Currently the graphics are one of the weakest part of GCompris, as they were mostly done by the developers, using free graphics assets and sparse graphic artist contributions.
To address this problem, we found Timothée Giet, a talented graphic artist interested in working on a complete graphics redesign. He is a long standing Free-Software contributor, active member of the Krita team and so part of the KDE community. Making new graphics for more than 100 activities is a big work, so we need your help to achieve this goal.
The project is not only about creating new background images but consists in a whole graphical rework. At first a graphic charter will be defined as none exists for now in GCompris. This will drive the project towards a unified style that it lacks today An emphasis will be done on usability, making sure the children find their way easily in each activity.
