I saw a post about the fedora logo in the fedora news rss feed with
your email attached to the article. The idea of how to make a fedora
logo that doesn't have a hat but it still somehow meaningful to the
name I thought was an interesting challenge. I'm not much of a
designer, but I did put something together in a few minutes. Here are
The idea was to make a hat without having it be a literal hat. The
black line around the logo forms the brim of the hat. The band and
bow found on a fedora is suggested by negative space within the logo
type. Its pretty clean and simple. It seems to scale well from this
big size down to 20% (take a look at the SVG) while still being
readable. The font could be changed to match whatever font Fedora
normally likes to use.
Anyhow, just an idea to add to those out there already.
