Status: Closed Time to complete: 240 hrs Mentors: Wojciech A. Koszek, Jakub Klama Tags: pdf, poster, advertising, freebsd, gimp

Description of a task

The purpose of this task is to advertise Google Open Source programs among young people and college students.

Participant will create a template of a poster for advertising FreeBSD in the context of Google Code-In and Google Summer of Code programmes. The poster must be ready to be sticked to the university's front door. It must be something very easy to read and simple (simple as in 'Artistic minimalism' not as 'Do this task as quickly as possible').

The poster must be something you would like to see on your own school's wall with advertisements.

Technical proposal

You must create a layout (preferably white, since it always plays nicely with other colors) which will be able to accomodate two logos: GCIN/GSoC logo and FreeBSD logo.

Sample logos

Logo must be easily replacable. Think of your template to be used over next 5 years. We must be able to take the template, be able to copy & paste new logos for 2014 and render it nicely. In other words: your template to be valuable must be reusable.

Mentor of this project is not a judge. Use your own imagination. The poster layout must be practical. Look at previous GCIN/GSoC logos. Take a look at their sizes (they vary). Take a look at colors (they vary too). Come up with something attractive.

Participant must be fluent in GIMP or any other FREE graphics program. She/he must be technically skilled and artistically talented.

I need to create two posters, one for Google Code In , and one for Summer of Code or i need to make one that contains both??

This task has been assigned to mpaloski. You have 240 hours to complete this task, good luck!

Wojciech A. Koszek on November 29 2011 21:58 UTC Only one skeleton needed



You're fine with just 1 poster.


Google Code-In and Summer of Code programmes are quite similar.

If possible, think of providing a poster, which may have event's logo replaced

and which will make poster looks equally well.


In other words: if you can deliver a template, which looks cool with 2 different

logos, it would be most perfect. 


Otherwise, please prepare the poster for 1 event only. Pick which event you
