[GRASS-dev] New splash screen for GRASS GIS 7?

Just a word of caution: Not long ago (2011 (http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2011-August/015791.html) or 2013 (http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2013-May/026008.html))  the QGIS-project had a (long) logo discussion too.
Quite some resources were used (in terms of developer- and user-time) on creating logo proposals and polls (a kind of logo-contest in several rounds) as well as discussing proposals in several threads. At the end – if I am not mistaken – the project ended up with using more or less the old logo…

Good initiative.. For a decision to be taken (if there are enough quality proposals for the tagline, logo and the splash screen), would it be an idea to invite GRASS users to vote (as was already proposed before - so perhaps something is already in place)? A simple/easy way could be a poll on the GRASS GIS Google+ page, and people could be invited via the email list. Anyway,just though it could be nice to get 'the user community' to pick from a selection.

Thanks Vincent. This is conceptually along the lines I was thinking, but better thought out and presented by you.

The image on the splash screen should follow the same logic: display the logo and tag line, use the color green, and visually reinforce the message in the tag line.

So far, the tag lines proposed have all included the concepts of GIS or digital mapping ("geospatial technology") and universality (“world", “everyone").

I packed most of the graphical tests I did last week on a wiki page. I
tried to initiate a place (very rough yet) where we can further set up
things concerning graphical identity. Hope this helps.
