X.Org Is Looking For A New Logo

XDS 2010 has just begun in Toulouse, France. Well, besides yesterday's pre-event where we were discussing Wayland and other topics. At the moment just the X.Org Foundation itself is being discussed.

There is an audio feed of the event that I am recording directly from the microphone feeds and those will be published on Phoronix in the coming days. I will also be recording videos of select talks in HD, but it will be from an integrated microphone source.

During this initial X.Org Foundation talk one item was brought up worth sharing: the X.Org Foundation is looking for a new logo. It's actually been something under consideration for a number of years, but it's now been discovered a Brazilian cable company is using a logo just like that of X.Org. With the fact that the current X.Org logo is rather simplistic and old (25 years old), the foundation is looking for a new logo that can be a registered trademarked in the US and Europe.

X.Org Is Looking For A New Logo


As everyone at XDS is a developer and not graphics designers, perhaps any of the artistic members of the Phoronix community can propose a new logo to the X.Org Foundation.
