[contest] Design a new logo for Manjaro
« on: 06. October 2015, 22:11:35 »


Manjaro will get some great innovations soon and maybe also a new logo. We are asking our great community to help us choose a new design. If you are a designer or you have some graphical skills, please feel free to propose a logo draft. Help us and send us great logos, ideas and choose your favourite designs.

Although the inspiration for the name originates from Mount Kilimanjaro. Maybe we can include a mountain into the new logo as we already tried in our drafts.

Why do we need a new logo you may ask. Well, there is to much similarities to the A.I.R Flier:



So get creative. You can either post your work here or mail it to support@manjaro.org. The contest will take place till 14.10.2015 18:00 CEST. All proposed logos will be added in this thread so everybody can see the competition as they appear.

Don't create a logo similar to Motorola! C:-)
But I see a great opportunity, because Manjaro attracts very good designers! And I'm looking forward to seeing their artwork!

We need more ideas. I think a jury should make a decission or an election. But, please, let us not start talking bad first ideas! :-X
If there is a similar well known logo, then it is worth reporting, yes.

I like the current one best :D

Although the round twin-peaks one is OK as well.

Well, there is some beef about the A.I.R Flier. It is about the similarity. Some of our new designs seems to have also similarities with other well-known logos. We are open for any changes or improvements on the given ones. Finding a proper logo is hard and we all know it. On the other hand we never got any shouts about the current logo from any other party as from some trolls. So see this as an opportunity to get something fresh out of it.

Well, this is unique to Manjaro. It distinctively  states that it's "Manjaro". I have a stick-on logo on my computer, flash card, phone, and etc. So I like to keep that if we can.  C:-)

You'll want to stay away from any designs which may have copywright infringement possibilities. The ones that bear a resemblace to Motorola for example. I like the one with the single mountain peak, reminsitant of 'Kilimanjaro', but my idea is to have 'Manjaro' climbing up the left side and 'Linux' going down the right side, or have 'Manjaro Linux' centered beneath the mountain.

Would it be OK to incorporate something as a homage to Arch into a logo? I have some ideas  :)

adjusted one the above a bit (the one below is my proposition for further development)

@Ivanwah: Don't let anything restrict your imagination beforehand.

@eugen-b I was thinking if Manjaro is to get a new logo, it probably should be something that is distinctly Manjaro. But it would still be nice to pay homage to Manjaro's father distro.

Anyway, I'll work on it tomorrow.
