I was working on a Forum Signature so I could spread the word of Fedora
In forum Posts. I was working with the Fedora Logo and created a Web2.0
Style Version of the Logo. I would like to know what you guys / gals think
of it. A few people I have spoken to say it looks good for a concept.
Aside from the usage guidelines several others have already mentioned...
Other logo overhauls I've seen lately (Intel, Pepsi, Xerox, off the top of
my head) certainly are more of a 21st century update, if you will, but what
you have is basically the same logo, same fonts, just.... stretched and
pulled. It is an interesting concept, but I'm not sure what makes this any
more "web 2.0" than the existing logo, or, alternately.... I'm not sure
it is you are trying to convey about the brand/project via the logo.
I agree, however, that it would be cool to have a standard template of sorts
(if one does not already exist) for bb/forum post signatures. Standard
background, fonts, a spot for a picture/avatar/whatever, an appropriate link
& tagline, etc. I would speculate that a good deal of potential
contributors / users are not so much mailing list users, but possibly more
bulletin board posters, if you will, and having something that is well done
that people could use as a sig certainly couldn't hurt in efforts to spread
But as I said, I'm not sure what you're trying to do here that wouldn't be
accomplished by using the standard logo in that situation.
My $.02, totally failed art class opinion, :)
