Artwork for Buster has been selected, it's futurePrototype by Alex Makas.

Call for proposals

Buster, the code name of the next Debian release, is a character from the film "Toy Story" (Buster)

For the next Debian release, version 10.0, the Debian Project is calling for graphics and other artwork to be submitted as proposals for the look and feel of the operating system.

As with everything else in Debian, collecting artwork is a collaborative effort which Debian shares with its community. That means that you can be the one preparing the Buster Artwork!

This wiki page collects proposals and submissions from the Debian community and you're encouraged to add here your own proposal.

Submit your proposal

  1. Read the requirements and the call for proposals.

  2. Create a wiki page with your proposal/artwork:

  3. When done, add your proposal/artwork to this page

  4. For meetings and exchanging ideas and concepts there is the #debian-desktop channel on and the mailing list. The more the interaction, the better! There will be a voting process for designs submitted so it is highly recommended that you keep up with the mailing list and IRC channel discussions to monitor if your proposal gets selected.
