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.
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.
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 would like to work on this task.
Is the purpose of the poster(s) to advertise GCI/GSoC, or mainly FreeBSD? To advertise well for GCI/GSoC, I would include the logos of the other participating projects, so that those interested in GCI/GSoC would know those projects are interested and they could work with them too. Thanks.
This task has been assigned to Violet Lin. You have 192 hours to complete this task, good luck!
We'd like to advertise FreeBSD presence in GSOC/GCIN.
In the perfect case, you'd deliver a template, which could have GSOC/GCIN
logos replaced with each other, and which would have FreeBSD always.
Imagine a poster explaining what FreeBSD is (briefly), and what GSOC/GCIN
is (briefly), and some information about events.
In other words: we want to show, that FreeBSD as a project participates in
these events and we want to encourage people to get to know FreeBSD more.
I have attached a black-and-white and coloured version of the template poster for the Google Code-In poster. I have yet to do one for GSoC, but I was wondering if this was the kind of thing you were looking for. Thanks~
and sorry about the i being off the page; I am just asking right now if this is what you're looking for.
The work on this task is ready to be reviewed.
Congratulations, this task has been completed successfully.
