Projects in KDE are always in need of good art. Icons, splash screens and themes create an identity for an application. By creating art for the KDE project, your portfolio will be seen by a large audience and will help KDE products have a strong branding. == Communicating with the team == New KDE Artists are encouraged to start at [irc://irc.kde.org/kde-artists <nowiki>#kde-artists</nowiki>] on irc.freenode.net, (or [http://kde.org/support/#irc learn more about IRC]), which is the most active. The team also discusses activities on the [http://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-artists kde-artists mailing list], [http://kde.org/support/#mailinglists learn about mailing lists]. == Documentation == The art in KDE follows certain guidelines, you will want to keep these for reference.
