      Description

      Now for the hard part: the project logo. We should create one and add it to the website once done.

          Yes, it would certainly be nice to have a real logo. Do you want to give it a shot?

          One of LinkedIn's designers, Ashley Hall, was kind enough to come up with this logo proposal. I like it quite a lot. It goes with the idea of Giraph and networks, creating the icon of the giraffe from a stylized network, with the eye being a particularly active node.

          We have vector versions of both the regular and reversed versions. It's designed to work well both at large and small sizes. This is quite helpful for using the logo in all different types of situations; the website, presentations, tshirts, etc.

          I'm planning on using this for my Berlin presentation and would like to get agreement on standardizing on it for the project. I'm +1.

          It's quite cool, although I must admit it requires quite a lot of cognitive processing to get it right.

          +1, wow, very cool. Took me a few seconds to get it, but then I realized how awesome it is. I'm happy to use it as the standard logo (i.e. website, etc.).

          I like the overall scheme but I wonder if we should show a bit more neck. Otherwise the Giraffe in the foreground is not so evident. At first I thought it was a little figure of a man with two horns on his head.

          I would just try to make the logo a little more rectangular (more tall than wide) to show the giraffe's head and neck.

          Must say I like the previous one better than this one, sorry John. My girlfriend is an illustrator, I've asked her to take a shot at it. Will post a result as soon as there is one.

          With 3 +1s from committers, I think this can be considered accepted. I'm traveling now but will commit the original files shortly to the source tree. Thanks all

          Very quick sketch by my girlfriend (3rd giraph logo.png), they can be refined if there is enough interest.

          I've committed these files on Ashley Hall's behalf (he doesn't have an ASF id) under new giraph/logos directory. Didn't edit changelog since no changes to source code. Thanks everybody!
