Oh wow that is *great* thank you for working on this :)

I think we should follow the PDF and combine keep it really simple:

- follows the he logotype page
- all the dos and don't examples ...

- if it uses the OSGeo logo mark with some different text
- keeping the Logomark unmodified is what makes it a sub-brand :)
- This is the default option allowing a group to produce a logo using the
provided template

Distinct brand:
- Uses its own logomark
- Totally fine to contains some design callbacks as with GeoForAll colors,
or OSGeo live design elements
- we should probably try and keep the font consistent at least :)
- Allows a lot more creative freedom

> Hi all,
> Greetings from the FOSS4G-Asia code sprint in Colombo, Sri Lanka !
> Taking advantage of this session to finally wrap up and publish a very
> first version of the OSGeo style guide as HTML.
> This is an entry point to our branding material, aimed at providing
> guidelines in a more accessible way (only PDF is available for now).
> A preview of the style guide is available here:
> https://nbozon.github.io/OSGeo/styleguide/
> Code is available here:
> https://github.com/nbozon/osgeo/tree/OSGeo-styleguide/marketing/branding/styleguide
> This is built on top of mdwiki
> <http://dynalon.github.io/mdwiki/#!index.md>, using markdown as a simple
> structure, rendered with Javascript only.
> As markdown styling capabilities are limited, you may notice that i had to
> include quite a bit of inline HTML to make it work and meet the guidelines
> (for proper use of fonts, colors, reponsive images...). A specific CSS file
> was also written with love to make it as shiny as possible :)
> This is a first version that needs your feedbacks and remarks to be
> completed. I hope we as Marketing Committee can work together to review,
> correct, enhance and make it live.
> Please review and comment on the dedicated PR available here:
> https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/pull/208
> The initial idea (discussed earlier this year with Jeffrey and Jody) would
> be to host this work on a subdomain such as https://brand.osgeo.org that
> should become the entry point to all the material and guidelines we have on
> Github. I would be happy to collaborate with Marketing and SAC to make this
> happen.
> Code sprint is coming to and end now, all ready for lunch !
> This was an awesome FOSS4G-Asia event this week, and i would like to
> deeply thank the Sri Lankan LOC again for the great work they did and
> perfect organization they provided.
> Best regards,
> Nick
