Logo's, flyers, posters and other graphics
All our artwork is in our GitHub repository. You can browse it via the GitHub website. Below a quick "how to download stuff" infographic.
Some things you might want to look at in GitHub:
- For a brochure/flyer look here.
- We have posters, the 'openSUSE is cool' series here is awesome but there is much more.
- openSUSE conference and summit materials are here.
- The insanely cool (and thus popular) openSUSE Old-Toad-Beer poster can be found here.
Some things not in Github or things which are especially useful can be found below, but remember: GitHub is the most up-to-date source of stuff!
Helping to translate the flyers etc
It would be appreciated if you help translate these things in your own language. For how to do that, see this how-to page.
We still need to improve the flyer situation - the artwork of them isn't great. Another idea is to follow what the FSFE does: They have this generic A5-sized double-sided flyer. They send that, with have a simple, only-branded (no text!) A5 piece of paper which fits in there to events. Then, the local people can print on the A5 what they need to communicate, put them in the flyer - BAM. Up to date, yet properly branded.
A brilliant idea which I just wanted to put here so we don't forget.
Presentations and Slides
If you want to create your own presentation, possibly in your native language, get the latest style slide templates here from GitHub.
If you created a presentation which could be useful for us, upload it to openSUSE Presentation page or create a merge request on GitHub so that other people can use your presentation.
You can find some more presentations and slides here: openSUSE Presentation page.
You can find a product demo script here: openSUSE product demo script.
Help is always welcome.

And of course, look in our GitHub repo!
If you are participating in a booth and meeting people it is very important to let them know where to find you after the event. You can save a lot of important time in an event in order to talk to even more people, by giving away your openSUSE business card. Bellow you can find some templates in order to print your own openSUSE Business Cards.
Edit the fields, put you own country flag (better to use something coming from wikimedia). Use a template inkscape svg adapted to one of existent paper. I use Avery C32016 in 220grs.
Also some more Templates for Business Cards can be found git artwork mirror
Having people around your booth is always the best way to have more people interested in. A clever way to do that is to give them something to do in order to keep them busy. Below you will find some ways to do that.
