hmmm...hadn't thought of that.

you're making me think about changing my opinion Confused


How about the word "Puppy" where the "P" is the outline of a dog's head?

The paw makes an excellent desktop (it is a backround image and does not distract). In other words it suggests a Puppy, without being direct.
Show people a paw and it will suggest "paw", "print", "cat", "dog" etc.

Show people a Puppy and they will think Puppy

A Puppy represents Puppy and is therefore a brand / logo etc that is part of our evolution.

It says Puppy. It is Puppy.

Put "puppy" into google - click on images - what do you get? I only saw one seagull . . . no pause for paws

maybe a crisp drop shadow behind the paw to make it jump out a bit?

or perhaps the same blur type as behind the text?

Maybe this is what you had in mind?

I agree with Lobster's ideas. The logo has to be easily identifiable.
Just one other thing, could you please make the toned backdrop slightly lighter, so that the face or pawprint 'jumps out' a bit more. For those of us less young than we used to be, a bit of contrast works wonder for the old peepers.

I think we need to go away from having the words Puppy Linux, or at least make them not so prominent. I feel we should have a symbol/logo that can be recognised no matter where it is. Again think Ubuntu. Or even the Pardus logo http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=pardus?

I tend to think IBM, Microsoft, Dell, Apple, etc. where the background amplified
the name vs trying to guess what is the product from the logo alone.

It is one thing to have tons of money to market a logo and to create brand
awareness but where Puppy is a niche distro it may be that Puppy and Linux
need to be primary and the background make the name attractive to the eye.

Just a thought ...

The classic paw print really is perfect.
It is so simple and yet it looks so good. It works well when really small (eg start button), but also when really big. It has been incorporated into all sorts of superb wallpapers (even for black themes!), and can be customised really well for this purpose.
It is abstract enough, but not too abstract - you can instantly see what it is.
It looks professional, and I don't think it is really an issue looking like Gnome, or not clearly belonging to a puppy rather than a cat.
It is already seen all over the Puppy forum and elsewhere.

How many people are there that would seriously dislike the paw logo? Very few I suspect, whereas I think a significant proportion of the community would dislike most of the others in this thread. Most of them are just too abstract ("What actually is that?"), and I think a lot of people would consider many of them to just look silly.

I also really like the puppy with flower (the one in Lobster's post with the big ears and caption), but it is nowhere near as versatile, and I like Rastapax's ones too, but don't really think they are as suitable for a logo.
This new puppy in a circle is all right, but again I don't think it is nearly as versatile, and it just doesn't look as classy.

Go for the paw!

Thanks tahaselim. Here are some variations of my abstrac chihuahua.
I made them slightly slanted and unsymmetrical to look more dynamic.
Upright and symmetric looks so stiff.

- Red filling on black (see also the menu button at bottom left) - for eob whose been asking for a red,white, and black theme. (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=19374&start=29)
- On blue (transparent filling)
- On Puppy 2.16 light blue (for those prefers light colors, like WhoDo?)
- On Puppy 2.16 light blue (with blue filling)
- On Ubuntu's light brown (transparent filling)
- On Ubuntu's light brown (brown filling)
- On Puppy's sky background (transparent filling)

To Whodo: here are Vicent's outlines, with and without shading, as blue buttons.

Anyway, I really like afgs' works, especially the last one. I think it would be a perfect logo; clean, dynamic and professional looking; looks good in rounds or squares; even on menu button. Very different from any other distro logos. Very impressive. Keeps the good work.

Can I ask you (afgs) to make a version with the logo in monochrome without shading. I would like to see it as outline (for printing reason). I bet it would still look as nice.

Something transparent that can be dropped on any background should be useful, like the last one on blue sky background.

this is very rough . . .
but is it possible for the Puppy to have paws perhaps holding Puppy Linux or peeping over the top? This would combine our two favourite directions . . .



more inspiration . . .

PostPosted: Mon 16 Jul 2007, 08:19    Post_subject:  Linux Distros Images and Puppy Linux  

Hi all,

I just thought I'd take a brief look at the net and see what was out there in terms of a presence for Puppy Linux, and at the other linux logos. I just did a quick "img" google search on puppy linux. I got imgs of the desktops on page 1, the most prominent is this one



I got Barry's drawn Puppy head with flower on page 2



The paw print didn't appear until page 6. My personal preference would that we not use a paw for the following reason, e.g. Wolvix slogan is "get pawed", this is the paw for Wolvix Linux:




If you type in puppy and look for imgs you get puppy desktop shown above on page 5

Now, here's a few prominent linux logo imgs:














My thought is that Puppy Linux already has a fairly substantial presence using dogs faces, dogs heads, pictures of dogs, and even the pawprint. The Puppy face didn't put me off of choosing it over the other distributions. I chose it because it works! If you want to serious up the distributions the Rasterpax drawing, or variations therof would do pretty well in the above group as an official logo.

Now, don't get me wrong. I do like the puppy paw too. We could certainly use the paw on icons, menus and so on where a head wouldn't fit. However our paw should be really distinctive and totally different from the Wolvix paw. Lets be adventurous!
