I don't know that it has anything to do with refactoring, but when I think of Inkscape, especially it's logo I think of Japanese crests and Mt. Fuji, Hokusai, Hirosige, which then makes me think all of the fabulous Ukiyo-e prints that inspired art movements, graphic design and print graphics all over the world. I personally believe that Inkscape, and indeed SVG format has that same potential.
If this worked correctly, the SVG is now available for download.

I love the patterns u've used, from the bg to the garb! And it is so cool & whimsical that a very traditional looking Japanese woman is so tech savvy! Wicked design!

I love the anachronism.
But I'm not a fan of the green-white-red gradient.

Thank you, and funny, someone else mentioned the green and red gradient too :D

PLEASE re-size to the dimensions given in the contest rules. Additionally, if you edit this deviation, you should be able to directly upload an SVG and then upload a PNG as the "preview" for it.

I hadn't figured out how to upload the SVG until now, so while the preview PNG is larger to be at least 96 dpi, the SVG, which is now available for download, is only off by 1 px height/width. Hope this suffices...my first About screen entry :D

New art, yay! Very nice! There's only one thing I could criticise - that green-white-red gradient. It looks a little out of place with the rest.

Thank you Shane! I was going for that Ukiyo-e thing, where often there is a badge with the artist's mark, and the usual colours they used, and I was going to be a bit more decorative with it, but the time was slipping away. Are you using a dev version? And if so, what do you think? The reason I ask is because the Cafuego one I am using, as opposed to the one I was testing on Windoze, when a blur or filter is applied to an object, and I resize it, often the resolution is diminished, and I wondered if it was something in the particular dev version I am using, or something native with my computer, maybe my monitor with Ubuntu. I mentioned it to Josh, nonetheless.

I used the dev version for a short time but for whatever reason, the Illustrator export feature is missing in the Cafuego build and I needed it for some 3d work I'm doing. I did like the new snap tools. I still don't like how gigantic the sidebar docking is and trying to rearrange the toolbars is a futile and frustrating experience. Plus, it's slower than ever. Inkscape either needs some serious optimization or hardware acceleration. Preferably both. That all said, the "stable" build that is available in the repositories is bad. Really bad. The ruler on the left side doesn't even dislpay. It crashes on copy/paste in certain situations. Not sure what you mean with the resolution and blur problem you're experiencing.

I hear you about the toolbars and the slowness, and you are right about the optimization/hardware acceleration. Have you sent in any bug reports? Hopefully during their "hard freeze" stage they will be able to work out these kinks :D I wonder if Josh came out with his dev yet? It is rather frustrating. At least on Ubuntu it doesn't crash every 2-5 minutes, and I'm grateful for that- lol!

Ubuntu 9.04 has been a real joy to work in. So much so, despite liking Windows 7, I haven't spent much time using it.

Japanese prints are so impressive, and of course Fuji...

Beautiful work!

Thank you very much, and I so agree!
