A layout proposal for Debian 7 "wheezy" based on the Toy Stoy character it is referring to. Even if I drew the character myself I was told it would lead to copyright issues. (So I guess this proposal can't be made available in the end.) I used the traditional Debian blue-magenta color range and referred to the idea of ?JossMouette's Music proposal concerning the (in my case empty) musical score lines.

I would do images for various additional media if there is enough interest in this basic concept layout.

I adapted Ulrich Hansen's souce files for his great proposal The Journey for my screen presantation files.

Install CD cover


I altered the text for the CD cover taken from Ulrichs proposal because I think most people wouldn't understand most of the technical detail on it. I have replaced some of it with less technical descriptions.

I claim that Debian is equipped with award winning applications. I have to admit, that I didn't check this promise, but would be very surprised if it wasn't true - at least for some flag ship applications.

Install CD label



If wanted I can provide all SVG source files. (Some of my SVGs are depending on linked images. Therefore I need to change that before they actually can be useful to anyone else.)


I used Charis SIL and Alte Haas Grotesk for this Layouts.
