      Description

      I think we need a cool logo for the project. The ones I've seen so far are a little lame, and that includes the one I've created for SourceForge. If anyone on this list has an idea or knows of anyone with some art skills, plese add a commento to this Jira.

        Reassigning to Ben for 3.1.0. I believe he has something in the works.

        http://www.99designs.com or http://logoworks.com will get you a well-designed logo for a good price (under $1K), if it's in the YHOO budget...

        I think it's important that you get a vector format for whatever logo you accept as the official version. It comes in really handy when you want to print a large poster sized logo for a conference or something.

        Doug also mentioned to me about the vector format for the logo, sounds like a good idea. I thought there might be some logo requirements from Apache, but afaict there are none.

        One example: take a look at the guidelines set out by solr:

        So Jeff does that mean that you don't like the logo?

        Hiram, I talked with our artist that did the image and he has it as a very high resolution psd so that we can do things like posters. Potentially we could put up the psd or he can check into converting to a vector format. It's a drawing, so the conversion will not be perfect.

        Mahadev, we just chose between the 3. The powered by logo would have to be altered if we used the sketch. (Or if we wanted to change something about the powered by logo.)

        I'm not sure that the sketch would look very good on slides, web pages, signs, and the powered by logo. Black and white mixed with color doesn't look that great.
