You may find modern Debian styling on the swirl quite a different
matter. Look specifically at the teal box at the top of this page, which
is how the logo appears in the software today:


We're not obligated to incorporate the Debian swirl into the DebConf
logo, but it is something of a tradition. So think a bit about
modernizing the swirl before dismissing it entirely.

The diamond really has no special significance in Debian, it's just a
font variant in the letter "i". So it's fine to experiment with diamonds
as a design element, but I wouldn't spend much time on them.
