One of the ideas some Red Hatters had on our bus ride into work this 
morning was to code name F10 "neon" (neon being the 10th element in the 
periodic table of elements.) The link between werewolf and sulphur is 
that sulphur helps ward away werewolves. The link between sulphur and 
neon would be that they are both elements.

It would then be cool to have a wallpaper with a neon Fedora logo sign 
on it, when it gets dark the neon sign lights up, when it's daylight the 
neon sign turns off.

The general artwork such as the banners and splashes could be a glossy 
dark grey with very bright thin accents, think accent colors like bright 
Fedora blue, magenta, yellow, and green. We could probably do some 
awesome designs using light painting, eg here are some examples of light 
painting that I did a while back:


Some other inspirations:



Another codename that was suggested for f9 but got 2nd place might be 
good for F10 - bathysphere. Do you know what a bathysphere is? I didnt 
but I learned this morning:


We could come up with some very interesting visual ideas to accompany 
bathysphere, such as underwater aquatic scenes or we could go for a 
really really cool steampunk [1] look (eg
