Linux Mint graphic ad for websites

Post by mesanna » Tue May 26, 2009 5:37 pm

Hi, I'm wondering if Mint has any kind of graphic that could be put, for example, on a wordpress blog. In the run up to Ubuntu Jaunty's release, they had a pic that counted down the days until release and now just says "Ubuntu 9.04 It's here". (You can see an example on my site at http://mesanna.com)

I release it's too late of course for the countdown but wonder if Mint has any kind of smallish "Get Mint" type of graphic. I had a look in some of the artwork but didn't really see anything (unless I'm being blind and dumb - always a possibility :D )

I'd love to put something like that on my blog and, while I could probably create something myself, I just wondered if there was anything out there already.

Thanks.

Thanks, it just seems like a really simple and effective way to promote Mint and get the name out there.

I've had a play about with a blog graphic to link to the Mint site and I've inserted below what I've come up with. I've used the official logo plus the darker version of the official wallpaper that Zwopper created, see http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=26182 . Please let me know what you think (I'm not really a graphic artist :D )

I'm going to use this on my site for now but I'd be interested to see if anyone else can come up with something better.
