Talk:Logo contest

I think, that before we start such a contest we should discuss future logo policy. I do not particularly like idea of having two logos instead of one. This seems to be diluting "brand recognition" without any special gains.JaroslawLipszyc 01:17, 3 May 2006 (CEST)

Who like my logos? :) I'm working on others. ;)--Bob4 10:37, 21 May 2006 (CEST)

I like them, esp. FC3.png -- but I'd prefer them to be more visually distinct from the Debian logo: openlogo-nd-50.png --Erik Möller 11:43, 21 May 2006 (CEST)
Ok, I understand. I will modify that image. --Bob4 12:18, 21 May 2006 (CEST)
Erik, what about this? FC10.png --Bob4 16:48, 21 May 2006 (CEST)
Interesting - nice pastel colors, but will that approach work in grayscale? I might prefer the "petals" to flow into each other, using transparency and perhaps turning off the gray border. I have to admit I don't like the bounding box very much in this version. The black lines on the lower left look like a barcode, making the whole picture look a bit like a package ready to be sold. Perhaps try some radical variations here (circles instead of rectangles etc.)? I think the logo still would need a certain whoomp, something to make it stand out -- perspective perhaps, or color (the fact that you use pastels would let some high saturaton color stand out).--Erik Möller 00:55, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
A logo must be simple, because you see a little logo: I'll think to a more simple logo. --Bob4 01:22, 22 May 2006 (CEST)

You can see well this logo also when it's little. Free.png--Bob4 22:06, 22 May 2006 (CEST)

Nice, just a tad sharp -- can it be made to look less aggressive?--Erik Möller 22:54, 22 May 2006 (CEST)
Free2.png
Hmm, interesting. Evokes toy/circus connotations for me. Would need to see a couple of variations to know if this is the right way to go. I think the colored blades should be a bit smaller, perhaps, and shades of the same color.--Erik Möller 23:42, 22 May 2006 (CEST)

Excuse me, but what exactly do you mean by "This logo is not original." ? --Mfalzon 21:43, 26 July 2006 (CEST)

It was added by an unregistered user. I've asked them at User talk:87.3.20.163 what they meant. Angela Beesley 19:45, 26 July 2006 (CEST)
I hate to seem assuming bad faith, but this smells like FUD on the part of 87.3.20.163. --Lemi4 15:54, 15 September 2006 (CEST)

Any comments on variations in other languages? - perhaps avoid text in the logos/emblems, or allow alternative text within them? - e.g. in Chinese: 自由, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, French, Finnish, Swedish, German, kiSwahili, Zulu, Amaric, ... ?
