  2. Graphics Specification and Guidance

    We should all be mindful as to the OiOS ultimate graphics goals whether from corporate sponsorship or individual graphics contributors. There are no end of artwork ideas and wonderful creations from all sorts of skills levels.However to focus ideas the following specifications have been identified after an extensive period of assessment.

    A summation of direction and marketing plan for Graphics formation guidance, would be as follows:


    Placement historic market segment : Enterprise Data Centres, SME (Small, Medium, size Enterprises) and Professional Users.

    Product offerings: Enterprise Server, Enterprise Desktop and Enterprise Cloudstation.

    Colours identified in these market segments : Blacks,Silver,Greys,White,and Mid range reds,on the colour wheel.

    Graphics outlooks : minimalistic,easily changeable (with low resource input), adaptable, and subject matter associated with sector.

    Scalable and identifiable for inclusion within tight confines of build (possibly maximum of 4 digits or logo space).

    Must be restful on the eyes for long periods of use but provide enough contrast for visually impaired users.


    When encouraging contributors it must be relevant to these guideline.

    Good example of theme suited for Oi :
