New logo.
« on: August 28, 2010, 11:12:34 pm »


It's a hybrid symbol crossed between the heraldry of the Japanese Samurai and a sign on clothes worn in Ghana, Africa.
I didn't make this, this was made by Jason a Pinguy OS user. This is the overall look of the logo I would like to use. If the community thinks they can improve it please post them here and we will vote on which one to use.

We only need 3 images.

logo.png for the Plymouth theme. 128x128px
mintMenu.png for the mint menu. 22x22px
distributor-logo.png for the distributor main menu button. 24x24px

The original image I gave Jason to work from was this:

It looks good. There's also a hint of  yin and yang in there too!

Awesome. The idea.

The background needs less focus, and the logo less transparency. It's almost invisible, which defeats the purpose. It's a LOGO it's meant to be seen.

That could be a interesting default wallpaper, but not the logo in itself.

I can't do better, I'm a disaster in GIMP, and I don't have a windows installation any more. But, I do have opinions, lol, hope you don't mind.

I like the logo and concept. But perhaps it could have some reference to Ubuntu, as that is PinguyOS' root.... maybe dropping the background image and adding Ubuntu-ness in the colour scheme.?

Well, it may be my imagination, or the fact that for me it's almost 5 AM, but I kind of see Ubuntu there.

Just rotate the bottom part of the wave to the form a circle, and it does have some likenesses to Ubuntu logo.

:)

Oh I see that as well. I was referring to the colour scheme of the logo minus the background image.

Hi guys

I have the logo with out the background which was done as a very quick wallpaper.

i also noted the ubuntu and was going to put together a ubuntuised version

if you can wait a couple of days I will release the svg and we can all work on the same file.

cant upload the SVG to here so see share on dropbox to down load and use

the symbol itself is all combined so cannot be edited too much but can be changed fill and stroke.

some of the svg are not showing up right in a browser so download.

I use Inkscape so everything is vector scalable, Inkscape would make a good default graphics app hint hint!

WoW! Love it.
Just a couple of things I would change. the poweredby.png should use the same Gray colour as the Elementary theme or a dark blue fading into light blue like on the default wallpaper, same with the pinguyloadsplash 1900x1200.png. I also think the logo should try and fill most of the circle.

I know you probably spent a lot of time on this but I do have to be honest with you. I'm not really a fan of pinguybuntulogo.png

Nice! I really like the Powered By Pinguy, very Pro looking. The pinguyubuntulogo might benefit from some of the same effects as the powered by pinguy logo.

Hmm... what exactly does Pinguy mean anyway?
