WikiIndex:New logo decision

From WikiIndex
Jump to: navigation, search

Please place your name next to your preference and check out WikiIndex:Spring 2011 Upgrade Path to make sure we haven't missed anything.

My thoughts are to arrange what seem to be favored and have people get that many votes, and vote on the cluster or individual logo. Best, MarkDilley Add your name in the left logo, right logo or either area of the logo grouping you like.

Mix of both work?

Crazy thought / change the logo? Here's a concept, comments welcome Raymond King | talk


I prefer our current logo, it fits in well with the style of the site and the monobook skin. Elassint, 10 21 2010

Understood; I was thinking that we'd also move from monobook to vector when we did the upgrade. Example at Raymond King | talk

I don't see a need to rebrand right now, even under vector. I must admit to being biased to the current logo though :-) ~~ MarkDilley p.s. look at past logo ideas too.

To the right, I am suggesting a rebranding using the same image and different lettering - with the image above the text - also this is the favicon we have had for a while, lost recently. Many complements of the logo, thus my pushing for keeping it is some fashion. :-) ~~ MarkDilley
other font ideas

I love this logo. The current one appears to be a bit, no offence please, quaint in the meantime. This one is very catchy, modern and clear. It works on heaps of skins and allows a good favicon. --kgh 08:36, 1 November 2010 (PDT)

I find the logo great, but it could be even greater :-) though a need for a rebrand seems not to be. But think also about the favicon which is currently empty. Please let me have a further look on it. --Wolf | talk 00:07, 27 October 2010 (PDT)
@Raymond, was it your design?

I tried something yesterday, but got no reasonable results so far. I guess the shovel shape in the teeth of the key was intended as a metaphor for gardening? --Wolf | talk 00:37, 28 October 2010 (PDT)
p.s. 90px-Steel_trowel.jpg this one could fit better ;-)
What about this straight forward logo below? Indexer 01:11, 30 October 2010 (PDT)


It's not a bad idea, but there's no way we can make a 396 × 98 logo like that work with monobook or vector. Sorry. Elassint, 10 30 2010
This is a Citizendium clone. I do not really fancy it. --kgh 08:36, 1 November 2010 (PDT)

Here another suggestion:
too much "hidden" content ;-) ? --Wolf | talk 11:43, 30 October 2010 (PDT)

Okay here is the same logo in 128 by 128. Indexer 17:52, 30 October 2010 (PDT)


that's not the problem. If it should work as favicon, it has to be scaled down to 32x32 or 16x16 pixels - try better with a square shape. --Wolf | talk 05:34, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
Yours is not 32x32 or 16x16 either, and mine is square shape. The green colour doesn't look good. Indexer 16:13, 31 October 2010 (PDT)


FaviconIdeaOct2010.png This simplified logo (minus the text) might be something that could be recycled into the favicon. David Shepheard 04:32, 27 October 2010 (PDT)

I like that idea. It would make an excellent favicon! TeraS 18:11, 27 October 2010 (PDT)

I think this is a good idea as well - and if we kept original keys, we could change lettering to this color. ~~ MarkDilley

A nice one. See me comments in the logo section. --kgh 08:38, 1 November 2010 (PDT)
I like this a favicon. I'm neutral on changing the logo, but if we do, I think matching with this favicon would be the way to go. --MarvelZuvembie 17:08, 4 November 2010 (PDT)
awesome favicon choice.. --Comets 01:10, 7 April 2011 (PDT)
Thus favicon has won me over to Rathbone's Image:WikiindexLogo.png , but instead of "wikiIndex" being in new logo image I'd prefer "WikiIndex", "Wiki Index", "Wiki index" or "wiki index" (with the "index" part in red lettering). --EarthFurst 00:02, 19 May 2011 (PDT)
Not really working favicons
