Recent activities related to CentOS Symbol redesign

The contrast issues related to CentOS Symbol redesign has been addressed with the following composition:

This design uses only two colors, the CentOS Purple (#a14F8C) and the CentOS White (#ffffff). The outer square is being considered an integral part of the symbol itself and must not be removed from it, to provide acceptable recognition on top of both dark and light backgrounds. From all the four CentOS colors available, the purple one seems to provide the best background neutrality.

Soureces related to this design are available at https://gitlab.com/areguera/centos-brand/-/tree/v2-centos-artwork-sig-issue-5 and you are welcome to contribute.

Tests related to size:

16x16 22x22 24x24 32x32 36x36 48x48 96x96

Recent actitivities related to CentOS word transition from Denmark to Montserrat typography

Issue 71: The images necessary to implement the transition from Denmark to Montserrat typography are already in the centos-logos repository, the upstream location used to build the centos-logo package. Please, see the content provided in release 90.7. Presently, the centos-package is built based on source release 90.4.

The Artwork SIG cannot make changes in the centos-logo spec. We only can update the upstream repository with the images you need, and tag the changes with a new version, so for a Red Hat developer to do the source version swift.

Recent actitivities related to website visual corrections

It has been reported an issues related lists.centos.org visual presentation. See https://github.com/CentOS/ansible-role-mailman/issues/15.

A redesign simplification is being considered to “flatten” the web site presentation using CentOS colors only.
