20 Responses to WordCamp logo: First draft ideas for 2012

    Awesome, I love them all really. I am a big fan of type logos, but if I was to offer any crit on the first batch, it would be to stroke the “W” so that the logo appears inset into the rest of the type, rather than just stuck on top.

    That said, if I look at the all at a glance, the last batch stand out the best.

    Maybe some incorporation of (yes, it’s cliché) Table Mountain?

    • Neil says:

      We had some ideas with Table Mountain, but held back due to the cliché factor… Ash has updated with a very rough version of this concept… We even looked at distorting the W to mimic the mountain shape, but this was a bit of stretch (pardon the pun). Personally I’d like to explore the first option further and work on integrating the logo into the type – have a feeling it’s going to come down to font selection and some fine typography tweaks.

      • Byron says:

        Yeah, the cliché factor was something I worried about a little, but if incorporated nicely with text, it could have some legs.

        This is a little play on word and image that I came up with now, obviously not 100% the way I would go as the mountain is not completely visible, but nice use of font etc.

        Byron's suggestion

  2. I like option 2 – the versatile logo [one on the left]. It can adapt to any other platform easy. It will also go well with last year’s mascot.

  3. I also like option 2. Its quite dynamic. As an idea… you could let the 3 color bands form table mountain on top.

    The Logo variation with the vibrant Arican colours is my favourite, definitely. Clean, simple, themed, nuff said! Great work.

    I’m not a fan of the Table mountain one, a logo needs to be able to work in B&W and I feel it’s too rigid in that border, I like versatile logo option 1 or 2 but I would incorporate the African feel or stronger colours into that one, take away the pastel colours. Really looking forward to Word Camp, I heard about it last year but couldn’t make it. Got my tickets, amped!

    I like the versatile logo options, as well as the first option with the African colours (the variation without the tilted text).

    Looking forward to WordCamp Cape Town 2012! 🙂

  7. Hi Team,

    I like the first african colours option, really rocks!

    Also, can you please make smaller version, last one took over my whole cover of
    my Macbook and had to take it off 🙂 Not much room left

    Versatile logo set, the second one of the two 🙂

  9. For me it’s either the second ‘versatile’ one or the first African colours one. They look super smooth without looking like they’re trying too hard.

    I dig the ubuntu flavours. The first one is rad.

  11. Mike Eloff says:

    I’m a big fan of the “Logo option using the W in WordPress really effectively” set and of those, the second option would be my choice.

    I’d like to point out that ALL the logo’s are awesome and if I had to pick a second choice, it would be the left logo with the African feel to it.

  12. Jeffikus says:

    Definitely the Versatile option for me 🙂 I also like Byron’s proposed design in the comments. The african colours come a close third!

    Versatile logo option 1 or 2 look great! prefer option 1 though. Nice options!
