The Debian Project announced today the winner of the artwork contest for the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 11 “Bullseye” operating system, due for release in summer 2021.
During the past three months, the Debian Project ran the annual artwork contest for the next major release of its Debian GNU/Linux operating system. But only 17 artwork proposals made it to the final round, and now the winner has been revealed, as voted by the community.
The winner is Juliette Taka and her artwork “Homeworld” will be used as the default theme for Debian GNU/Linux 11 “Bullseye,” the next major version of the popular Linux-based operating system. The artwork will be used as default wallpaper, login screen, installer, boot screen, etc.
“Homeworld is a theme inspired by the Bauhaus movement, an art style born in Germany in the 19th century and characterized by its unique approach to architecture and design,” said Juliette Taka. “I wanted to create a bridge between this art style and Debian.”
Juliette Taka works at Logilab and she’s using Debian GNU/Linux for more than seven years. She is known for making illustrations and drawing comics books, and she also made the Lines theme used in Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” and the softWaves theme used in Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch.”
Congrats Juliette for winning the Debian 11 Bullseye artwork contest! You can see here how the artwork will look like on the Debian GNU/Linux’s desktop, login screen and installer.
The final release of the Debian GNU/Linux 11 “Bullseye” operating system is expected to arrive in early summer 2021, if everything goes according to plan. The operating system will be powered by the long-term supported Linux 5.4 kernel series and will include various new features and improvements that will be revealed in the coming months.
