New look; Promotion: flyer
The Wikimedia community newsletter This Month in GLAM is published since January 2011. Since the February edition, we used a simple logo with the Wikimedia sign and name of the newsletter in a grey box. The GLAM portal got a new design in 2013, and now finally after five years also the newsletter logo has been changed in line with the GLAM-WIKI logo.
Since 2009 there is also a GLAM logo. When revising the This Month in GLAM logo, it was noticed that the GLAM logo is not representing the full GLAM area of galleries, libraries, archives and museums, but is only depicting pieces of art. GLAM is more than just art, so we gave it a thought, and replaced the L, A and M by an iconic representation of a library (book shelves), an archive (old document) and a museum (a museum front with the shape of the classical museum logo).
In this way we do more justice to the enormous diversity of GLAM institutions and projects.
In the past years the number of Wikimedia affiliates has grown rapidly, in existing affiliates many staff and board changes have taken place, and many people joined our movement. Many of the new people worldwide haven't heard about the inspiration they can find in the GLAM newsletter, where best practices, ideas and practicalities are shared. To promote the idea of sharing experiences more, we have been creating a flyer to hand out to the many Wikimedians to come to Wikimania, the Wikimedia Conference, and other conferences and meetups. If you know the newsletter already, please share the flyer with others to have a wider reach.
