      Description

      We need a totem for our t-shirt that is yet to be printed. O'Reilly owns the Clyesdale. We need something else.

      We could have a fluffy little duck that quacks 'hbase!' when you squeeze it and we could order boxes of them from some off-shore sweatshop that subcontracts to a contractor who employs child labor only.....

      Or we could have an Orca (Big!, Fast!, Killer!, and in a poem that Marcy from Salesforce showed me, that was a bit too spiritual for me to be seen quoting here, it had the Orca as the 'Guardian of the Cosmic Memory': i.e. in translation, bigdata).

        Enis Soztutar Good idea. The vote would be on which 'general' image. I'd then take our logo plus image and then get designer to stamp out the combinations (tall, long, big, small...). The latter came from our Cosmin Lehene

        More +1s. Ok. So Orca it is given votes here and then the endorsements up in the thread "DISCUSS: We need a mascot, a totem HBASE-4920".

        Now for the hard part, which Orca. A few folks like the 'hockey team' emblem. Lets see if we can get closure on at place holder at least w/o this turning into "engineers doing design" (almost there).

        The red one is not bad (purple too cartoony and the other too complicated).

        On Marcy's latest, I think first set while graphically clean, they have lost too much detail and hard now to identify as an orca in particular. Option 5 is not bad but not sure this an orca either w/ the blunt nose. I'd say option 6 the best of the lot.

        Looking around more it looks like we could 'buy' these as is:

        I like circle. I like the monochormatic take. I wonder if black and white might not be better since then its more identifiably an orca. It does make me think of a hockey team for some reason. It doesn't seem to go well w/ the 'apache hbase'. Maybe inverted and on right side would help and perhaps smaller. Tell your buddy thanks Marcy for helping move this along.

        I'd guess that the one on the left is a dorsal fin (on the back) and the other is a pectoral fin (on the side); it's a side view of the Orca.

        ... and no, I didn't know the words for those off the top of my head, I looked them up.
