Logo reconfiguration

3rd February 2011

Slight reconfiguration of the existing LibO logo was mentioned (non-TDF libO logos)(new plain-mime icon instead of previous flat icon). These images show possibilities, also leads to "badge" proposals for members.

Logo proposals

2nd December 2010

Just some early ideas I wanted to get out. In greyscale to begin with, colours can be added once Identity has been decided. Typeface is mostly Arial but easily replaced with an Open-Source type like Liberation Sans, again, once decided. The proposals attempt to convey various qualities, among them; open/cleanliness, simplicity, sophistication. Many try to adhere to the current "dog-eared-page" logo choice. Designs are numbered if you care to provide specific feedback.
