I am willing to help there, certainly ! But I'd rather have someone with 
some design skills come up with a generic color palette and styles that 
can be reused throughout documents, presentations and spreadsheets.

If you let me do it, I would go with the default styles of AsciiDoc which 
I am reimplementing in ODF. They are not the most attractive, but 
certainly better than what is now the default. I am sure a stylist can 
come up with something better looking though !

One of the ideas I think would be great, is having a small LibreOffice 
logo on the default document somewhere on the lower-right of the page. Or 
in the default footer. The logo is stylish and non-obtrusive.

PS I was very impressed with the default presentation stylesheet for the 
conference. And maybe green is a nice color for the default. Who did design
that template ?
