        Attached two proposed logos. The first one is a simple combination of fonts, moving things around in Inkscape, then adjusting letter spacing manually. While the second has a more formal letter style, and a small image, that was created based on dependency trees. It is a simple dependency tree as follows:

            /\
          /    \
        /      / \
        

        But with two copies moved slightly to its right with equal space in between them. The result looks like mountains, but if you pay attention you can see the dependency tree (I swear there is one

        Single image with fonts and colours used available [here](http://kinow.deviantart.com/art/Proposed-logos-for-Apache-OpenNLP-657512914). SVG available as well. Made with Inkscape, fonts from Google Fonts.

        Would you mind posting this as well on the user list? I would like to get feedback from the community on it.

        Sure thing Joern http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/opennlp-users/201701.mbox/browser

        I wonder who maintains our blogs? Maybe we could get word out through ASF official blog, and perhaps ASF twitter accounts? Both TheASF and apacheopennlp.

        Thanks!

        Do we also need to add 'Apache' somewhere on the logo? This is a question for ASF Brand Mgmt and Sally Khudairi.

        My suggestion would to be to leave it optional, but someone involved with the project might be a better person to answer this.

        Thanks for looking into this Suneel, and thanks to Sally as well

        I would suggest something that would have a bullet as in comic-strips. May be the bullet would be soemhow incorporated in the "O" or "P" in "OpenNLP".
        Too bad I am not skilled at all at design

        Uploaded a few variations, and a new logo. Rafik Naccache - Turbopape, I will have some time in a few days (going overseas this week). Might try your idea and upload a logo too! Thanks!

        I’m a committer of an open source project NLP4L, which is developed on github (https://github.com/NLP4L/nlp4l), and we use OpenNLP a lot in our project. I always thought that I must somehow return the favor to this project, and now I have been inspired by seeing this interesting ticket and attached logos.

        I attached two files. In the first one (OpenNLP-koji-1), I put a book which implies a dictionary or a model that is referenced or a book or corpus that is the object to be processed by OpenNLP. I used light gray for Open to indicate openness and red for NLP to indicate great power. The second one (OpenNLP-koji-2) is different version of the first one. The symbol used in the second instead of the book symbol indicates bright future or hope.

        Thanks again for taking time to help us with the logo!

        There was a bit of an off mailing list discussion about the logos and we came to the conclusion that we really like two things:

        • the book (see OpenNLP-koji-1.png)
        • the logo (1,1) (see kinow-opennlp-3-variations.png)

        Would it be possible for you two to work together and make a logo that has this somehow combined?

        sure, thanks Bruno, I will try to apply the gradient to the book and make the feather annotate it.

        Thanks Tommaso Teofili. Spent some time today vectorizing the book. Now in the attached SVG's, everything is a vector, and can be reused, scaled, transformed, etc. Applied the gradient as similar to yours as possible.

        • koji-kinoshita-tomasso-updated.svg - contains the updated logo.
        • koji-kinoshita-tomasso-variations.svg contains the updated logo and a few possible variations for icons.

        Attached PNG flies of the same, in case someone's browser doesn't handle SVG's properly.

        Attaching a quick example of what the home page could look like with the new logo.

        Thanks!

        Newest ideas we have. The book in the current logo just shows a blank page. The thing with the feather is that we thought the feather could be annotating the book. So for that we need something in the book. Maybe you could think of something and also do a try with the parse tree. But we are not sure what is the best way to get that meaning into it.

        The logo currently has many colors, and I think that is a bit too much. One suggestion. Apply this gradient from left to right, and not on both the book and the text. Maybe there should be an exception for the feather itself. Otherwise maybe the feather should be the only colorful part and the rest of the logo has just one color.
