Ubuntu Friendly Logo 3

Part of a project is questioning the whole thing. Meno argued that we should just use the known Circle of Friends logo. In my own words: to further establish the CoF, to not weaken the visual identity by dividing effort.

True, and thanks for that comment. I had those thoughts, too. But this is not only about external, but also about internal identification. Between using something else or using the CoF, there’s room for a combination. As much as I like reduction, just ubuntu friendly and the CoF might end up a little lonely.

Like before with the sketches, I left some stuff in I would have deleted in another setting. Bad vector graphics have non of the charm even bad sketches can have, but this way, you get a good idea of the things I tried (minus all the tweaking and shuffling around).

Now I’m considering to play with Guilloché/Spirograph patterns 🙂

    I like 4b.
    BTW you might want to reconsider using the letter U shaped like that, it has strong similarities with the symbol of the fascist movment http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usta%C5%A1e

    What about G1 with the Ubuntu logo in the dip?

  5. tgm says:

    or G3 with the f (in the same colour) breaking out of the square?

  6. G3 for me. minimal is good

    E4 would be great if there was a pc or a laptop inside the cog instead of a box/hard drive

    I think that there are 2 possible needs here:
    1) A logo for the programme that can be used by UF Squad and control – for which I like 7a
    2) a logo for systems that are found to be UF. I think the e4 is fantastic! if we don’t choose it for UF I might borrow it for the certification programme 😉
