#508 Refreshed cover for "Getting Started with Fedora" handbook

Created a month ago by eischmann
Modified 2 days ago

I'm currently working on the second version of the "Getting Started with Fedora" handbook which should finally be translated to English as well. The first version was released almost two years ago and I think for the second release we should refresh it. The last one was done by @mleonova. And she should also have the source files. I'm only attaching a PDF.
The final outcome for our printing agency should be A5, with CMYK, 5mm bleed. But right now, we should only prepare a source file that can be translated and then converted to the final print PDF.

Deadline

I'd like to get the English version of the handbook out before Flock 2017.

Here's something that I put together in the last few days ago. I can prepare it in Scribus as well, but does anyone have any thoughts/ critiques about the design of it?

Hi Mary! Looks pretty good! I like the gradient in the background. I'd suggest using Fedora bubbles instead of just circles, what do you think? Also "by Fedora community" part is pretty important, because it is a work of a number of people, and we want to underline the community effort.

Hi sorry for the change in specifications, but the Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller suggested that the handbook should be branded for Fedora Workstation. By only "Fedora" we should only brand the project as a whole. And I agree.
That means we should use the Fedora Workstation logo and change Fedora to Fedora Workstation in the subtitle. This rebranding may require a complete overhaul, not only refreshment in the end.

@eischmann thanks for letting me know. Do you know where I can get an SVG format of the Workstation logos? I thought that I had the logo variants already, but I don't seem to have all of them. I put in a request through Logo/Usage Guidlines wiki for them but haven't heard back yet.

@maryshak1996 hey sorry, i had missed the initial logo request. I sent you the logo from the logo queue earlier this week but you can also take them from @mleonova's link.

Here's a version with the workstation logo, updated headings, and the "by Fedora Community" subhead. I kept the graphics as circles, to stay consistent with the circular shape of the workstation logo... @mleonova do you think that the circles work alright with logo change?
