Project Name Project Description Type of Art Needed Contact Artists Involved Additional Information
the title/name of your project a basic description of your project what kind of art you want (icons? character art? illustrations?) who to contact (link to user page suggested) tell us who's working on it, so people can communicate anything else you want to say
Review Squad icon Need a visual image that means "Review squad", our cadre of kid reviewers/testers (for both software and content). simple icon Mel Chua Nobody yet. Please take this task! What we really need is a fifth "icon" (like the four "1" "laptop" "arrow" "xo" icons on the front of laptop.org) to denote "Review squad," a kid reviewing something. Perhaps the "xo" icon wearing a baseball cap, with lightbulb over their head, or pencil in hand?
Review Squad wikipage banner Make a "splash banner" logo for the Review squad (for an example of a splash banner with text below it, look here - we want a similar picture w/o the text) wikipage banner Mel Chua Nobody yet. Please take this task! Needs review squad icon, above. It will be easy to make the logo/banner from there.
Review Squad OBX Make an OBX for Review squad members to place on their userpages. OBX Mel Chua Nobody yet. Please take this task! Should use the "Review squad" icon from the "Review squad icon" task above.
Review Squad webpage badges Make little (static, animated, whatever) badges that people can put on their webpages to show membership in or support of the OLPC review squads. small webpage badges Mel Chua Nobody yet. Please take this task! Should use the "Review squad" icon from the "Review squad icon" task above. There should be at least two badges - one for Review squad members (kids, under 18) and one for supporters, maybe a "Member of the OLPC Review Squad" and a "Join the OLPC Review Squad" one, respectively.
Summer of Content logo/shirt Make a logo for the Summer of content 2007 program, and a t-shirt design (they can be the same thing, or we can put some kind of witty quote on the back of the t-shirt, or they can be two separate things, or whatever). Estimated work time < 6hr total including discussions, editing, and tweaking. Logo and shirt design. Vector graphics preferred, t-shirt design should use 3 colors or less if possible (bonus points for good-lookin' monochrome!) Mel Chua I can do it. Anyone who has ideas or wants to collaborate can hit my talk page, though!--Nikki This is time-sensitive; we need the task finished before July 20, 2007. The Google Summer of Code logo looks like this. This logo will be used for everything in the Summer of Content 2007 program - and possibly the SoCon program in general, and the T-shirt will be printed and sent out to the 100-odd mentors and interns working this summer, so w00t. We'll send you one, too.
T-shirts Wearable advertising to attract potential volunteers T-shirt designs and art MitchellNCharity 11:59, 13 July 2007 (EDT) you! :)
background creation create backgrounds for games, so that game developers will have a database of game backgrounds vector art would probably work well for this, but I leave it to your discretion Nikki or Mel everyone and anyone: Ongoing Community Art Projects
resource creation Create a collection of coin and bill images, from all the trial-2 Countries(green), as a resource for Activities. Searching out images on the web, and basic image processing to prepare them for use. MitchellNCharity 10:32, 8 July 2007 (EDT) Nikki Bills are usually easy. Coin images, if they haven't been already, need to be clipped to the coin (no border), and the background made transparent. PNG being the ideal format. See also User:MitchellNCharity#Content: Images of currency - coins and bills/notes.
VisionScreeningDemo visual acuity and other tests for vision screening toolbar icons: 'left eye covered', 'right eye covered', 'both eyes uncovered'. MitchellNCharity 10:24, 24 June 2007 (EDT) none Perhaps come by #olpc-content and chat.
support for activity programmers and artists assist creation of iso-luminance palettes Find FOSS Lab or Munsell color pickers. And/or create tables of iso-luminance colors. MitchellNCharity 10:20, 24 June 2007 (EDT) none I want colorful activities. One obstacle is finding color values. Eg, "ok, I want a 128 gray line in direct sunlight, but I'd like it purple in color. What's the rgb value of a purple which becomes 128 gray in mono?". For tables, maybe {192,128,64,"very light, just a tint"} gray? In a few hues? Though finding a picker might be easier? Or am I missing something, and this is all easy if you just do foo?

Xavi points out Munsell! With a palette! :) Which helps, but a richer palette would be nice. We don't need to use Munsell's colorspace-smushing coordinates.

Display now has a code snippet which takes a gray-level, plus rgb, and returns a similar rgb which has roughly the given gray level.

There is also a Munsell color table in the sugar source. I'm not sure if it's a duplicate of the one in Munsell or not.

olpc wiki Create a video, composed of existing footage, selected for appeal to educators. To draw them in, and help build up the olpc educator community. video - clip selection, gathering and assembly. Finding good footage doesn't require editing skills, so that could be a separate task. MitchellNCharity 17:53, 21 June 2007 (EDT) none There is a lot of olpc-related video footage. Almost all unedited. When watching it, I think "oh, I wish I could show teacher friends that minute of that talk, and those seconds over there, and...". A video composed of these, perhaps posted in Educators, might help build up the educator community.
