Re: Debian logo/font question

Hi Alison 

Thanks, def thinking of incorporating the Swirl in the Debconf logo - have made emends on what we did and found a way to get it in, because it has become synonymous with Debian. 
Like the link you sent the swirl works well there!

.... and the diamond haha

Chat soon

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.
