[edit] Logo Ideas for DebConf13 in Vaumarcus

The Logos proposal ?

It should reflect our vision.

[edit] Requirements

These are the graphic design elements needed for DebConf13 according to Kevin <mid:20120516150455.GB3502@portofbelfast>:

  • 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 (like the DebConf10 logo which is easily recognised as the New York Debconf logo)
  • typeface and layout grids / suggestions for communication material such as cover letters, documentation sheets, website, sponsor banners (similar to the DebConf12 ones), 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, ...)

As a first step and as basis for something we can agree on, an idea of the logo and the typeface should be enough.

[edit] Voting

[edit] Second Round

Please give your vote to only one of the proposals. The announcement was sent by gismo <mid:878ve8maqi.fsf@gismo.pca.it> and the voting period ended on 2012-08-01 (Wednesday).

Proposal First Round Second Round
Alps

+1 (but I would use the Swirl as o in Conf and place the Swiss Flag in front)

+1 (would be good to see a version with the swirl as the O to compare)

+0 (I regret the mountains aren't actual mountains. And not many mountains can be seen from Vaumarcus.)

+1 (I guess you can see quite a lot of mountains with a good sight)

+1 (I like the mountain)

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)

+1 (mountains profile is less aggressive than the next black version)

+1 I like it

+1

Apls+Castle

+1 (easy to recognize, easy to print, maybe with Swirl and Swiss cross in the same red; like it much more than the grey version above which IMHO has way too few contrast)

+1 (maybe a version with the grey like the Alps one, black is a bit hard)

+1 (I would align Vaumarcus on the right)

+1

+0 (I prefer the other design with alps)

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)

+1 (easy to recognize, easy to print; better than the grey version, has more contrast)

+1 (has everything -- mountains, snow, a castle, a shield and a cross, combined in a nice way)

+1 (with the same remark about black being a bit hard...and maybe not allowing black t-shirts)

+1 Cleaner, more readable than the gray version, while still concise and getting all elements

+1 3 Colors, clear, expressing the concept of Switzrland, Vaumarcus and Debian

+1 what those 5 people before me have said :)

+1

+1 (I would align Vaumarcus on the right)

+1 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.

+1

+1 this might be invertible to be printed on a black t-shirt

+1

Shield-1

+1 (like the idea of a patch you could sow or iron on, try the swirl overlapping the mountain maybe)

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
Shield-2

+1 (best would maybe be a mountain with a castle... maybe too much)

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
DC13 Logo Proposal OdyX 0.svg

+1 (Swirl as C, and flag as o, quite good).

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
DC13 Logo Proposal OdyX 1.svg

+1 (I really like the reduced idea, sort-of a swissness concentrate.)

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
DC13 Logo Proposal OdyX 2.svg

+1

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
DC13 Logo Proposal OdyX 4.svg

+1 +1 +1 +1 +1 Mooooooooo (No, not seriously, but might be a cool joke to poke around), debconf should be more be more visible, probably a more abstracted cow would be better

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
Ad 02 - LogoIdeas

+1 (reminds me of many Bauhaus architecture buildings in Switzerland. But the Swiss cross should definitely be fixed to have the correct proportions)

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
Debconf13-shield.svg

+1 (I like the idea of flag + swirl = 13 -- the remainder is probably a little bit to simple)

+1 (same here, I quite like the idea, but not "as is")

(add your vote here as "+1", one per line, and in case a brief comment in parenthesis)
