Slackbuilds.org logo contest?


Markus posted a message on the slackbuilds.org mailing list about a logo contest. I wasn't crazy about it so I adapted another version. I know all of us here appreciate the wonderful service the Slackbuilds team provides. So why not have a logo; something slackware websites can use as an icon or badge to show support and link to Slackbuilds.org?

Attached is my entry; adapted from the Slackware boot splash. I also have the original Gimp xcf for any graphics artists out there.

Who else wants to jump into the fun?

Enjoy.

I made some in C4D. One with more Slackware-like colors and one with a more "modern" approach.

Edit: Added high-res.

WOOT! You can't go wrong with Legos!

I've collected the "submissions" here: http://www.koenigcomputers.com/slacklogos/sbo_logo.html

I haven't gotten a "vote" counter button up yet. A simple PHP or javascript snippet with server side storage would be appreciated (via private messaging not posting here).

Yes - it HAS to be the Lego bricks. Nothing more geekier ...

One note, should the '.org' be built below the 'BUILDS' to have;

Code:
SLACK
       BUILDS
                 .org
I do like the 'logo' idea but users that do not know 'SLACKBUILDS.org' will not associate at first. Branding should be such to link the association with the visual.

I completely agree. I like the lego idea, but order of the bricks is confusing. With onebuck's adjustment it's pretty clear.

I haven't arranged all bricks underneath because it makes the logo larger in height, which is not a good solution for a sig, website logo etc.

But anyways, here it is in that order.

Hi,
Then raise to the same level and provide a linking block for separation. Somewhat like bridge in Lego land.
Code:
SLACK      Packages
       BUILDS      .org
OR
Code:
Slackware     Packages
SLACK     BUILDS      .org

Second idea is awesome.

I will do that tomorrow. Switched off my Windows machine already and C4D doesn't run it Wine. Gnaa. Should try Blender, but...usability mess.

Or connect [BUILDS] and [.org] with little "bridge". Figure below:
Code:
SLACK
    BUILDS  .org
        ======
Although onebuck's second idea looks promising and I'm looking forward to see that logo

I like the original lego logo. I think having "slack builds" stuck with a free floating ".org" is very obvious for anyone, not to mention the ubquitous knowledge that .org is the end of the URL. Just my two cents. In any case the legos are genius

Has anyone pointed out that SlackBuilds.org anagrams to "Boil Slack Drugs"? Anyone wanna do a logo on that theme?

I really like the quality of the blocks (and the logo as a whole), however, personally I don't think it's appropriate for anything related to slackware. It's way too fancy for slackware/slackbuilds. Where's simplicity? Where's KISS?

That's my opinion, anyway.

I produced a few versions myself. Nothing fancy, but that's the idea.
