The Visual Design Group is prepared. Tomorrow evening we're having our first proper meeting where we'll split up the most urgent tasks between us and assign contacts to everyone. There are six of us now (plus a few contacts) and the hope is that you will see the work and want to join in a few months.
Elena Ramirez is a talented webdesigner and sometimes illustrator who helped KDE finish the look for http://edu.kde.org/ who works out of Seville.
Fabian Bornschein who is a student from Germany and an active Kubuntu group member on Google + with a passion for theming (I suggest you all check out his Tilain Plasma Theme btw).
Malcer Quaid who is a designer who's creations include the famous Caledonia plasma theme and who's been active with Chakra Linux for a long time.
David Brandl is a professional webdesigner from Germany with an extensive background in KDE and Open Source.
Nuno Pinheiro needs no introduction as he is the "Grand Ole Man" of KDE design and one of the creators behind the Oxygen icon theme.
Me (Jens Reuterberg) I'm a freelance illustrator and Graphics Designer with experience from AD-work from Sweden who promised my soul to KDE for a year this january.
More detailed introductions and a short interview with every member will come shortly.
Right now there are plenty of things underway and so very little time to do it - if you feel that you should be on this list. If you think that you can contribute work to KDE. If you're passionate about Open Source in general but KDE and Design in specific - dont hesitate a second to contact me on jens [at] ohyran [dot] se.
I cannot promise gold, half the kingdom and the princess/prince hand in marriage - but I can promise that this will be something you'll write on your CV in the future in big bold letters. This is something you will brag about in the future.
Do you know a designer who needs a leg up, an artistic talent that deserves to get their hands dirty? Then keep an eye out on this blog.
Also: coming soon - more technical and specifics of the design work being done!
