Consistency is indeed very important. If we would just sketch up dozens of
designs, they could very well be just placed in some artwork gallery without
further meaning.

The designs we are looking for are designs that show the world we are talking
about Gentoo and that Gentoo is a professional project/distribution. Not some
hacked up version based on RedHat like the majority of distributions.
Choices are good, but when it comes down to public relations and visibility,
we must make sure that it is consistent with one another.

This is not only true for designs but also other material (press maps,
presentations, website, ...).

To answer your question: of course submissions/suggestions are encouraged!

Wkr,
