Hi Keith,

Glad you like them, I was trying to figure out another way of using a paw. Some more fun, homage to Rasterpax!

I second to keithcleaver, I like what yorkiesnorkie did to MGFox's version of Vincent especially the top one.

I have made a variation of it. I made the Paw move slightly to the center of the circle, so it's not so heavily cropped. I also moved the text into the circle, and bigger Vincent. Yet I think the text a bit small, especially if you want to scale down the logo. It's position also a bit uncomfortable to read. If I rotate the whole picture anti-clockwise, the text will be more comfortable to read but the Paw and Vincent's face position will be affected.

So I made another version with MGFox's Vincent and the Paw with bigger text. However, the Paw is small.

I like that one, too! Vincent climbing all over the text and the paw punctuating the i in Linux. Good job, afgs.

Hi afgs,

As you noted the reason the text on your left example is harder to read is that the kearning is too tight, thats the space between the letters. You can try adding 1 or 2 points between the letters or reducing the size of the font somewhat. I had to do the same thing to make what I did more readable.

I think what we probably need is a bunch of images for different purposes. We've got some really nice buttons, icons, and so on here. The Puppy Logo would probably not be less than 1 inch or so, for paper, display and so on, but the buttons/icons would be reduced to fit the circumstance. As long as the text displays well beside whatever is chosen as a logo, text could be added to any of the images here.

As you noted in your example there's a bit of font compression due to the space restriction, which is why I chose to put the text on the outside when I was tinkering with it. Your font might be a bit wide/large as well for the space inside. In the one I did the font was sans serif as well. I'm not too sure how familiar you are with type but serifs are those flourishes on the ends of the letters in the font you used. If you tried a sans serif, something like Arial or AvantGarde, it might be a bit more clear. I tried upper and lower case as well, but ended up with all upper case letters as being the most distinct. I've found it's hard to get text to wrap around a circle nicely.

I'm new to linux so, is there actually a symbol for the word "Linux"? Anyone know? I've been using the text Puppy Linux or PUPPY LINUX. I still think we need to have that text with the image.

Your example on the right is very nice. I like the paws over the letters at the top and the paw print as the dot of the "i" In that example the serif font serves it very well. Cool!

Hi All,

I had a thought that maybe Puppy is not so much defined by some specific image as by a specification. You could say something like, a Puppy logo is an image of a playful dog or dog's head, and/or a pawprint, and the text "Puppy Linux", "Puppy". Something like that leaving it open for people to create anything they like.

I was thinking too that maybe what your really looking for is a base set of imagery for the Puppy presence, A printable CD label, a basic logo, a deskop background, some icon for the program/start menu, and a themed set of puppy specific gtk icons/buttons etc. I know thats a bigger bite of the cookie than just a logo, but I was looking over a lot of what all the creative people here have contributed, and its potential is much more than just a simple logo.

Hi everybody,
Maybe it's time to make a decision in order to start the new website, what do you think?
Even though few people voted, it looks like rastapax original has the preference. I wonder what Barry think about the rastapax logo? He should give the final word, doesn't he?

Smile Deploy images you like (that is my solution)

So I needed a colourful Puppy image here

Which one did I use? Letters in an email to the usual address . . .

More fun, I was trying to think of different ways of using a paw, although I do like the doggy stuff the most. Smile

Is that 3D paw meant to be there? The 2D paw looks a bit lost behind it.

Amen, gliezl!

We do seem to be going adrift here.

Simple, friendly, distinctive, unmistakably a puppy Vincent - without circles, extra paw(s) and verbiage. Why fiddle with anything else?.

I agree that there are already sufficient ideas to choose from.
But will the decision based only on the current voting system?
Is the current voting includes ALL the ideas submitted in this thread?
I think it only covers the first 3 pages out of more than 150 entries. Or maybe I'm wrong?
If then, what about the many good ideas that has came up since then?
I even notice that some members have collaborated with others to refine ideas.
Just ignore that spirit?

MGFox,

You are quite right about this so-called vote. Anyway, if a new logo is selected, Barry will do it, I expect, perhaps out of these inputs, but not because of any numbers here.

I hope that those who have contributed so much from their generosity and creativity realize this. Perhaps another clarification from WhoDo is in order.

Incidentally, as I noted earlier, some of your adaptations of Vincent, e.g the uncircled grayish one, were quite fine. Thank you.

Henry
