Media Goblin Logo 1
2011-07-02 3 Comments
GNU Media Goblin will be server software for hosting and sharing media including images, music and video.
The project is looking for a logo. Initially I wanted to limit my contribution to guidance. That doesn’t seem to work out and now I made the mistake to pick up the pen … 😉
While a logotype (without symbol/emblem) would be an option, there’s a desire for a symbol and that’s what I will explore now.
As this won’t be just for photos (or just for music or just for video), we are left with the highly abstract media, where a symbol would have to be about all the options or none at all. The community and sharing aspect is shared by many projects and commonly leads to circles and hand-holding little people symbols and stuff like that 😉
The goblin in the name may serve as inspiration, but the tone shouldn’t become silly or scary. It’s meant to be somewhat lighthearted and playful, but not to the degree where it would rub against dead serious user content.
