The Artwork team has always been open, in my experience, to criticism
and suggestions about artwork.  They exemplify the way Fedora teams
work openly and transparently in a cooperative effort.  And they've
consistently turned out designs that are always solid, and often
spectacular, not just for the desktop but for a variety of other uses

We can absolutely have dissension and discussion about artwork and
design -- with specifics about what needs work.  At the end of the
day, the Fedora Artwork team has been charged with the responsibility
of the look and feel of Fedora.  They're expected to do -- and have
done -- that work in a community-friendly way, and people who want to
have input into the process should do the same.
