Week!

To see photos from around the globe of people participating in Hack Week, check out the Hack Week flickr group.

Also, make sure to Digg the site too. (:

Planet Hula theme

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

For anyone interested in the Planet Hula space theme I made a while back, you can grab a tarball of the version of Planet we used which also contains the theme.

I have also made a quick example page too, in case you’d like to remember what it looks like.

Planet Hula thumbnail

Notes: You can use this under the same license as Planet itself, provided you do not use the Hula logo itself nor the Hula name (both are included within, so you’ll need to do some very minor tweaks at the very least). Also, I think I did make a couple of tweaks since this version to make it play a little better on Internet Explorer. Consider this a beta release.

Funny, I shrunk the Jimmac

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

Here’s a photo of myself and Jakub Steiner, in Germany, where we (after finding the old towne shrink ray) are demonstrating the difference between 128×128 and 22×22 icons.

(If I have too much more the beer and cheese while here, I might stretch like a SVG icon.)

Beagle logo, in SVG

Friday, March 9th, 2007

Hey Kevin, the SVG of the Beagle logo is located at my Primates account. There are different variations of the Beagle graphic (optimized for different sizes), and also the custom Beagle text I designed too.

I should probably toss more SVGs of logos I’ve done for work in that directory, sometime.

Mono website

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

I haven’t mentioned it yet, but the Mono Project got a new website rather recently. It happened when I helped them upgrade to a new version of MediaWiki and then made a nice theme for their site. A bit of the content got rearranged too. All-in-all, it was a fun project and it was great working with Miguel to get the website design realized.

Bits of Tango clarification

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

Slashdot got it nearly right, but a bit wrong: the Tango Project is about unifying the Open Source desktop, but it isn’t by Steven Garrity and Jakub Steiner alone. Steven and Jakub presented it at the GNOME Summit in Boston over the weekend, but Rodney Dawes, Tuomas Kuosmanen, Anna Dirks (site currently down), and myself all had a lot to do with making it a reality. A few others helped out along the way too, such as Trae McCombs.

In addition, Tuomas recently posted on his blog a bit more about Tango: Remember, Tango is not “yet another theme”, what I am even more interested in is to really look outside our “Gnome/KDE/Whatever” sandbox and try to fix the overall user experience on “Linux Desktop” – we need to co-operate really. Unified look and feel is one step in that direction, and a logical one for me as an artist.

Also of note is Steven Garrity’s post and Jakub Steiner’s post.

Tango Project!

Monday, October 10th, 2005

In addition to BetterDesktop, the Tango Project has finally been announced!

The Tango Desktop Project exists to create a consistent user experience for free and Open Source software with graphical user interfaces.”


A few Tango-style icons

Jakub has a great post which explains Tango more in-depth.
