Thanks Zwopper. Yes, even if this discussion is six years old now, it is more relevant than ever. Today, Linux Mint is the (probably) most popular Linux OS out there. From a communicators standpoint, I can not see any real consistent graphical idea - which is not the best thing. The only consistent element is the old logo (which by the way is fine*). But when it comes to colors, fonts and other things, it is somewhat messy. The "brand" of Linux Mint could be more stabile and strong.
Sure, green as color is used. But what green? I see different greens in different places and channels, as long as they are fairly "minty". Unified font used in the different channels? Can't see it.
You shoud feel that you are in the "Linux Mint-world", regardless if your in the OS, the website, the forum, the community webb, if you read a manual, and so forth. Today it's a mish-mash.
It would be nice to hear the Mint teams thoughts on this. Maybe they are already working according to something similar? Or maybe this is not something they give priority to? Regardless, IMHO it should be discussed at least.
PS. Fun to see this discussion with todays eyes
* When it comes to the logotype, actually today it is so established among people so im not sure it is the best idea anymore to completely change it. Maybe tweak it a Little, but try to keep the essential look. Unless the Mint Team has a completely new direction for Linux Mint, when it comes to the visual appearence.
