Ubuntu Friendly Logo 4
2011-06-12 10 Comments
After some reflection, I think the seal approach of the previous set (4 A, B, C) is just clumsy, in an official person cuts ribbon with large golden scissors way.
The gears are overly technical and the CoF in a box creates a too strong impression, it’s brutal in being a primitive other than the circle.
On to the next set. Please click the image to make sure you’re viewing it at full scale:
I propose to use 4 left for stickers. The spirograph in the background is inspired by the patterns found on some certificates and paper money. It builds a supporting net, fits tightly and picks up on circular geometry as found in the CoF. The left version does not match the 3 circle segment symmetry, but I prefer it, as it has a more open, floral character. It might require some tweaking for good printed results.
There’s no hint regarding hardware, as the placement of stickers will provide context.
5 Shows a way to pick up that pattern for the team logo. Of course this is not a robust solution, as the stroke width has to be scaled to not change the character. It seems advisable to use 1 or 2, instead.
In the context of my previous posts, I would hope it’s clear, but to be sure: 1 includes an element that is meant to be a combination of an abstract smile and a check mark. 2 is the UF ligature constructed out of a circle.
