I have designed some CDROM-related artwork for FreeBSD (CDROM-labels, 
sleeves and DVD-cases). The first drafts were posted to the 
FreeBSD-advocacy-mailing-list on Sept 1st, and since then I have 
received some kind feedback that lead to some changes (see mailing-list 
archive). In particular I would like to thank (in totally random order) 
Matt Olander, Simon Nielsen, Don Witt, Dru Lavigne, Ceri Davies, Gábor 
Kövesdán, Remko Lodder, Dag-Erling Smørgrav and Eric Anderson for their 
kind feedback. All design-flaws and errors remain my own.

The resulting "final" versions of the artwork are here:

Some PNG thumbnails (30 dpi), 800KB:

Some larger PNG thumbnails (75 dpi), 2.9MB:

Full quality PNG images (300 dpi), 15MB:

Full quality JPEG images (300 dpi), 11MB:

PDF versions for easy printout, 9.2MB:

SVG and ODT sources for future modifications, 13.5MB:

I would be pleased if these material could be placed at the website 
(e.g. I would suggest to place a link 
to the artwork page in the downloads section, so that everyone who 
downloads an ISO-image can easily obtain the label and sleeve.

If you find this artwork useful, I will also create "6.2" versions for 
the upcoming release.

The logo and the logo-font are by Anton Gural.
The colour palette is taken from Anton Gurals design-studies (but 
slightly modified).
The text is taken from the FreeBSD-website.
The remaining artwork is by me. I hereby donate my part of the artwork 
to the FreeBSD project, so you may use and distribute it under any 
license you may choose, e.g. under the BSD-license (you may even place 
it in the Public Domain). Unless the FreeBSD project chooses some other 
license, the FreeBSD license 
( applies. It 
would be nice if you give me some credit, but that's not legaly required.

If you have any questions, comments or requests, please drop me a line.

Best regards,
Peer Schaefer
