Hey Marketing folks,

I wanted to run something by you.

We, the FOSS4G Boston 2017 LOC are working on producing USB drives with
Academic conference proceedings and OSGeo Live content. I am in the process
of getting the final quotes and putting together some designs. I would like
to use the following logos on the outside of the drive:


This design has our logo, the new logo of OSGeo but does not have the OSGeo
Live Logo.

1) Is it ok that we use the new OSGeo logo?
2) Is it ok that we don't use an OSGeo Live Logo?

There is not a lot of space for logos and since this usb is being created
for this specific event and includes non-OSGeo Live content I think it is
more appropriate to use the OSGeo logo. Since OSGeo Live has their logo on
the desktop of their Lubuntu screen I believe that they will be correctly
attributed for their contribution to the drive.

If you think there is a better way to handle this please let me know and I
will do my best to set this up.

Thank you for your feedback,


p.s. I am sending this to the OSGeo Marketing group and to some of FOSS4G
team. My goal is to be open about what we are planning and do my best to
include input from the community in our branding efforts. Also, I hope that
Astrid will chime in as she is on both the Marketing and OSGeo Live teams.

p.p.s I am working with Astrid to get the next release of the OSGeo Live
image onto our FOSS4G drive, but there is a chance based on timing with our
vendor that we may not be able to wait for the next release.
