      Description

      The bigtop logo is a little minimalist. I really like it as a first iteration but..... BigTop does ALOT of things, and it would be cool if the logo reflected this .... any thoughts?

        I think it is very hard to put 'many things' into 32x32 icon.
        besides, people know our logo already, why more confusion

        Fair enough. Feel free to close this ticket if It's non-relevant.

        1) Konstantin Boudnik Well, possibly you could keep the existing icon for 32x32 images and create a High res version for the site. Again this is just an idea, im not going to push to hard for it.... like you said if it creates confusion its not worth it.

        2) Bruno Mahé in case this jira has a possibility of staying alive:

        • some simple modifications:
        • logo on the flag,
        • or elephant trunk sticking out of the tent
        • elephant silouhette behind the bigtop

        OR

        The heterogeneous one linked above feels way too crowded.

        As Cos said, changing the logo may create some confusion. So a new logo should have some benefits to outweigh the cons.
        And I don't know how everyone feels about changing the logo.
        I am open to look at new ideas, but I would not actively look for a new logo myself.
