"The Pillars - FOSS.IN/2008 Collection"
Oxygen - Pillars of KDE

Solid - Pillars of KDE

Phonon - Pillars of KDE

Decibel - Pillars of KDE

Akonadi - Pillars of KDE

Nepomuk - Pillars of KDE

Plasma - Pillars of KDE

The journey to KDE 4 has been a long one, it is still on and has a long way to go. It has come a long way since the last major release KDE 3 on April 3, 2002. This journey involved many contributors - developers, artists, translators, sys-admins, technical writers, marketing dudes, bug-triagers, users and more. Many meetings, many sprints, many commits, many news articles later the KDE community released KDE 4.0 on January 11, 2008.

KDE 4 firmly stands on very strong foundations - Oxygen, Solid, Phonon, Decibel, Akonadi, Nepomuk, Plasma - also known as the "Pillars of KDE". So we ( KDE-India ) proudly present you the "Pillars of KDE" poster collection.

Like last year, these posters has been made by a good friend Kamaleshwar Morjal ( btw he used only inkscape for all his work ). The logos are of course the official logos made by the members of Oxygen and KDE-Artists team. The high resolutions version of the posters can be found on Anurag's Flickr account :). The desktop wallpaper versions will be put up soon.

So did you register for FOSS.IN/2008 yet? It is a wonderful FOSS event and you *got* to be present there to know what it experience it.

You forgot one

Nice collection, but you forgot the biggest and strongest pillar of them all: marble. :-)

Can you make another one with a higher viewpoint? Imagining the disc on which all of the logos lie, if it would be inclined a bit more, there would be less overlapping and thus less occlusion.

Re: Overlap

Hello! Thanks for your comments.
The idea was to highlight one logo at a time. The overlapping and occlusion was intended here. Point noted though. :)

Re: Overlap

Well, it's a nice idea. The highlighting is accounted for by the scaling, but the occlusion sadly makes it look very untidy. Perhaps it's also a question of scaling. I would like to see a version where only the front entry has the typography shown, and for the rest only the logo is shown.

Thank you

Thanks very much for your comments. I would also like to thank Nuno Pinheiro for providing us with and permitting us to use his vector art-work in the logos and the background for the KDE Indic Localisation poster. My deepest regards go also to everyone who's worked on the KDE pillars' logos.
Kudos to the KDE team. :)
