Re: DebConf 14 logo design


In addition to the as-yet unanswered questions below, I've got one more:
when does the DebConf14 team need to have a final logo?  I recall seeing
some mention of "August 17" in an earlier email.

In any case, I intend to post another revision(s) in the next couple of days.

there is a free approximation here:


If this font isn't a good fit, I don't mind this much either; this font has

often been used for the DebConf logos, but not universally (DC11/12 used
it, DC10/13 did not).  But whether or not we want to use that font in
particular, the current one is really quite jarring to me.

Can you elaborate on what aspect(s) of the font is conniption-inducing?

Also... have you tried viewing the logo smaller, e.g. perhaps 3" wide at
foot or two away, versus full-screen or full-window size?  (I, too, find
it jarring when my face is smashed into it in my icedove window... but
that's not really how one will ever look at it.)

Can you also share the source for this logo?  (I assume it was originally
done as xcf or svg)

You bet... the original source is from Inkscape (and the original source
file is full of a lot of cast-off elements and other detritus which will
get removed before the final product is finally produced).

I've got two technical questions:

  1) What font licensing (non)restrictions should I be aware of?

  2) What variety of media (and sizes) will the logo be used for?
     (The version used for letterhead will have different tweaking than
     the version used for a t-shirt.)
