Ubuntu One

So Ubuntu One is in beta now.

I was quite disappointed when I saw the wordmark. One could hope that it’s only a stopgap solution, but to have one would be a bad idea in itself.

I likely shouldn’t mess with design done at Canonical, but this thing bothers me. At the very least, the letter spacing should be uniform.

Original at the top, followed by a rearrangement and a quick and rough sketch of an alternative:

    I don’t know… personally I like the original the best! I do agree though that lining up lettering would improve it somewhat. In this case I’d keep the word one right justified and shrink it ever so slightly so that the left edge of the O lines up with the left edge of Ubuntu’s N.
