[edit] License

Logo by Leandro Gómez. Licensed under a CC-BY-SA 3.0 Unported license. The font used is Marko One, available under the DFSG compatible SIL Open Font License, 1.1.

[edit] Requirements

  • a DFSG-free licence
  • a logo that includes the Debian swirl, works in small and large scale and that is recognisable as the logo of the DebConf in Vaumarcus, Switzerland
  • typeface and layout grids / suggestions for communication material such as cover letters, documentation sheets, website, sponsor banners, stickers, T-Shirts, bags
    • This would ideally include 3 header hierarchies (h1,h2,h3), standard text for paragraphs, separator and quotation elements
  • a colour chart of what colours to use where (backgrounds, headers, logo, boxes, ...)

[edit] Comments

  • easy to recognize, easy to print; better than the grey version, has more contrast
  • has everything -- mountains, snow, a castle, a shield and a cross, combined in a nice way
  • cleaner, more readable than the gray version, while still concise and getting all elements
  • 3 colors, clear, expressing the concept of Switzrland, Vaumarcus and Debian
  • maybe with swirl and Swiss cross in the same red
  • I would align Vaumarcus on the right
  • maybe a version with the grey like the Alps one, black is a bit hard
  • with the same remark about black being a bit hard...and maybe not allowing black t-shirts
  • but I'd prefer a less "hard" version (greyish instead of black) and the castle in a slightly different tone to make it distinguishable. I like the right alignment of the word Vaumarcus.
  • this might be invertible to be printed on a black t-shirt


Based on feedback (see comments above).
