After making a new analysis more in detail, by interacting colour logo
type with our mascots, and although always emphasis to highlight the
purple colour in all wallpapers, branding that were done, I have come to
the conclusion just as coadde and Emulatorman did, that in some words,
we should remain with the initial colour with which so far has used.

As can be seen in this second material we sent you, from my point of
view it is evident that the colour logo should not compete with the
characters, and vice-versa. Perhaps a proof that there is an implicit
harmony in this form of interaction of colours, is the unanimous
acceptance of the our community that we have witnessed so far.

In another sense, with respect to the development of wallpapers,
cartoons, branding, etc, in art there is what is commonly called "poetic
license" which allows us, in a sense, of course respecting the main
bases of artistic development, it allows us to cite one example, make
wallpapers with the logo of Parabola flying among the clouds with light
shades of bright colours in the logo, which enhances more the spectacle
of a beautiful sunset.

Therefore, and despite my constant preoccupation with violet tones, I
must admit that it may be better let the current color composition as so
far been used always in our distro.


P.S: I'm sending you our analysis more in detail made by coadde and me
about the colours in our logo and mascots. [0][1][2]
