Thanks for doing this. I really like your concept. I had a similar idea myself recently but I don't think I could've come up with something that looked half as good as yours.

I'm not a fan of the "514cKW4r3", but otherwise I think it's well done.

I agree with onebuck in that I really like Ewing's Tux, but I do understand wanting it to be original.

Personally, I like the Crystalized Tux here.
There's also a svg version of the slackware penguin here.

I think my ideal logo would be a headshot or bust of the crystalized tux, with the slackware alterations (hair tuft & pipe), in your circle.

Hi,

Tux with a pipe shows a typical frontal view for pipe position.

Agreed, I think it's a very cool logo, nice work! I'd get rid of the '514ckw4r3' on the penguin though, imho it looks a bit out of place.

Really appreciate the comments and critics. Feedback is great for me and making this a lot more challenging.
Gonna redraw the pipe again for my diagonal random penguin using slack. Just did some work on WhiteHotLoveTiger's ideal logo. Hope you like it. I worked with the art you linked me, so let me know what you think.

Wow, Nick, I really like this one. It's exactly what I described!

I'm now using this instead of the KDE logo on my application launcher thing (the equivalent to the windows start button--I'm not sure of the proper term).

Sorry to pull up such an old thread.

nick, I was wondering if you still had the whole Crystalized-Tux-with-pipe image that you used to make the circle logo here: http://tinyurl.com/slackTux

Not discouraging you by any means but I'm not a fan of personified dumbed down style and prefer more symbolic way of expression so the unofficial old logo find still better although not great. See logos of other distros like Fedora, Debian or Ubuntu what do I mean.

Liked number 2 most (Slackware in white typeface is slightly better). I'd prefer the pipe lit, by the way.

I second this.

A new cool symbolic logo will be great.

I draw corporate art for a living. Having made thousands of Restaurant menus, counter signs and cards ad nauseum. So I understand exactly what your saying. The Redhat logo is spot on brilliant IMO. Being I do it all day, it's not very fun. For me it's fun to draw things for that cheezy 1990's fanboy in me. If you have a Slack logo/icon or an idea you'd like, I'd be happy to try & draw it. Feel free to PM me.

WhiteHotLoveTiger,
Mine is just a head shot, but here is the actual one which is really well done.
